Earlier this year, spokesperson for BABYMETAL's American management company confirmed Yui Mizuno (a.k.a. Yuimetal) remained a member of the group after she was a no-show at the first two concerts of BABYMETAL's U.S. tour. A 5B Artist Management representative released a statement saying that "there is a new narrative for the future of the band which is currently evolving. The storyline has changed. This was the basis of the 'Metal Resistance Episode 7: The Revelation' video."

The representative went on to explain that the seven hooded figures in the bombastic clip represent a new era for the band, with the addition of new characters. "The who, when, where, and how of The Chosen Seven will be presented as the concept unfolds," the spokesperson said.

Formed in 2010, BABYMETAL is the offshoot of the Japanese pop idol group SAKURA GAKUIN that performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and heavy metal.
