As said in the show report, all of the Kami’s are new, something that hasn’t happened in years, probably since 2013, when the Kami was just starting.

Most of them are from Galactic Empire, who opened for BABYMETAL last year in Japan.

Full information on them below.

Shadow of Intent has a tour coming up in the US starting September 20th. So this should mean a change of drummer (at the very least) at some point.

    hey anonymous, you have the best chance of seeing original band. they are streaming that show back to Japan. i don’t think the Japanese fan base would accept some Amerikami band.hope that’s the case.

I signed up for 5 shows. spent a ton on airfare etc. I will be hugely disappointed if don’t see original Kami band.

Replacing the entire band that IS Babymetal is absolutely terrible. Just ruined the upcoming shows for me. Management for this band just seems to think everyone is replaceable. Time to stop wasting time and money when you don’t even know what band you’re going to get from day to day.
