Babymetal and Red Hot Chili Peppers are really hitting it off. The hard-hitting J-pop hybrid act opened for the funk-rocksters in the U.K. for seven dates in December, and now they'll team up in America for ten more shows. 

We should've seen this coming as soon as they covered Judas Priest together in London:

The trio will open for Metallica in Seoul, South Korea next week and for Guns N' Roses in Japan at the end of January. The act released their second album, Metal Resistance, last March. The Chili Peppers returned with The Getaway in June.
