Christened “Best New Band” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards upon emerging and streamed and viewed millions of times, five Japanese women shock power metal to life like never before as LOVEBITES. Cemented as the most promising force in the Japanese heavy music scene, the band returns with the much-anticipated new single “Signs of Deliverance” today. They teamed up with Consequence of Sound’s Heavy Consequence to premiere the track.
“‘Signs of Deliverance’ is a song we were playing at shows in July last year even though it didn’t have a title yet,” says guitarist Miyako. “We performed the song at the UK tour supporting DragonForce in November last year, as well. Listen carefully to the intro where the sounds of the string instruments are piling up together, and the guitar solo part.”
The track is a fiery, fleet-fingered display of power metal mastery from the hands and minds of a quintet about to take the world by storm. It also heralds the release of the group’s new album Electric Pentagram, out April 24 via Red River Entertainment/BFD, in partnership with JVCKENWOOD Victor Entertainment Group and distributed by The Orchard in North America. The album is available for pre-order here.
“We are very excited that our new album Electric Pentagram will be released in the U.S. and Canada,” Lovebites says. “This new album has made our bonds as a band stronger than ever. Lovebites is an electric pentagram. A pentagram is a five-pointed star consisting of five lines. It’s been an emblem that’s adorned amulets and talismans since ancient times as a symbol of protection. That’s why we felt Electric Pentagram is the perfect title for this album. We are five points brought together to protect heavy metal. We hope you will enjoy the album!”
The band has also shared the video for the new song “When Destinies Align.” Watch and listen here.
It’s a sign that metal is changing — and LOVEBITES are leading the way.
Inspired by western metal masters, LOVEBITES boast powerful twin guitars, soprano vocals, and a tight rhythm section. After debuting in 2017, they entered the world stage and began performing overseas. In 2018, Lovebites won the “Best New Band” award at Metal Hammer‘s Golden Gods Awards. They have performed at some of the biggest metal festivals, including Wacken Open Air (Germany), Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium), and Download Festival (UK, Spain). In fall of 2019, they performed as a special guest for DragonForce’s UK tour.
