Japan's All-Female Metal Band LOVEBITES Returns With New Single, 'When Destinies Align'
December 3, 2019
Japan's iron maidens LOVEBITES show their samurai spirit in latest music video, "When Destinies Align", out today. The thrilling heavy metal romp is available to download now and is the lead track from the band's third album, "Electric Pentagram", out on CD in the U.K. via JPU Records from January 31, 2020 and available to pre-order from today.
In a short amount of time, LOVEBITES has thrashed their way halfway around the world in the pursuit of heavy metal. From being crowned "Best New Band" at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2018, to wowing crowds at Download festival and Bloodstock Open Air, and supporting DRAGONFORCE on their U.K. tour last month, the five-strong band refuse to slow down. Now, with "Electric Pentagram" on the horizon, LOVEBITES push forwards stronger than ever with this being their fifth CD released in the United Kingdom since their debut EP was unleashed less than 30 months ago.
Speaking on the album title, bassist Miho comments: "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."
"Electric Pentagram" includes 12 new recordings and sees Finnish engineer supremoes Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila return to mixing and mastering duties, respectively. The same team responsible for working on releases from CHILDREN OF BODOM, NIGHTWISH and STRATOVARIUS, among many more. Cover art duties also sees Spanish illustrators David López Gómez and Carlos Vincente León. The pair had worked on the cover art of LOVEBITES' previous albums, as well as HELLOWEEN's 30th anniversary book "Hellbook" and single "Pumpkins United".
