Lovebites are joining DragonForce on their UK tour

Japanese heavy metal band LOVEBITES will be joining British power metallers DragonForce on their UK tour in November. See the dates below.

Lovebites were founded in 2016 and consist of Asami (lead vocals), Miho (bass), Haruna (drums), Midori (guitars) and Miyako (guitars, keyboards). Influenced by many great heavy metal bands, Lovebites debuted with “The Lovebites” EP in May 2017. Their first full-length album “Awakening From Abyss” came out in October 2017. In June 2018, the band won the Best New Band award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and became the very first Japanese band in the world with such achievement. They released their second EP “Battle Against Damnation” the same month. Their latest record, a sophomore album titled “Clockwork Immortality”, dropped last year in December. 

Lovebites girls on the tour:

Miho (Bass): “I watched the DragonForce performance in Japan in June of 2017 for the first time. I was fascinated by the flood of aggressive but beautiful sounds and the overwhelming staging. I am very honored to be invited as a special guest of their UK tour this time. We will do our best performance to keep up with them!”

Miyako (Guitars/Keyboards): “We were talking with Herman at the Golden Gods after-party that it would be nice if we could play together someday. I am very happy that it will come true! I will do my best.”

Haruna (Drums): “I am very happy and excited to be touring with DragonForce in 11 cities in the UK as I have been listening to their music as a fan. I think it will be a great opportunity for many people to listen to our music, so I hope we can do memorable performance for the audience and enjoy ourselves at the same time.”
