Japan’s power metal heroines LOVEBITES have announced that their debut European headline tour will take place this November. The all-female five-piece, who recently won the Best New Band Award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, have joined British agency X-Ray Touring and will return to the UK and Germany for the tour, and perform in the Netherlands and France for the first time.

“We are extremely pleased to work with X-ray Touring,” states the band. “Now we have more opportunities to conduct live shows and tours outside of Japan. We’re really looking forward to perform in front of, and have direct contact with, more and more metal fans overseas. But most of all we’re looking forward to return to Germany and the UK, and play in the Netherlands and France for the first time. Let’s meet at the live venue.”

Latest EP Battle Against Damnation and debut album Awakening From Abyss are out now from JPU Records on CD and available for digital download and streaming.

Tickets for the London show (Wednesday 21st November – O2 Academy Islington) go on general sale from 9am BST Wednesday 22 August, with O2 priority available beforehand.
