Heavy metal band LOVEBITES have announced that they will release a new mini-album titled BATTLE AGAINST DAMNATION on June 6th via JPU Records. The news comes days after the band announced that they will be performing at Wacken Open Air 2018 in August.

BATTLE AGAINST DAMNATION will include four new tracks and will be mixed and mastered by engineers Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila of Finland’s Finnvox Studio. The release’s cover art will be illustrated by David López Gómez and Carlos Vicente León. The above names have had experience working on LOVEBITES’ first studio album AWAKENING FROM ABYSS and expect to expand the band's sound and visual world further.

Debut release THE LOVEBITES EP also featured four tracks, and later saw these pieces reimagined for the band’s full-length album. Battle Against Damnation will not follow suit. Its contents will stand alone as the next part in the band’s expanding power metal repertoire.

Bassist miho and vocalist asami comment on the themes of the mini-album:

“Humankind is faced with battles on a daily basis. Each person has their own fight, whether it’s illness, time, solitude, war or something else they have to face.” (miho)

“However, we consider that humankind’s most serious adversary is its own destiny. Sometimes it’s essential to defy the fate bestowed from the heavens. BATTLE AGAINST DAMNATION depicts such a fight.” (asami)

LOVEBITES are confirmed to be part of the Vans Warped Tour Japan 2018 line-up, alongside PROPHETS OF RAGE, KORN and LIMP BIZKET amongst others, and will perform on April 1st. They will follow this up by playing their biggest headline show to date at Shibuya’s Tsutaya O-East on June 28th.

In July, LOVEBITES will join heavy metal band ANTHEM on tour. Then in August LOVEBITES become the first all-female metal band from Japan to perform at Wacken Open Air in Germany.
