While we were locked inside during the toughest months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the members of heavy metal band LOVEBITES spent their time recording new material to follow up their third full album Electric Pentagram. All their hard work is now coming to light on March 10 in the form of their third EP titled GLORY, GLORY, TO THE WORLD to share some light and positivity among their fans.
With the coronavirus pandemic still ongoing, it was a challenge, mentally and physically, to produce this mini album. On the other hand, the songs that we’ve created to penetrate that darkness have become creations full of light and feelings of relief. This release is overflowing with positive power from LOVEBITES like you’ve never seen before.
This new release is composed of four original tracks produced by Steve Jacobs, with mixing and mastering by Finnish engineers Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila. LOVEBITES’ recurring alliance with this team sounds very promising, given the excellent results in all of their previous releases.
LOVEBITES fans overseas will be rejoiced to know that JPU Records is working on an international release of GLORY, GLORY, TO THE WORLD. Further details will be announced soon so please stay tuned!
Aside from the four-track regular edition, GLORY, GLORY, TO THE WORLD can be purchased in limited editions A, and B. The limited edition A adds a DVD, while the limited edition comes with a second CD instead. The content of the additional discs included in either of the limited releases is yet to be specified. The band has stated that just like the BATTLE AGAINST DAMNATION mini-album, there are no plans of including any of the songs in future full album releases, giving us one more incentive to grab a copy of the album.
Unfortunately, the band has recently postponed three shows from their upcoming RIDE FOR VENGEANCE TOUR 2021 following the state of emergency declared by the Japanese government due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
