Huntress Ends 2013 Victoriously – Ready To Start 2014 With A Fury

HUNTRESS Ends 2013 Victoriously – Ready to Start 2014 With a Fury

 

HUNTRESS has locked down another year of victories as a newcomer metal band. Forming only three years ago, the powerful pentad continues to deliver stellar live performances. 2013 was a landmark year for HUNTRESS, having released their sophomore album Starbound Beast, touring non-stop in support of their critically-acclaimed album, while continuing their quest to bring true heavy metal to the masses.  Their video for the song “Zenith” (directed by Phil Mucci) was ranked #3 on “Noisecreep’s Top 10 Videos of 2013“, #4 on “Loudwire’s Top 10 Videos of 2013″ and won “Video of the Year on Unsung Melody.   Starbound Beast was also voted #5 in LA Weekly’s Best L.A. Metal Albums of  2013 List.

Vocalist Jill Janus spoke about HUNTRESS‘s amazing year:

“This has been an incredible year for the band, 2013 began with Huntress writing and recording our 2nd album Starbound Beast, which was produced by Zeuss. We’ve been touring virtually non-stop — Sweden Rock Festival, Download Festival, The Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, Heavy MTL, Danzig’s 25th Anniversary Tour with Doyle, and ending a wild year as the opening act for Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage and Testament in North America. No rest for the wicked! Our video for ‘Zenith’ (directed by Phil Mucci) was filmed during our hectic tour schedule. It surpassed our expectations and truly captured the vision of our album. It’s part of our legacy, and part of our path to rise above the glorification of mediocrity. Huntress is here for the long haul; our determination, vision and love of music will continue to be our driving force. Hail Heavy Metal!”

2014 will begin right where 2013 left off – seeing HUNTRESS join forces again with Lamb of God, this time for a European/UK tour with Decapitated. The band will also play a string of headline shows; four of which have been announced so far with more to be added soon.  See below for a complete list of all dates.

Starbound Beast, is out now on Napalm Records. The album is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and in Best Buy stores in the US.

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

Monday October 14, 2013: I’m packing up the last of my belongings, putting them back into storage today. Leaving tonight for tour with Huntress. It’s been a whirlwind for us! Touring relentlessly since 2012 when we released our debut album ‘Spell Eater’ on Napalm Records. And now, one year later, we release our second album ‘Starbound Beast’ and are not slowing down. I’m blessed to have bands I’ve admired for years believe in Huntress. We’re so humbled and honored to be chosen by Lamb of God as support for their coveted fall tour with Killswitch Engage and Testament! We spent August with Danzig on his 25th Anniversary tour (mind still blown) and made life-long friends on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this past summer. What can you expect at a Huntress show this fall? True Heavy Metal with no filler, no triggers, no backing tracks, no voice modifiers, no corsets, no easy listening metal, no bullshit. We shall bring the fury. HAIL HEAVY METAL!

Huntress Tours Europe/UK With Lamb of God & Decapitated in 2014

HUNTRESS Wraps Up North American Tour With Danzig, Prepares For Global Domination with Lamb of God

HUNTRESS has kicked off yet another year of relentless touring, following the release of their critically acclaimed album Starbound Beast.  After an amazing run on this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, HUNTRESS has just wrapped up their tour with the legendary Glenn Danzig for his 25th Anniversary tour with Misfits guitarist Doyle.

Vocalist Jill Janus had this to say about her time on the road with Glenn Danzig:

“Touring with Danzig has been surreal. As an angsty teenage girl, I used to dream that one day I would duet with Glenn Danzig. Being chosen to tour with him was already mind blowing, but I also had the honor of singing “Skulls” with him in St. Paul, MN! I was watching the show from side stage. Doyle had just played a couple Misfits songs with the band. Then I see Glenn turn and ask if I’d like to join him for a duet! Performing with two of my idols was stellar. This has been a killer experience for HUNTRESS, watching Glenn Danzig nightly from the wings, he has mastered his craft and we’ve learned a lot from him on this short run. He’s also hilarious, his sense of humor and attitude have made our time with him so much more incredible! Hail Danzig!”

After a short break this September, HUNTRESS will be back on the road with heavy metal heavyweights Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, and Testament!  The tour kicks off October 22nd in Toronto, ON, and runs through November 26th in Silver Spring, MD.  It has also been confirmed that Lamb of God will be taking HUNTRESS to Europe and the UK in early 2014.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

HUNTRESS is proud to present their video for the song “Zenith”.  Bloody-Disgusting.com calls it “A Sci-Fi Horror Psychedelic Masterpiece!” The spectacular video was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE‘s “Fertile Green” was named best video of 2012 by Revolver. Check out the “Zenith” video HERE.

Starbound Beast, is out now on Napalm Records. The album is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and in Best Buy stores in the US.
