California metallers HUNTRESS have completed their third studio album titled Static to be released via Napalm Records on September 25, 2015. The highly-anticipated record was produced by Paul Fig (Grammy nominated engineer, Alice in Chains, Deftones, Trivium, Ghost BC) and Jim Rota (Fireball Ministry, Executive Producer Sonic Highways series, Producer Sound City Movie), Engineered and Mixed by Paul Fig.
Pre-orders of the album are now available exclusively via the Napalm Records Webstore.
Vance Kelly (Slayer, Alice In Chains, Evanescence, Ghost BC) has once again delivered stunning album artwork for HUNTRESS. The band’s creative unity with Vance Kelly remains strong, having also created album covers for Spell Eater and Starbound Beast.
HUNTRESS vocalist Jill Janus comments:
“The evolution of HUNTRESS bleeds into Static our third and most prolific album. It is the heaviest and catchiest record we’ve written. The process of writing and recording was new and exciting, at times very difficult for all involved, having to record in between relentless touring. Never have I been so honest in my approach to songwriting; I reveal life-long personal obstacles that I previously feared weaving into my lyrics. I’m so pleased to reveal the cover art for Static by my treasured art warlock Vance Kelly. Hail Heavy Metal!”
HUNTRESS will be hitting the high seas this September as part of the Mötorboat Cruise. The band will appear alongside heavyweights Mötorhead, Slayer, and Anthrax just to name a few. Expect high-energy sets from HUNTRESS featuring favorites off the first two albums and new head bangers from Static. The cruise takes place September 28th – October 2nd. Additional tour dates in support of Static will be announced soon!

Huntress was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal band Professor. The band thrives on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of melodic songwriting, occult science and bong rips. Huntress delivers a modern sonic attack while staying true to the roots of heavy metal, with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.
Huntress released their buzzworthy debut album Spell Eater in 2012 on Napalm Records. One year later, the critically-acclaimed Starbound Beast became a sophomore success. Lemmy Kilmister penned lyrics for “I Want To Fuck You To Death” which quickly became a radio hit. The powerful pentad is now on the verge of releasing their third studio album titled Static on September 25, 2015.
Huntress has ascended rapidly in the metal world, driven by fierce work ethic and a relentless tour schedule. They’ve supported Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Testament, Danzig, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Amon Amarth, Dragonforce, 3 Inches of Blood and have played a slew of festivals worldwide including Download Festival, The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Metal Fest Open Airs, Heavy MTL and Tidal Wave as headliner. This fall, Huntress joins the Mötorhead Mötorboat cruise featuring Mötorhead, Slayer, Anthrax and more, September 28-October 2. Upcoming 2015 tour dates will be announced soon!
