Los Angeles-based, occult-themed, female-fronted traditional heavy metal band HUNTRESS will release its sophomore album, "Starbound Beast", on June 28 in Europe and on July 2 in North America via Napalm Records. The CD was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, California with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, AGNOSTIC FRONT). The cover artwork was created once again by Vance Kelly (SLAYER, GHOST, MASTODON) and can be seen below.
In support of "Starbound Beast", the band will tour across North America this summer as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The band will be featured on the Jägermeister Stage alongside MACHINE HEAD, BATTLECROSS and others. The tour kicks off June 29 in San Bernardino, California and runs through August 4 in Dallas, Texas.
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.
