California metallers HUNTRESS will release their third studio album, titled "Static", on September 25 release via Napalm Records. The highly anticipated record was produced by Paul Fig (Grammy-nominated engineer who has previously worked with ALICE IN CHAINS, DEFTONES, TRIVIUM, GHOST) and Jim Rota (FIREBALL MINISTRY, executive producer for "Sonic Highways" series and producer of "Sound City" movie), and was engineered and mixed by Fig.
The official lyric video for the "Static" song "Flesh" can be seen below.
Said HUNTRESS vocalist Jill Janus: "'Flesh' is catchy and hard rock, it's lusty and bloody, a blackened-party metal make out song.
"When my bandmates brought me the killer composition, I wrote the lyrics as my storyline unfolded like bizarre film noir. A female serial killer who would transform into a demonic seamstress, preying upon women. She desires their flesh for fashion.
"Once again, I've collaborated with the immensely talented Vance Kelly to bring my story to life. Our telepathic artistic connection has created a twisted romantic lyric video for a summer of lust. Enjoy!"
HUNTRESS has teamed up with Pledge Music to offer pre-sales of the new album. When you order "Static", the band's Pledge Music page is "unlocked," giving fans an exclusive pass to HUNTRESS content. Unique pre-sale packages have been created just for their fans.
In true HUNTRESS fashion, the band filmed a hilarious promotional video. You can watch it now on the Pledge Music page and get the new album today.
Vance Kelly (SLAYER, ALICE IN CHAINS, EVANESCENCE, GHOST) has once again delivered stunning album artwork for HUNTRESS. The band's creative unity with Kelly remains strong, with Vance having also created album covers for HUNTRESS's previous CDs "Spell Eater" and "Starbound Beast".
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 lifelong 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."
