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.
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!
