Jill Janus is no longer using social media, but she did check in with an update on all her upcoming projects. These range from the new Huntress album, which is expected to be released in fall 2018, her solo work, and more. You can read her full statement below.
Janus said the following:
“Creatures of Planet Earth, as many of you are aware, I broke up with the internet several months ago. Creature Cvlt formed and has been servicing all social media for myself and Huntress. Many fans have asked when will Album 4 be released, when will we tour again? We’re aiming for a Fall 2018 release and headlining tour of North America. Europe and UK touring to follow. Huntress will be back in full beast mode for festival season 2019.
In addition to Huntress, I’m fronting The Starbreakers, an all-girl heavy metal coverband with guitarist Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper, We Start Wars), guitarist Courtney Cox (Iron Maidens, Femme Fatale), bassist Emily Ruvidich (Paradise Kitty, Misty Day) and drummer Lindsay Martin (We Start Wars, Glam Skanks). Next show: January 18th at The Whisky in Los Angeles.
I’m collaborating with Monte Pittman (ex-Prong guitarist and current guitarist for Madonna) and producer/sound engineer Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Antrax). Our project is a life goal I’m finally close to accomplishing. I’m also composing a very exciting project with Angus Clark, lead guitarist for the Transiberian Orchestra and DareDevil Squadron. Our project will be announced early next year. And…expect a solo project that I’ve been writing absolutely on my own, which is challenging considering I’ve always relied on my Huntress bandmates as songwriting partners.
I continue to contribute my voice to various projects, including the live action movie ‘Realm of the Damned’ as commander vampire Athena, featuring David Vincent (ex-Morbid Angel vocalist) and Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth.
Heshette, my occult-themed jewelry line just celebrated 700 sales. So, yeah, I’ve been busy. But I’ve gotta stay busy or I get into trouble.
Those are the updates! I’m optimistic about 2018. Stay heavy. JJx”
