Huntress’ Jill Janus On Her Recent Post: “So Often The Things I Say Or Do Are Misconstrued”

Yesterday, numerous sites reported that Huntress was breaking up due to a statement made by vocalist Jill Janus, which was later dispelled by guitarist Blake Meahl, and Janus herself. Now, Janus has issued a new statement about the situation, which you can read via the below Facebook post:

Huntress Are Not Breaking Up

Earlier today, numerous sites reported that Huntress was breaking up due to a statement made by vocalist Jill Janus. Guitarist Blake Meahl and Janus have both issued new statements since then, saying her post was a result of her mental health issues. Hopefully, she will get well soon.

In case you were wondering, Janus’ previous statement was deleted, but can be read below:

“The end. I told ya the Huntress Trilogy would fulfill my purpose. I’m packing it up. Maiden, Mother, Crone. I struggle through life with Bipolar, Schizophrenia & Dissociative identity disorders. I beat uterine cancer with a devastating hysterectomy. I will continue to create music. On my terms. Fuck the meaningless noise and trolls. My way, forever. Suck it. Done.”

Huntress Drop Off Avatar, Gemini Syndrome, Etc. Tour

Huntress have dropped off their September tour with Avatar, Gemini Syndrome, and First Decree. The band will be taking time off, so Jill Janus can fully recover from her recent hysterectomy.

Janus issued the following statement:

“Two months ago I had major surgery and ever since I have been eager to get back on stage. On August 26th, Huntress played a sold-out show in Los Angeles at Loaded. The performance was incredible, my voice is strong, and I felt so happy to be back on stage. After the show, I had complications from uterine cancer surgery that left me in severe pain.

Although I am now cancer-free, I am clearly not yet healed properly. Due to doctor’s orders, Huntress will be unable to join the tour we were so looking forward to this September with Avatar, Gemini Syndrome and First Decree.

In one month, I will celebrate the return of my beast mode on the Motorhead Motorboat Cruise 9/28-10/2, as it will take one more month to properly heal from surgery. I’m so excited for the release of our new album Static on 9/25 and the amazing music video debut of “Sorrow” coming in a few weeks. Huntress will announce new tour dates soon and I can’t wait to meet our fans at many more shows to come! Sending my love to all my Creatures!”

Huntress Premiere New Song “Flesh”

Huntress have premiered a new song titled “Flesh,” via Revolver. This song is from the band’s new album, Static, which will be released on September 25.

Jill Janus said the following about the track:

“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!”
