In support of Starbound Beast, the band will be touring across North America this summer as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Huntress will be featured on the Jagermeister Stage alongside MACHINE HEAD, BATTLECROSS and others. The tour kicks off June 29th in San Bernardino, CA and runs through August 4th in Dallas, TX.
The band took part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Press Conference and performed live, check out footage below:
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.
