If you're looking for a breakout band at the 2013 Mayhem Festival, Huntress certainly fit the profile. The group issued the buzz-generating 'Spell Eater' album last year. They just issued their sophomore set 'Starbound Beast,' featuring a new song co-written with Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, and they have everyone waiting in anticipation for the awesome looking 'Zenith' video after recently issuing a trailer for the upcoming clip.
We love us some Huntress … and so should you! The California heavy metal act will release its sophomore album, 'Starbound Beast,' on July 2 via Napalm Records, but to tide you over, we've got the exclusive world premiere of the new Huntress track 'Blood Sisters' for your headbanging pleasure.
Huntress will have their biggest spotlight to date by appearing on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer, but things can be a bit costly for a relatively new band trying to get their footing in the music industry. So, to help offset the costs of the tour, the band has teamed up with fellow Mayhem participants Battlecross to share the costs for a bus this summer and they're using a "Virtual Yard Sale" to help pay for the journey.
Huntress are ready to take things to the next level and helping send them on their way is Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. The legendary musician recently spent time co-writing a new track with the band called 'I Want to F--- You to Death' that will appear on Huntress' forthcoming album, 'Starbound Beast.'
The 2013 Mayhem Festival may not arrive until late June, but four of the bands on the bill gave a great taste of what's to come at the Mayhem Festival press conference Monday (March 18) in Los Angeles. Headliners Rob Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch fielded questions, while up-and-coming acts Huntress and Butcher Babies took over the Whisky-a-Go-Go for an in-your-face performance.
