Huntress return this July with a new album entitled Starbound. Not having wasted any time, Starbound is the follow up to their most recent album Spell Eater, which was released last year. The band unveiled the first single from the album on their Facebook page called I want to F*** You To Death. This track is co-written by Motörhead's iconic frontman Lemmy.
Lead singer of Huntress Jill Janus spoke about how the pairing came about:
"I met Lemmy through my former band Chelsea Girls. We'd play hard rock and metal covers featuring guest celebrities. Lemmy was already friends with the girls, so he played "Ace of Spades" with us and it blew my mind. We stayed in touch and would meet up at The Rainbow for drinks. So I asked him a few months back over Jack & Cokes if he'd write lyrics for a Huntress song and he said 'Sure'. A few weeks later, I met him at the studio during Motorhead recording sessions. Lemmy handed me two two pieces of notebook paper with the lyrics for 'I Want to F*** You to Death'. I am beyond honored. To me, this is a love song. It is the most romantic song I've ever heard."
Lemmy had this to say:
“The first time I heard Jill’s voice with Chelsea Girls, it was phenomenal. I wrote these lyrics from her point of view, the Huntress. ‘I Want to F*** You to Death’ was inspired by her, written for her. I’ve always had a soft spot for her. And a hard spot too…”
The album is produced by Hatebreed and Shadows Fall producer Zeuss. It was recorded in LA at the Hobby Shop Studios.
Huntress will be at Download this year appearing on the Red Bull Studios Stage on Sunday 16th June.
