Huntress’ Jill Janus talks Mayhem and Starbound Beast

With this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival kicking off this week, the bands playing the festival are putting the finishing touches on their sets and finishing up rehearsals before heading out for the three-month trek.

One of those bands, Huntress, has been generating a lot of buzz lately and will be kicking off the festival each day with what’s guaranteed to be a theatrical and gut-checking performance.

Huntress, lead by frontwoman and “stoner witch” Jill Janus, are also slated to release their sophomore record, Starbound Beast, on July 2, just days after Mayhem Festival commences and features some of the band’s strongest songs and most complete work.

With adrenaline-rushing metal and being one of the hottest rising bands on the circuit right now, the world is in front of Huntress and they’re primed to take it by the horns and go straight to the top.

Singer Jill Janus recently sat down with The Front Row Report to talk about Starbound Beast, their plans for Mayhem Festival, presenting Doro Pesch with the Metal Hammer Golden God award and more. Listen to the entire interview below:
