Singer Jill Janus of the Los Angeles-based, occult-themed traditional heavy metal band HUNTRESS has posted the following message on the group's Facebook page:
"My beloved Hamburg [Germany], tonight for the very first time got a brutal case of food poisoning. I suspect a lamb chop.
"I display my humility and honesty for your viewing. (See photo below)
"This is the reality of tour life. And those socks!
"Will someone help me out and get this sick bitch some decent socks?
"I'm out of mind (duh) but need you.
"The fans who came to see HUNTRESS tonight [as the support act for LAMB OF GOD], please know how much I LOVE YOU. I might barf all night, but I'm thinking of you inside my porcelain throne.
"Anyone who attended the show at the Rock Cafe tonight, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will write you a personal note + send you a HUNTRESS patch.
"Now, back to the puke party."
HUNTRESS' sophomore album, "Starbound Beast", was released on June 28, 2013 in Europe and on July 2, 2013 in North America via Napalm Records. The CD was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, MUNICIPAL WASTE). The cover artwork for the effort was once again created by Vance Kelly (THE SWORD, GRAVEYARD, HIGH ON FIRE, PENTAGRAM, ALICE IN CHAINS, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, DEATH ANGEL), who previously worked on the group's debut album, 2012's "Spell Eater".
