Exclusive: Huntress Reveal New Album Cover and Release Date

Huntress have teamed up with Revolver to announce the release date for the new album, the follow-up to their buzz-worthy 2012 debut full-length, Spell Eater, and unveil its cover art. The record, entitled Starbound Beast, has been confirmed for release on June 28 in Europe and on July 2 in North America via Napalm Records.  The band recorded the album at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, California, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front).

You can see the cover artwork below; like the cover of Spell Eater, it created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

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 29 in San Bernardino, California, and runs through August 4 in Dallas, Texas.  A complete list of dates can be found below. The band took part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Press Conference and performed live–check out footage below.
