HUNTRESS Broke Up, Except Not Really

Huntress is still a band.

Huntress is still a band.

Oh man, I feel bad for Huntress frontman Jill Janus. The woman has talked about her issues with mental health before and they even came to the forefront of the band this week when Janus took to Facebook (in a now-deleted post) to announce the band was over.

“The end. I told ya the HuntressTrilogy would fulfill my purpose. I’m packing it up. Maiden, Mother, Crone. I struggle through life with Bipolar, Schizophrenia & Dissociative identity disorders. I beat uterine cancer with a devastating hysterectomy. I will continue to create music. On my terms. Fuck the meaningless noise and trolls. My way, forever. Suck it. Done.”

Then later on, guitarist Blake Meahl took things into his own hands to clarify the issues the band was having. He says the band isn't over and that Janus is just having a rough go of it right now.

“Our vocalist Jill Janus posted an announcement last night that she was having difficulty dealing with devastating health issues. Four months ago she had major surgery to remove cancer from her uterus. She needs time to fully recover from her hysterectomy and to continue treatment for her mental health issues. Her bouts with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and disassociative identity disorder have been particularly difficult lately and are ultimately responsible for her unfounded statement last night.

We will resume touring in December when Huntress joins Black Label Society 12/26-12/31. Thank you for your kindness and understanding. Blake Meahl"

Janus also took to Twitter to fix things up.

I mean, maybe it's not such a popular opinion, but I do feel bad for Janus. Here's hoping she gets the help she needs sometime soon before the tour.
