Huntress Announce New Single 'I Want To F*ck You To Death' - Co-Written By Motorhead's Lemmy

Tuesday, 21 May 2013 Written by Elliott Batte

Californian heavy metal outfit Huntress are back with a brand new album this year - and they’ve already unveiled it’s first track, which was co-written with Motorhead legend Lemmy.

Entitled ‘Starbound Beast’, the new album is the follow-up to their 2012 debut ‘Spell Eater’, and is set for a release on July 1st via Napalm Records. The first track to be taken from the album is the wonderfully-titled ‘I Want to Fuck You to Death’ - and it was co-written by frontwoman Jill Janus and the one and only Lemmy Kilmister.

Speaking of her collaboration with Lemmy, Janus commented:

“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 Fuck 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 himself has also commented on the track, saying:

“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 Fuck 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 band have put the track up for exclusive free stream via their Facebook page - all you have to do is go to the ‘Like us to Death’ tab here, ‘Like’ the band on Facebook, and then listen away.
