“North America, prepare for facemelting! HUNTRESS is stoked to join the coveted Arch Enemy tour this fall. It’s an exciting time for women in heavy metal; we’re honored to be touring with Arch Enemy as the new era with Alissa White-Gluz begins. Kreator joining this killer tour makes us ecstatic, having been fans for many years. HUNTRESS is ready to rage!”
