HUNTRESS: Sängerin Jill Janus beging Selbstmord

Jill Janus, Sängerin der US Band HUNTRESS hat sich scheinbar umgebracht. Jill Janus wurde nur 43 Jahre alt.


Die Nachricht von Jills Tod wurde von ihrem langjährigem Freund und ehemaligen Bandkollegen Casey Wood veröffentlicht, der auf Facebook folgende Nachricht veröffentlichte: „I’m in shock and can’t stop crying. My X best friend, singer has left the world. She was the biggest sweetheart and I hope that her Legacy lives on as it should! You were supposed to be on your way back here Jill Janus. I love you I miss you, and my door is still open for you always. Rest in peace my sister.“

Ein anderer von Jills früheren Bandkollegen, Johnny Jetson, kommentierte auf Facebook: „Very sad news… Just talked to my drummer Casey Wood who informed me that our singer Jill Janus has passed away. My deepest condolences to her family and loved ones… Jill was amazing and will be missed…“

Jill Janus hatte im Laufe der Jahre nicht nur mit psychischen Krankheiten in Form von bipolarer Störung, Schizophrenie, dissoziativer Identitätsstörung und Alkoholismus, sondern auch mit Krebs zu kämpfen.

HUNTRESSs drittes Album „Static“ wurde 2015 über Napalm Records veröffentlicht.

Wie eben auf der Facebook-Seite von HUNTRESS bekannt gegeben wurde, hat sich Jill Janus tatsächlich selbst das Leben genommen: „It is with crushed hearts that we announce that Jill Janus—frontwoman for the California heavy metal band Huntress—passed away on Tuesday, August 14. A long-time sufferer of mental illness, she took her own life outside of Portland, Oregon. Janus spoke publicly about these challenges in hopes of guiding others to address and overcome their mental illness.

Janus was a truly special creative involved with numerous musical projects including her role as vocalist for female metal/hard rock cover bands TheStarbreakers and Chelsea Girls. In addition, Janus was co-composer and creator of an upcoming rock opera with Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Angus Clark and had a decade-long career as NYC DJ Penelope Tuesdae. Her musical career began in childhood.

Beyond her accomplishments in the music world and her advocacy for mental health issues, she was a beautiful person passionate about her family, animal rescue and the world of natural medicine. She will be missed more than she could have ever known.“
