Well that didn't take long. Just hours after Huntress singer Jill Janus issued a statement proclaiming the end of the band, her bandmates have now issued a statement of in which they attribute Janus's announcement to her ongoing mental issues. Here's the latest:

Last night Huntress frontwoman Jill Janus posted a status update about her frustration with health issues and online trolls, leading several sites to prematurely report that Huntress had broken up. Guitarist Blake Meahl has now issued the following statement clarifying the situation:

"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."
