Hailing from the City Of Angels, BUTCHER BABIES offer redemption from the overplayed underground, exorcising demons with a visceral sound matched only in scope by their explosive stage show. Frontwomen Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chase Brickenden juxtapose brutal, aggressive riffs with beautiful melodies that wail with anguish and hope for redemption.
The band signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records in December 2012, and a month later hit the road with Marilyn Manson on what proved to be one of the new year’s most talked about tours. Less than a year later, July 2013, they released their debut album GOLIATH, produced by Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Lamb of God, Hatebreed). Since then, Butcher Babies have toured relentlessly among the likes of Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Danzig, In This Moment, Cradle of Filth, Black Label Society, etc; played music fests including Mayhem, Knotfest, Louder Than Life, Aftershock, and Welcome to Rockville, etc. and appeared in the film Alleluia!: The Devil’s Carnival.
On August 21, 2015 Butcher Babies released their highly anticipated follow up, TAKE IT LIKE A MAN and released a music video for each song on the album. Carla Harvey said: “The majority of the album is very aggressive thrash metal. On this album, we wanted to go back to our roots, which were aggressive thrash, and ninety percent of the album is that.” Added co-vocalist Heidi Shepherd: “But the thing is we’re not ever gonna sacrifice who we are for that. What we’re attempting with this is to bring back the metal and the aggression into radio. So we kind of merged the two worlds. And radio stations who have heard it so far are impressed and we’re very excited for that.”
“What I like about Butcher Babies, and what I think separates them from similar bands, is that they surprised me. When I first saw their picture, I thought, ‘Eh, probably just another band that put some hot girls with skimpy outfits in the front to mask their bad playing.’ Then I watched one of their videos and was just blown away! Honestly, I was not expecting that sound to come out of those girls! And to top it off, they’re not just about growling and kicking ass, but they can actually sing, too – and they proved it on “Thrown Away”. Butcher Babies is an all-around talented thrash/metal band that not only turns heads, but rips them off in the process.” —Andy Gehron, Rebel Radio
