BUTCHER BABIES: New Video Interview Posted Online

On February 15, Stefanie Heminger of “Stefanie’s Rock Show” conducted an interview with BUTCHER BABIES when the band played in Modesto, California as the support act for MARILYN MANSON. You can now watch the chat below.

BUTCHER BABIES recently signed a deal with Century Media Records. The band’s full-length debut is scheduled for a summer release.

Hailing from Los Angeles, the BUTCHER BABIES have emerged as one of the biggest draws on the Sunset Strip, their incendiary blend of heavy metal and horror-inspired theatrics inciting crowds worldwide.

Fronted by Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd — named two of the “Hottest Women In Rock” by Revolver magazine — the blood-splattered band left its mark on the United Kingdom in June 2012, appearing on the Download festival and supporting ANTHRAX in Cardiff. They returned to America last fall as direct support for OTEP.

When asked by Revolver magazine why the BUTCHER BABIES refer to themselves as “slut metal” and what the hell “slut metal” exactly is, Shepherd said, “We can’t go balls out — so we go tits out! When girls are perceived as sexual or outspoken, they get labeled sluts, but we embrace those qualities and bring them to our music as well. BUTCHER BABIES is true slut metal: We’re doing what we want, how we want.”

On the topic of BUTCHER BABIES‘ goals, Harvey told Revolver, “To bring slut metal to the masses — duh! In all seriousness, we feel like we are just touching on what we are capable of, and we want to continue to grow, get our music out there, and get on the road! There are so many repressed people out there that need to see a show like ours. Hopefully they will take home with them the message that they are able to do everything they want to do regardless of who they are told they are supposed to be.”
