Butcher Babies Launch New Track, \”Monster\’s Ball,\” Online; New Album Set For Aug 21st Release

Butcher Babies have returned with their most abrasive and aggressive offering yet and while unrelenting, it also delivers crushing grooves backed with extremely catchy hooks. The much-anticipated new offering, Take It Like a Man [Century Media Records] was recorded in the Hollywood Hills with renowned producer Logan Mader [Five Finger Death Punch, Gojira] and it is set for an Aug 21st release.  BUTCHER BABIES kick off a massive European touring run at Download Fest in the UK this weekend and then will join GWAR and Battlecross across North America from Aug 25th to Sept 18th.

It’s not a gender thing. It’s the inner strength you have to find in order to pull your boots up and keep moving forward, whatever the situation may be.” While penning lyrics, Shepherd and Harvey also opened up like never before. Blatant, brutal, and (sometimes) belligerent honesty was the only rule. You have to dig to get that emotion out,” sighs Harvey. “Metal heads can sense authenticity. They know when you’re real. Everything we write comes straight from the heart and our own experiences. It’s not cookie cutter bullshit.” That openness has already turned countless fans into believers. Take It Like a Man espouses an inspiring final word. “We want to coerce feeling,” Shepherd leaves off. “If you’re a musician who does that, you’ve succeeded. We just want to inspire anyone who listens to us—and melt their faces off.”
