BUTCHER BABIES stopped by the Q102 studio before their October 21 show in Springfield, Missouri to play a couple of acoustic songs for the first time ever. Check out video footage below.
BUTCHER BABIES‘ second album, “Take It Like A Man”, was released on August 21 via Century Media. The CD was produced by Logan Mader, who has previously worked with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DEVILDRIVER, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and GOJIRA.
In a recent interview with Houston Press, Heidi Shepherd, one of the two vocalists for BUTCHER BABIES, was asked if she ever feels like the media just focuses on the band’s sexuality and not its music. She responded: “Yeah. [The fact that we once wore nipple tape at our live shows for a short period of time] has been pounded into everyone’s head. The thing is, it wasn’t part of who we are. It was only for like, six months. Most journalists have dropped it, but every now and then, it pops back up. It’s just beating a dead horse, you know? There are just so many more exciting things you can ask. It will always come up. I completely agree [that media focuses on our sexuality]. We were approached just a little while ago by this outlet… they were doing this YouTube TV thing and they wanted us to do an entire sex-ed thing for their little show. We [fellow BUTCHER BABIES singer Carla Harvey and I] responded immediately with, ‘Absolutely fucking no.’ [Laughs] We were, like, a) we’re not even experts in that; and b) why would I go on TV talking about that? I have so much more to talk about and I have so much more [to offer], so many more things to say, you know? That really did bother us. Carla and I were, like, we don’t even want to interview with you guys if you guys just want to air all this kind of bullshit.”
