The Butcher Babies have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The following statement was issued on the matter:
November 18, 2012 – Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the Butcher Babies to their worldwide family of artists. 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 year’s ‘Hottest Women In Rock’ by Revolver Magazine – the blood-splattered band left their mark on the United Kingdom in June, appearing on the Download festival and supporting Anthrax in Cardiff. They returned to America as direct support for Otep in fall, and are wrapping up their first headlining tour tonight in front of a hometown crowd at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip. The band – vocalists Harvey and Shepherd, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner – will be performing with labelmates In This Moment tomorrow night in Las Vegas.
“Century Media has been a huge supporter of Butcher Babies for a long time, and it feels natural to join their tight knit family,” said the band of their signing. “It’s an honor for us to be on a roster amongst many other bands that have inspired us for so long. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of this union.”
The Butcher Babies’ track “Axe Wound” is currently in rotation on Sirius XM Liquid Metal, and their short movie/video fo the track “Mr. Slowdeath” can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YttVe6v31Yk.
The band are currently at work on their full-length debut, which is slated for worldwide release in summer 2013 via Century Media Records.”
