Butcher Babies Announce New Double Album, Share Video For New Single “Red Thunder”


Butcher Babies have announced a July 07th release date for their new double album “Eye For An Eye…” & “…’Til The World’s Blind“. According to the band, that album will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their debut album “Goliath“. Further details on this new double album are pending. For now, the group have just debuted an official music video for their recent single “Red Thunder“.

Speaking of that, vocalist Heidi Shepherd offered:

“‘Red Thunder‘ is a massive nod to the style and sound of our beloved first album ‘Goliath‘ that launched Butcher Babies into the metal stratosphere exactly a decade ago. Bringing in the groovy, guttural, thrash elements that we became known for, alongside a soaring melodic chorus, ‘Red Thunder‘ culminates the dark, painful, and emotional side of the band. The song was written to remind the world that when she speaks, she speaks in Thunder!”

Fellow vocalist Carla Harvey added:

“At its core ‘Red Thunder‘ is a song about giving a voice to the voiceless. But not just any voice; a cry so powerful that it shakes those that have wronged them to their core. As Heidi and I were writing the lyrics, my personal inspiration became my sister, Julia, born with microcephaly.

She died very young, and I did not get the chance to know her, but I have one haunting photo of her as a baby that I brought with me to the session as inspiration. In the photo she has one arm outstretched to the camera and these beautiful piercing eyes; my heart breaks that she didn’t get to live a LIFE; but in my dreams, my father’s daughter blooms…and speaks in thunder.”

Guitarist Henry Flury also shared his thoughts on the track:

“The opening riff was the first spark of inspiration when writing this song and it was also the first clip we introduced to the fans when giving a sneak peek of the album. The fans loved it, and we knew this song would be a highlight on the new album because it is classic Butcher Babies. It has all the hallmarks of what a metal song should contain: Brutal vocals? Check. Crushing guitar riffs? Check. Pummeling double bass? Check. Guitar solo? CHECK.”
