Butcher Babies Postpone “Office X-Mas Party” Livestream Show

Butcher Babies were forced to postpone their December 18 “Office X-Mas Party” livestream show after a member of their team tested positive for COVID-19. The band commented:

“Ugh!!! We were so excited to perform our livestream for you this Friday, but unfortunately, even after taking the recommended safety precautions, a member of the Butcher Babies team has tested positive for Covid. As a result, we must cancel and postpone to ensure everyone’s safety. We are currently all in quarantine and taking necessary measures for our and our teams health. This comes as a giant shock and huge bummer as we have been planning this for months. Stay safe out there! We love you and we will be back in the new year! Refunds are available through Ticketmaster or you have the option of holding your spot for the TBD rescheduled date in February.”

Butcher Babies Premiere New Song “Sleeping With The Enemy”

Butcher Babies have premiered a new song titled “Sleeping With The Enemy.” You can check that out below:

Carla Harvey said the following:

“‘Sleeping With The Enemy’ is one of the most vulnerable songs we’ve ever written. The song is the ultimate “own your own bullshit” song…because the first step in change is always admitting there’s a problem, right?”

Heidi Shepherd continued:

“When face to face with what you presume as your enemy; who is it? Is it you? In ‘Sleeping with the Enemy’ the devil and angel on my shoulders met. This song is about hypocrisy and self realization. We can get so caught up in the rat race of life, as humans we tend to lose track of ourselves and our core values along the way. There comes a point where you look at the perceived problems in your life and realize there is one common denominator; yourself! Whether it’s in the lens you look at life through or an overall attitude, there comes a point where we must turn a negative into a positive. This song is that for me.”

Henry Flury added:

“And just when you thought we weren’t going to be heavy anymore… BOOM! This is definitely a song for the stage. Can you sing and circle pit at the same time?”

As previously reported, Butcher Babies will also be playing an “Office Christmas Party” livestream concert on December 18 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. Tickets can be found HERE.

Butcher Babies Premiere “Bottom Of A Bottle” Music Video

Butcher Babies have premiered a new video for their latest single “Bottom Of A Bottle.“ That track was released last month, alongside the band’s new “Butcher Burgundy” wine.

Heidi Shepherd told Alternative Press the following about the song:

“The way I see it, there’s nothing like sitting with your best friend and spewing your wildest hopes and dreams over a bottle of whiskey. Heck, that’s how Carla and I decided to go all in on this roller coaster. There are those moments where you just need someone to talk to, whether it’s your best friend, your family or that drunk at the end of the bar.

During the writing process of this song, I was feeling particularly lonely. In a way, stuck. I think we all were. We were having a hard time feeling motivated or inspired. So we sat down outside, poured a drink and watched the sun go down. In that exact moment, with my best friends, that’s all I needed. All the inspiration was right with me. I started pouring my emotions onto paper and voilà! A song was born.”

Butcher Babies Premiere New Song “Bottom Of A Bottle”

Butcher Babies have premiered a new song titled “Bottom Of A Bottle.” This track features Andy James (Five Finger Death Punch) and it will appear on the band’s upcoming album, which is tentatively set to be released in early 2021.

Heidi Shepherd commented:

“It was a beautiful, summer evening in the Arizona desert when ‘Bottom Of A Bottle’ was created. I sat outside watching the sunset while sipping on a drink and realized that all the inspiration I needed was all around me.

This song is a product of the environment it was created in. In that moment, I was the guy at the end of the bar telling stories from yesterday-year. I’ve been there a time or two so the lyrics just flowed. This song holds a special place in my heart because of that exact moment. We’ve been sitting on this song for a long time so I cannot wait for our fanbase to take the trip with us!”

Carla Harvey added:

“Haven’t we all been at the bottom of the bottle at some point? Name a better way to to commiserate about it than by writing an anthem that turns the heartache into a celebration. We are pumped to finally release some new tunes that showcase a different side of who we are, yet remain uniquely Butcher Babies.”

Butcher Babies Planning To Release New Single In September

During a recent interview for Syfy Wire’s “Metal Crush,” Heidi Shepherd confirmed that Butcher Babies are planning to release a new single in September. The singer also talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album:

“It differs a lot. You still have the classic Butcher Babies metal behind us, but I found myself wanting to sing more. When I first started Butcher Babies, I was an angry young girl, and I had a lot to scream about. I’m a happy 35-year-old woman now, so I have a lot that I wanna sing about.”

Carla Harvey Says Butcher Babies “Have Some Really, Really Cool Stuff Coming Up”

During a recent appearance on the “Appetite For Distortion” podcast, Carla Harvey discussed Butcher Babies’ current plans. She said the following:

“We canceled our whole touring here, like everyone else did. Out of necessity, we had to do it. I’m not happy about it. But we do have some really, really cool stuff coming up. We’re doing an online festival in Europe that’s gonna be awesome. We have some big surprises for you guys for that. It’s gonna be an hour-long show from us. We have a show that had been previously unreleased that we’re releasing, and three quarantine-style videos that we’ve done that are fan favorites, so we’re really excited about that. And we have really, really big news coming in the next couple of weeks.”
