During a recent interview with Rapture Radio, Butcher Babies vocalist Heidi Shepherd discussed the band’s upcoming double album. According to her, the effort will include “really dark stuff” as well as “really playful stuff.”
Shepherd said the following when asked if the band are planning to release a new album soon:
“Yes. Absolutely. There’s actually a double album coming out this summer.
We took 2019 off of touring to write and record an album that we were set to release in 2020, and, obviously, the world died — it was basically a fend-for-yourself moment. So we put everything on hold and we decided to use that time to write. And so we wrote a ton during that time. And so we decided to put the album on hold and go and record more. So now we have a double album coming at you this summer… And I’m so excited for people to hear all of this music that we’ve made within the span of the last four years. In fact, this morning we got the final mix to one song that’s just finished. So you’re gonna hear stuff we wrote in 2019, and then you’re gonna hear stuff that we wrote and just finished last week.”
She also added the following when asked if the band’s latest single, “Beaver Cage,” is a good representation of the record:
“There’s a lot going on [the upcoming double album]. Because this was written in two different parts, I think you’re gonna hear a lot of different sides to Butcher Babies. But I would say overall ‘Beaver Cage’ is a great representation of the album. There’s a lot of really, really dark stuff on this album — we haven’t done that in a while; there’s really dark stuff — but then there’s also really playful stuff, like ‘Beaver Cage’. So I think that this is a really great representation of not just the album but the band too.”
