Butcher Babies vocalist Heidi Shepherd has said that the band will “…have something coming out in October.”
Speaking in interview with Music Feeds, Shepherd said: “We have something coming out in October. I can’t say exactly what it is. But I’m gonna hint to it, ’cause I want to hint to it. Yes, we have something dropping in October, something that we’re all very excited about and we actually worked really hard on. And then our new album is well underway, and that will be coming out next year.”
Following non-stop touring across North America in the earlier part of the year, Butcher Babies have spent most of the summer writing and recording material for their forthcoming sophomore album, expected to be released via Century Media sometime in 2015.
In an interview with Maine Music News, Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey said of the band’s debut album, Goliath: “We spent six weeks in pre-production and recording to make an album that gives us goose bumps every time we hear it.
“We all come from different musical backgrounds. I love old-school stuff like Slayer, old Metallica, I love Pantera. [Our drummer] Chris [Warner], loves Marilyn Manson. Heidi, my co-vocalist loves nu-metal. Henry [Flury], our guitar player, loves Meshuggah, and Jason [Klein], our bass player, loves death metal. So we managed to put all the different kinds of metal that we love into this album. It is so organic, and it sounds so good. We are getting tweets and Facebook messages all day long from our fans telling us how great it is. So besides what the critics say, what matters most is that we are proud of it and our fans are loving it.”
Goliath sold 3,300 copies during it’s first week of release, securing 107th place on the Billboard 200 music chart.
