Butcher Babies have released a video for their cover of Napolean XIV’s song “They’re Coming To Take Me Away.”
The track is taken from the metal band’s EP of cover versions, Uncovered.
Says Butcher Babies singer Carla Harvey: “It was a blast recording songs that we have been fans of our entire lives and putting our spin on them.”
“We all chose a song that had some significance to us. My pick was They’re Coming To Take Me Away, because I have a vivid memory of my stepdad, who I considered completely insane, playing it over and over again on his car stereo when I was a pre-teen.”
“The song is about being taken away to a mental institution. I can still see him tapping his fingers on his steering wheel to the beat.”
Discussing the video, singer Heidi Shepherd said: “As kids, we always loved this creepy, quirky song around Halloween time. So, we thought it would be perfect to ring in the Halloween season with this video reminiscent of old slasher films.”
