Le Butcherettes just released their new EP, “DON’T BLEED” a week ago and have already received rave reviews from media worldwide. The band announced they will join Chicano Batman on their North American tour and have added some headlining dates throughout the U.S. in support of their new EP, plus release new video today for “DON’T BLEED, YOU’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FOREST”. (Complete Tour Dates Below)
The punk-rock prog band will fuse their mind-bending performance and theatrical presence and support Chicano Batman, the four-piece American LA band during their thirty-five-date tour across the U.S. The band is known for both English and Spanish lyrics in their songs and a signature sound of Brazilian Tropicália mixed with soulful psychedelic rock.
“We are very grateful for the upcoming tour with Chicano Batman. We have been fans of theirs for a long time and are very grateful to be able to go on tour with them for two months! We are so happy that this is happening because they are one of the world’s greatest & creative bands while maintaining their humility, we are fortunate enough to call them our allies”, comments Le Butcherettes frontwoman, Teri Gender Bender about the upcoming tour.
After releasing their second single, “DON’T BLEED, YOU’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FOREST”last week Le Butcherettes surprise fans today with the video for the single. Le Butcherettes latest video was shot in El Paso, TX and directed by Violeta Félix who produced the EP, DON’T BLEED. “The song is very heavy. We wanted to make a music video that would juxtapose the heaviness with a feeling of light within darkness. Sometimes it takes a lot of mental energy to leave ‘the dark alley’ but once you do, the rest of life feels like it glides. From being the hunted little girl to being the hunter on the prowl with the city in the palm of her hand wanting only a taste nothing more”, commented Teri Gender Bender.

The seven song EP, “DON’T BLLED” brings Teri Gender Bender’s ethereal voice to bring out standout emotions that will make you jitter as Le Butcherettes fierce frontwoman carries out dialogues with God about womanhood, shame and revenge as, All Music recently mentioned in their review.
The EP is thematically centred around the personal experiences of Teri Gender Bender, and loudly gives a more leading role to keyboards and synthesisers than in some of Le Butcherettes previous albums, conserving the energy, aggressiveness and artistic integrity of their punk roots.
