New York, NY (November 20, 2020) – Metal mainstays, recording artists Butcher Babies today release the music video for their new single, “Bottom Of A Bottle”.
The new music video premiered exclusively with Alternative Press who said, “It’s a powerful and ultimately very personal ode to pain and past relationships that speaks of drinking to forget and hoping the hangover keeps the memories at bay a little while longer.”
The video features footage collected over the past decade. The visuals include footage that fans will vibe on including BB on tour, recording, partying, and enjoying life in a band. The song and video “Bottom Of A Bottle” marks the next step for this seasoned band. The sound is a departure from the band’s extreme metal sound but yet borrows elements from that signature and builds on it creating a new breath of fresh air for fans.
Heidi Shepherd tells Alternative Press, “The way I see it, there’s nothing like sitting with your best friend and spewing your wildest hopes and dreams over some drinks. 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 guy at the end of the bar. During the writing process, 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, poured a drink, and watched the sun go down. In that exact moment, with my best friends, that’s all I needed, the inspiration was right with me. I started pouring my emotions onto paper and voilà! A song was born.”
Co-frontwoman Carla Harvey continues, “Pain and hurt are inevitable in life, and sometimes it’s you who hurts you, and that’s the absolute worst and calls for the most extreme reaction, in this case guzzling some whiskey. . When it comes to “Bottom Of A Bottle,” I think the pain stemmed more from a time when all of us in the band were feeling like we didn’t know what was next for Butcher Babies. It felt like our career was in a weird limbo, and that it could all implode at any moment. I think we’re over that melancholy hump… But hey, we’ll still drink about it!”
Prior to the video release, Butcher Babies celebrated 10 years as a band by releasing their own signature wine called “Butcher Burgundy”. The new wine will be available for purchase on the Butcher Babies website.
The new single marks the first release from Butcher Babies forthcoming EP, which is set for release in mid-2021.
For over a decade, Butcher Babies have been crushing stages worldwide with their vicious live performance and explosive energy. Their stage presence is a hypnotic spectacle that leaves audiences hungry for more. Frontwomen Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, guitarist Henry Flury, drummer Chase Brickenden and bassist Ricky Bonazza juxtapose brutal, aggressive riffs with beautiful melodies that wail with emotional redemption.
Hailing from the City of Angels, Butcher Babies aided in the jubilant revival of the metal scene on LA’s iconic Sunset Strip, landing the band a record deal with Century Media Records. The group’s first two studio albums reached the Top 5 on multiple Billboard charts. Butcher Babies hit a new record high with their latest LP, ‘LILITH’ as it debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Metal Charts and No. 7 on the iTunes Rock Charts with a duo of tracks hitting the U.S. Radio airwaves.
