BUTCHER BABIES have released the official music video for their latest single, “Sleeping With The Enemy”. The song is the second taste of the band’s forthcoming EP, tentatively due later this year via an as-yet-undisclosed record label.
BUTCHER BABIES vocalist Carla Harvey comments: “‘Sleeping With The Enemy’ is one of the most vulnerable songs we’ve ever written. The song is the ultimate ‘own your own bullshit’ song… because the first step in change is always admitting there’s a problem, right?”
Singer Heidi Shepherd adds: “When face to face with what you presume as your enemy; who is it? Is it you? In ‘Sleeping With The Enemy’, the devil and angel on my shoulders met. This song is about hypocrisy and self realization. We can get so caught up in the rat race of life, as humans we tend to lose track of ourselves and our core values along the way. There comes a point where you look at the perceived problems in your life and realize there is one common denominator; yourself! Whether it’s in the lens you look at life through or an overall attitude, there comes a point where we must turn a negative into a positive. This song is that for me.”
Guitarist Henry Flury expresses: “And just when you thought we weren’t going to be heavy anymore… BOOM! This is definitely a song for the stage. Can you sing and circle pit at the same time?”
Asked in a recent interview with Syfy Wire’s “Metal Crush” how BUTCHER BABIES’ new material differs from 2017’s “Lilith”, Shepherd said: “It differs a lot. You still have the classic BUTCHER BABIES metal behind us, but I found myself wanting to sing more.
“When I first started BUTCHER BABIES, I was an angry young girl, and I had a lot to scream about. I’m a happy 35-year-old woman now, so I have a lot that I wanna sing about.”
BUTCHER BABIES next album will be the band’s first since its split with Century Media over a year ago.
