BUTCHER BABIES Are Looking For New Label Home

BUTCHER BABIES vocalist Heidi Shepherd spoke to "The Robbcast Podcast" about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band's fourth album. The disc will be the follow-up to "Lilith", which was released in October 2017 via Century Media.

She said (hear audio below): "We've been writing since October. No touring plans for 2019. We're really focusing on just making this album. We're in quite a shift in BUTCHER BABIES right now. We've been a signed band since 2012, and we are currently going for a different label now. So it's exciting for us. We had to kind of fight to get out of our last situation. [Laughs] And so it's such a release and such a big open door. And so we're really focusing on what we want to do musically and the sound we're gonna have. We're gonna definitely maintain that BUTCHER BABIES sound. You can always tell it's us. There's a lot of dynamic — there's always been a lot of dynamic — and I feel like holding ourselves to that is the smartest thing. And so we're just kind of playing around with all different stuff — playing around with different producers and just trying different things and seeing what label is gonna work best for us. So we're in kind of fun shift right now. It's awesome."

Earlier in the month, longtime BUTCHER BABIES bassist Jason Klein announced his departure from the band. He will play two final shows with BUTCHER BABIES — on August 1 at Gathering Of The Juggalos in Springville, Indiana and on August 3 at Pain In The Grass in Auburn, Washington — before exiting the group to focus on being a full-time father to his 11-year-old daughter.

"Lilith" was produced by Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SEPULTURA, SUICIDE SILENCE) and marked BUTCHER BABIES' recording debut with drummer Chase Brickenden, who replaced Chris Warner in 2016.
