BUTCHER BABIES: Multi-Camera Footage Of 'Mayhem' Press-Conference Performance

Multi-camera video footage of BUTCHER BABIES performing the song "Mr. Slowdeath" on March 18 at a press conference at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California to announce the sixth-year lineup for Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival can be seen below.

BUTCHER BABIES last year signed a deal with Century Media Records. The band's full-length debut is scheduled for release before the end of 2013.

Fronted by Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd — named two of the "Hottest Women In Rock" by Revolver magazine — the blood-splattered group left its mark on the United Kingdom in June 2012, appearing on the Download festival and supporting ANTHRAX in Cardiff. They returned to America last fall as direct support for OTEP and this past winter on a tour with MARILYN MANSON.

In a recent interview with Rock Confidential, Carla said: "We're really excited for our full-length album through Century Media. We've been in the studio every single day writing. We're like little kids now, we're so excited." Heidi added: "To have it released through a label is going to be so awesome for us, especially a label we all looked up to. Century Media has always been like family to us. For them to take us on board and give us such high hopes and good support is really great." Carla continued: "We needed a label to take us to that next level. We're very proud of what we did on our own, but it was time to give the reins to someone else. We're very hands on. We run everything, but we need that machine behind us as well."

Despite the fact that Heidi and Carla often perform topless with nothing but nipple tape on, they believe that what they do is actually empowering to women. "I think we can definitely touch on that regardless of what we wear," Heidi said. "We can empower women or people in general to do what they want. Female empowerment is obviously where it started, but it can be about anybody that has a dream and a goal they really want to go for. It's never too late. We're not 21-year-old girls. We wish we were! We've had different careers, different paths in life. I got married once. We've done different things. We thought every time that was the end-all-be-all. It's never too late to follow your dreams. That's something that both of us really stand for."
