BUTCHER BABIES Dug Deep Into Their Childhoods

On April 28, RockConfidential.com conducted an interview with BUTCHER BABIES frontwomen Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey in Knoxville, Tennessee. A couple of excerpts follow.

BUTCHER BABIES‘ new album was produced by Logan Mader, who has previously worked with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DEVILDRIVER, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and GOJIRA.

On the lyrical themes covered on BUTCHER BABIES‘ forthcoming sophomore album, due at the end of the summer via Century Media Records:

Heidi: “It’s just about experiences in our lives. And this album, in particular, we really dug into really deep into our childhoods and even during our adulthood, and pulled some suppressed memories, suppressed emotions out. I can’t tell you how many times we got emotional during the writing and the recording of it. To us, it’s important to have that. And, as an artist, we’re able to take those memories and turn them into positives. That’s something that we aim for.”

Carla: “We encourage our fans to do that with us. If a song hits you and makes you feel a certain way, sing along with us. Bleed your heart out with us while we’re up there on stage. It’s our favorite part of the show — to watch all the kids singing along to these lyrics that mean so much to us. We’re so thankful to be in a position to reach people. It’s a really beautiful thing for us.”

Heidi: “There are people that helped us, musicians that helped us as kids, gave us a voice. And now we’re doing that for other people, and I feel like that’s the biggest blessing in the world.”

On the writing process for BUTCHER BABIES‘ upcoming CD:

Carla: “The first album, they always say you had your whole life to write the first album, and the second album we had to write when we had some spare time on the road and in the studio, which is a completely different experience. It’s not as organic as the first one. But this is obviously the way we’re gonna have to write from now on, when you’re touring so much.”
