‘People Are Afraid Of Sexuality, Especially Americans’

Hayley Leggs of TotalRock Radio conducted an interview with BUTCHER BABIES at the 2015 edition of the U.K.’s Download festival, which was held in June in Donington Park.

Speaking about the criticism BUTCHER BABIES receive from heavy metal fans who seemingly take issue with the sexy appearance of the band’s frontwomen, Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, Carla said: “There’s always gonna be haters. We actually don’t really play into the negativity, or read into the negativity. I think people are afraid of sexuality, especially Americans.”

She continued: “I’m not ashamed of who I am, or what I look like, or what I’ve done in my life. And, you know, I’m just gonna be who I am. And I don’t think that should detract, in any way, from what we’re doing with our music, or what we wanna do. And I just think it’ silly.

“I think most people that actually come to a live show and see us perform, they get it, and they know that we are a hundred-percent legitimate band that’s going out there and doing what we do. And I think the most important thing is that we all grew up as metal kids, we all grew up in the pit, we love heavy metal, and we live, breathe and die for it. We’re the real thing. And that’s all that matters.”

BUTCHER BABIES‘ sophomore album, “Take It Like A Man“, was released on August 21 via Century Media. The CD was produced by Logan Mader, who has previously worked with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DEVILDRIVER, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and GOJIRA.
