BUTCHER BABIES have announced a July 9 release of Goliath on Century Media Records.
The Los Angeles-based band - frontwomen Carla Harvey and Heidi Shephard, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner - wrapped their tour with MARILYN MANSON in late-February and went straight into the studio with producer Josh Wilbur (GOJIRA, LAMB OF GOD, HATEBREED).
"Working with Josh Wilbur was an incredible experience because he helped us explore ourselves as musicians and further develop the unique sound that is the Butcher Babies," says the band of their recording experience. "Being a debut album, this has been in the works since we were young, and we are so proud to have created a collaboration of all our personal influences into one complete sound."
'I Smell A Massacre'
'Give Me Reason'
'The Mirror Never Lies'
Butcher Babies will celebrate the album's release as part of this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they will be a mainstay on the Jagermeister stage and spend the summer alongside heavyweights including ROB ZOMBIE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, MASTODON, AMON AMARTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM and MACHINE HEAD.
