Butcher Babies: Announce July 9 Release Of Debut Album 'Goliath' Band To Spend Summer On The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival
BUTCHER BABIES are proud to announce the 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]. The results offer an undeniable mission statement to the metal community: forget everything you think you know about the BUTCHER BABIES, because they've got their sights set to slay on 'Goliath.'
"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."
'GOLIATH' Track Listing:
1. "I Smell A Massacre
2. "Magnolia Blvd."
3. "C8H18 (Gasoline)"
4. "Grim Sleeper"
6. "In Denial"
7. "Give Me Reason"
8. "The Mirror Never Lies"
9. "Dead Poet"
10. "The Deathsurround"
11. "Axe Wound"
