Carla Harvey, one half of the female-fronted duo that screams for the BUTCHER BABIES, has released a new novel, Death and Other Dances, which is available in select bookstores, as well as Amazon, Amazon Europe, and Kindle. This semi-autobiographical work tells the story of Autumn Franklin - an awkward, biracial Detroit native - that is disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background. When Autumn's young parents divorce, she becomes even more withdrawn, yet survives the cards that she's been dealt by relocating to the alluring City of Angels, where she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between a drastic career change: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin.

LA's breakthrough Metal act, BUTCHER BABIES, unleashed their debut album, Goliath, last year to critical acclaim, with press hailing it as a "relentless, full-force storm from start to finish" (New Transcendence.com). On September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe), the band will release a new EP of cover tunes, titled Uncovered, that will surely please fans of the BUTCHER BABIES, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally (THE OSMONDS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, etc.).


In regards to BUTCHER BABIES' cover of THE OSMONDS' "Crazy Horses", Donny Osmond comments: "When we released 'Crazy Horses,' we were pushing against what THE OSMONDS were known for, but it became a greatest hit. The BUTCHER BABIES have reinvented this song in a creative and innovative way -- and that's what music is about. Now...What if I had recorded 'Puppy Love' like this?"
