BUTCHER BABIES announce 'Eye For An Eye...' + '…'Til The World's Blind' double album
BUTCHER BABIES have dropped a new single, “Red Thunder”, which explores the band’s darker side by leaning into their thrash/djent roots with an explosive guitar solo. An accompanying music video for the song was relesed yesterday (Tuesday, May 16), followed by a live question-and-answer session with the band.
Along with the release of “Red Thunder” comes the announcement of BUTCHER BABIES‘ double album “Eye For An Eye…” and “…’Til The World’s Blind” both due July 7 (“Red Thunder” will appear on “…’Til The World’s Blind”). The double album celebrates the tenth anniversary of BUTCHER BABIES‘ critically acclaimed debut, “Goliath”, released on July 9, 2013 via Century Media Records.
Watch “Red Thunder” below.
BUTCHER BABIES stated about the song: “‘Red Thunder’ is a massive nod to the style and sound of our beloved first album (2013) that launched BUTCHER BABIES into the metal stratosphere exactly a decade ago. Bringing in the groovy, guttural, thrash elements that we became known for, alongside a soaring melodic chorus, ‘Red Thunder’ culminates the dark, painful, and emotional side of the band. The song was written to remind the world that when she speaks, she speaks in Thunder!”
BUTCHER BABIES released their last album ‘Lillith’ on Century Media in 2017.
Since 2020, BUTCHER BABIES have independently released a handful of newly energized singles, some of which were produced and co-written by Matt Good (FROM FIRST TO LAST),including “Bottom Of A Bottle”, “Sleeping With The Enemy”, “Yorktown”, “Last Dance” and “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!” The latter was inspired by the DC Comics character Lobo, a heavy metal bounty hunter.
