Butcher Babies have gone to the desert in their new video for the single “Red Thunder”. The single, which debuted last year, will be part of the bands first double album which drops this July. “EYE FOR AN EYE…” and …‘TIL THE WORLD’S BLIND” will drop July 7th, almost ten years to the day of the bands debut album “Goliath”. The band will also be hitting the road this summer with Mudvayne, Coal Chamber, GWAR and Nonpoint on the “The Psychotherapy Sessions” tour from July 20 to August 26.
“At its core ‘Red Thunder’ is a song about giving a voice to the voiceless,” says co-frontwoman Carla Harvey. “But not just any voice; a cry so powerful that it shakes those that have wronged them to their core. As Heidi and I were writing the lyrics, my personal inspiration became my sister, Julia, born with microcephaly. She died very young, and I did not get the chance to know her, but I have one haunting photo of her as a baby that I brought with me to the session as inspiration. In the photo she has one arm outstretched to the camera and these beautiful piercing eyes; my heart breaks that she didn’t get to live a LIFE; but in my dreams, my father’s daughter blooms…and speaks in thunder.”
“It has all the hallmarks of what a metal song should contain,” elaborates guitarist Henry Flury. “Brutal vocals? Check. Crushing guitar riffs? Check. Pummeling double bass? Check. Guitar solo? CHECK.”
