BUTCHER BABIES – launch video for 'Monsters Ball'


The BUTCHER BABIES have returned with their most abrasive and aggressive offering yet and while unrelenting, it also delivers crushing grooves backed with extremely catchy hooks. The much-anticipated new offering, Take It Like a Man, was recorded in the Hollywood Hills with renowned producer Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, Gojira) and it is set for a Aug 21st release (Century Media Records).

BUTCHER BABIES' striking new music video for “Monsters Ball,” can be viewed now at the link below. Enjoy!

Heidi (vocals): "The moment I spoke with director, Dan Dobi, about the ideas we had for a literal Monsters Ball, he jumped at them and began tossing even more great ideas into the melting pot. We wanted to use the swingy feel of the song to create a jazz type club scene. A Monsters Ball is how we describe the pit. Being an adult who always has and STILL thrives in the pit, I've always seen it as a carnival of monsters. Where it doesn't matter what you look like, where you came from, what you do for a living, your sexual orientation, etc. We're all the same monsters there for the same reason; to rock the fuck out! This song is about the beautiful, positive energy at a metal show. Too many times, mainstream media makes these shows out to be dangerous and evil, but what they don't know is that we are a big family who in that moment will do anything for each other. A family who rocks together, inevitably stays together. That’s our Monster’s Ball."

Carla (vocals): "I always felt that metal music was something that brought all of us misfit kids together. With the lyrics to ‘Monster's Ball,' we wanted to celebrate that and really paint a picture of the moments that we spend together side by side in the mosh pit, letting the music course through our veins and move us."

HENRY (guitars): "Musically the song has a very swingy, fun and energetic feel to it. It's almost something you can dance to. The ballroom vibe seemed perfect for this song and Dan Dobi knocked it out of the park! We had such a blast making this video with all our friends!"

JASON (bass): "This was by far the most fun I have had making a music video. Everyone got express their inner ‘ onster'. Felt very comfortable working with Dan Dobi and his team, and I believe he really understood what we were all aiming for with this one.”

BUTCHER BABIES kick off a massive European touring run on July 7th and then will join GWAR and Battlecross across North America from Aug 25th to Sept 18th.
