BUTCHER BABIES have released their latest single, “Last Dance”. The song was produced and co-written by Matt Good (FROM FIRST TO LAST). It is the fourth taste of the band’s forthcoming EP, tentatively due later this year. BUTCHER BABIES previously released the tracks “Bottom Of A Bottle”, “Sleeping With The Enemy” and “Yorktown”, all of which are also expected to appear on the EP.

“Last Dance” shows off the clean vocal prowess of frontwomen Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd while retaining the musical heaviness for which the band is known. It is a powerful statement about friendships and support. In the time of COVID-19, this is particularly poignant: “You’re not in my hemisphere / So I’ll wait another year / Wish you could see me now / Through all the ups and downs / I know I’m better because of you“.

While writing ‘Last Dance’, I was brought back to a memory in college where a few of my friends and I used to drive into the canyon in southern Utah, lay on the hoods of our cars and stare up into the stars,” explains Shepherd. “We would discuss the different paths that we wanted to take in life. As young adults, we dreamed about the future. I haven’t seen most of those friends in over a decade, and I often wonder if those nights dreaming under the stars ever cross their minds. I look back at that memory fondly as those friends were so supportive in [anything]and everything we each put our minds to. They were some of the first people to support me in the hopes and dreams of music. This song, for me, was about recreating that moment all these years later. This is an ode to you; JohnMikey and Kim.”

BUTCHER BABIES‘ latest album, 2017’s “Lilith”, was produced by Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLANSEPULTURASUICIDE SILENCE) and marked BUTCHER BABIES‘ recording debut with drummer Chase Brickenden, who replaced Chris Warner in 2016.

In July 2019, longtime BUTCHER BABIES bassist Jason Klein announced his departure from the band. He has since been replaced by Ricky Bonazza.
