Today, innovative rockers – BUTCHER BABIES – release the video for their newest single “Sleeping With The Enemy” which showcases the musical and diversity that Butcher Babies has cultivated over the years. The video for the track is darkly beautiful and artistic, so the band paired with Fashion and Culture magazine, BLACKBOOK to premiere it. It can be found at this location.
American Songwriter in a feature on the band, lauded the new single, saying, “‘Sleeping With The Enemy’ is the best of both old and new Butcher Babies. The turn to melodic vocals is seen executed by Shepherd and co-vocalist Carla Harvey with just enough intermittent screams to give texture and peaks to a song already hardened by chunky, power riffs.”
Carla says, “‘Sleeping With The Enemy’ is one of the most vulnerable songs we’ve ever written. The song is the ultimate “own your own bullshit” song…because the first step in change is always admitting there’s a problem, right?”
Heidi adds, “When face to face with what you presume as your enemy; who is it? Is it you? In ‘Sleeping with the Enemy’ the devil and angel on my shoulders met. This song is about hypocrisy and self realization. We can get so caught up in the rat race of life, as humans we tend to lose track of ourselves and our core values along the way. There comes a point where you look at the perceived problems in your life and realize there is one common denominator; yourself! Whether it’s in the lens you look at life through or an overall attitude, there comes a point where we must turn a negative into a positive. This song is that for me.”
Guitarist Henry Flury adds, “And just when you thought we weren’t going to be heavy anymore… BOOM! This is definitely a song for the stage. Can you sing and circle pit at the same time?”
In 2020, Butcher Babies released “Bottom of A Bottle” and celebrated 10 years as a band by creating and releasing their own signature wine called “Butcher Burgundy”. The new wine is available for purchase at butcherbabiesmerch.com.
“Sleeping With The Enemy” marks the second release from Butcher Babies’ forthcoming EP, which is set for release in mid-2021.
