BUTCHER BABIES have released the newest single off their forthcoming EP, “Last Dance.” The track, produced by Matt Good, officially debuts on Friday, April 2nd. “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. You can find the song via butcherbabies.com.
The song is a powerful statement about friendships and support. In the time of Covid – 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 any 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; John, Mikey and Kim.”
The band’s recent livestream, playing their debut album GOLIATH, was successful in many ways. The VIP meet & greet got emotional “people told us what the album meant to them… it was wonderful,” explained Shepherd.
