Butcher Babies to Perform Debut Album in Full on Tour


Are we already entering the era of nu-metalcore nostalgia? First Five Finger Death Punch reveal plans to re-record their debut, and now Butcher Babies have announced a tour on which they’ll perform their debut, Goliath, in its entirety.

And it’s not even a big anniversary for Goliath! The album came out in 2013. TOO SOON, BUTCHER BABIES. TOO SOON.

In any case, the set will also include “recent hit singles and new material,” according to a press release. So there’s that.

Says Butcher Baby Heidi Shepherd:

“Blasting back into the realm of live music iss already the thing that I am most excited about in life. Adding in playing our debut album ‘Goliath’ every night on top of that makes this one of our most explosive tours to date. I’m especially excited to bring our friends in Infected Rain and Stitched Up Heart along for the ride. This will without a doubt be a DO-NOT-MISS tour with some of the fiercest ladies in metal!” 

Adds Butcher Baby Carla Harvey:

“After almost a year and a half of dark stages, we are so thrilled to be going back out on the road. I cannot wait for that first electric moment in front of a live crowd again, celebrating the return of music together! I expect lots of happy tears in the mosh pit on this run. Making the return even sweeter, we’re bringing along some of our favorite women in metal. This is our first female fronted tour package in the United States, a display of girl power at its finest!”  

Concludes Butcher Baby Henry Flury:

“We can’t wait to unleash ‘Goliath’ in the stage. Beware kids…we’ve been hibernating. On a scale of 1 to melted faces, get ready to receive an 11.”
