Butcher Babies Exploring Inner Demons in ‘Magnolia Blvd.’ Video
After giving fans a behind-the-scenes preview of the video for ‘Magnolia Blvd.,’ Butcher Babies have now unveiled the entire clip via Revolver (watch above). The band also did an hour-long video chat last night that’s archived here.
The song ‘Magnolia Blvd.’ is described as being about the demons that co-exist around us all, and the video certainly reflects that. It intersperses performance footage of Butcher Babies with scenes of a man literally and figuratively battling his alter-ego.
The song is from Butcher Babies debut album ‘Goliath,’ which was released in July. In a recent interview, vocalist Heidi Shepherd talked about the album. “The great thing about ‘Goliath’ is that it’s very diverse,” she said. “There’s something for everybody, and we’re that kind of band. We all come from different metal backgrounds, and you can hear all of those influences on the record; every single one of us has our voice on the record, so-to-say.”
“For us, we’re very happy with it,” Shepherd continues. “We came out with a very dynamic album, and it’s real. It’s who we are. Another great thing about ‘Goliath’ is that you can really hear the evolution of the band.”
Butcher Babies spent much of the summer as part of the Mayhem Festival, and have more touring lined up. On Sept. 14 they will be part of the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival in Sacramento. The two-day festival, which is also on Sept. 15, features numerous bands including Avenged Sevenfold, P.O.D., Papa Roach, Megadeth, Korn, and Buckcherry.
