The Los Angeles-based, theatrical thrash metal outfit Butcher Babies are thrilled to be a part of the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

The band, which includes singers Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, Henry Flury on guitar, Jason Klein on base and Chrissy Warner on drums, offered a taste of what they will be bringing this summer when they played a set at the Mayhem Fest press conference this week in Los Angeles at the famed Whisky a Go Go. Flashy and ferocious, Noisecreep thinks Butcher Babies are a great addition to the tour and no doubt will make a lot of new fans this summer.

Noisecreep had a chance to hang backstage with the entire band who talked about Mayhem Fest as well as what it was like to recently tour with one of their musical heroes, Marilyn Manson. They also shared with us an intriguing moment that took place this past Super Bowl Sunday. Enjoy.
