Butcher Babies Unleash Chaotic New Song ‘Pomona (S–t Happens)’
"Lilith" has some company! Butcher Babies are making sure their fans have a well rounded taste of what to expect from their Lilith album by unleashing another song prior to the album's street date. Take a listen to "Pomona (S--t Happens)" in the Spotify player at the bottom of this post.
Butcher Babies have already released the title track, with the video premiering right here at Loudwire, as well as the anthemic rocker "Headspin," and the addition of "Pomona (S--t Happens)" just enhances the idea that this will be one of the band's most energetic sets to date. Starting with commanding guitars and a speedy drum fill, the song enters a chaotic state with a relentless trade-off assault from vocalists Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey. If you like your expletives, the ladies turn them into chant-along moments within the song. Eventually the frenetic pace stops long enough for a sludgy breakdown, but there's one last burst of energy as the group races to the song's finale.
Speaking about the album's title, Harvey stated, “When we were thinking of titles for our album, we wanted to find something that embodied sensuality, lust, danger and power. We kept going back to Lilith. We researched Lilith and her origins in different cultures and forms and knew that this figure, once feared but now a beautiful, symbolic middle finger to repression, would be a perfect representation of our album. The cover art we created with our graphic artist perfectly pulls together the last year we’ve spent working on Lilith. I’ve always loved water themes and there is something terrifying yet calming about the deep sea; submersing yourself in it could be the death of you, yet at the same time it’s cleansing and renewing. With this album we dove in fully and drowned ourselves in emotion, sexuality and even turmoil, and let the two headed beast we created has emerged even stronger.”
Fans will get a chance to see that "emotion, sexuality and turmoil" on display as Butcher Babies are touring well into December. A majority of their fall touring finds them paired up with Hollywood Undead. You can see their dates listed here. And keep an eye out for the band putting in an appearance at the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards taking place Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the Novo in Downtown Los Angeles.
