Butcher Babies are kicking off 2016 playing primary support to Cradle of Filth on the band’s North American tour, but pretty soon they’ll be stepping up to be the headliner. As soon as their current run concludes, they’ll start a string of dates in March playing full sets for fans.
The band, promoting their latest album Take It Like a Man, will thrill as they rock stages as the headliners beginning March 10 in Pittsburgh. The quick trek will take the band along the East Coast before cutting across the Midwest to conclude March 20 in Scottsdale, Ariz. See the full run of dates below.
During a recent chat with Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez, co-vocalist Heidi Shepherd revealed that there are few “off” nights for the group. She explained, “The second that first note hits, it’s just – there’s something inside of you and to use the word ignite. You just become an animal and you step on that stage and it’s your playground. You have 45 minutes to make that stage yours and there’s no better feeling than looking out in the crowd, seeing their faces. I think that has a lot to do with it too, is looking out and seeing these people singing along. Even if you’re having a bunk day, or you’re tired, you see that and you’re immediately energized.”
Guitarist Henry Flury added, “You see people absolutely losing their minds out there. You can’t help but think, ‘OK, alright’ and you feed off that. This is fun, because they do. They lose their minds.”
