If you’ve seen Butcher Babies live, you know that it’s pure aggression and all out energy from the time the band hits the stage. But if you haven’t seen them, the group’s newly released “Igniter” video is a perfect primer.
The clip is primarily performance based as you see quick hitting shots of co-vocalists Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey belting to frenzied audiences as they headbang and hair-flip their way through their hard-hitting performances. The video also showcases some offstage moments, opening with their pre-show huddle and featuring moments of the band members being interviewed, posing for photos, hanging with BabyMetal and toasting some shots. It truly gives the viewer an idea of what their life is like on tour.
“Igniter” is featured on the band’s second full-length album, Take It Like a Man. The disc, which also includes the singles “Monsters Ball” and “Never Go Back,” was released back in August.
Butcher Babies are currently on the road in support of the disc, wrapping up a leg of dates with Nekrogoblikon. After that, the band will team up with Amaranthe and Lullwater for dates that kick off Oct. 29 in Atlanta. See the band’s full touring itinerary here.
