Butcher Babies Unleash Colorful Video For ‘Monsters Ball’
Butcher Babies have released a colorfully intense new video for their single “Monsters Ball.” You can watch the clip for the relentless rocker in the player above.
The video, which was directed by Dan Dobi, features the band playing a small club. Co-vocalist Heidi Shepherd said, "We wanted to use the swingy feel of the song to create a jazz type club scene. A 'Monsters Ball' is how we describe the pit. Being an adult who always has and STILL thrives in the pit, I've always seen it as a carnival of monsters, where it doesn't matter what you look like, where you came from, what you do for a living, your sexual orientation, etc.”
She continued, “We're all the same monsters there for the same reason -- to rock the f--k out! This song is about the beautiful, positive energy at a metal show. Too many times, mainstream media makes these shows out to be dangerous and evil, but what they don't know is that we are a big family who in that moment will do anything for each other. A family who rocks together, inevitably stays together. That’s our Monster’s Ball."
Meanwhile, vocalist Carla Harvey revealed, “I always felt that metal music was something that brought all of us misfit kids together. With the lyrics to ‘Monster's Ball,' we wanted to celebrate that and really paint a picture of the moments that we spend together side by side in the mosh pit, letting the music course through our veins and move us."
“Monsters Ball” will be featured on Butcher Babies’ sophomore album Take It Like a Man, which arrives on Aug. 21, via Century Media Records. The effort is available for pre-order now for the special price of $6.66 with each copy autographed by the entire band. Click here to order.
