After tiding over fans with a covers EP last fall, Butcher Babies kept the momentum going and just powered through the recording of their sophomore set.

The group just announced that they've finished production on their second full-length album with producer Logan Mader. While the disc is still untitled, the band did state that they are eyeing a fall 2015 release through Century Media Records.

While we have to wait a few months on a new album, that's not the case in terms of seeing them play live. The band will team up with In This Moment beginning April 18 in Montclair, N.J. for a five-week North American trek. Upon a Burning Body and The Nearly Deads will be on board to flesh out the bill.

Co-vocalist Heidi Shepherd states, "This upcoming tour is really special to us. Not only do we get to see so many of our friends that we have accumulated around the country through our music, but it’s also our first chance to play some songs off of the new album. Our fans have been so patient waiting for new music. In true Butcher Babies fashion we never do anything half-assed, so it took a little while. Playing these songs on this tour will be a little treat for our dedicated fan base. Also, to be back out with In This Moment is a huge honor. They have been so supportive of us and they put on an incredible live show. To all the BUTCHER BABIES fans old and new, you’ve inspired us so much throughout the years. After every show, we do a free meet and greet at our merch booth. Be sure to come stop by and say hello. We would be honored to meet you."

Shepherd's vocal cohort Carla Harvey adds, "It is crazy to think that this will be our ninth big national tour since our first big tour in mid 2012. We feel like old road dogs now as we recognize all the truck stop showers and coffee shops all across the states. However, the best thing about touring is seeing all the familiar faces in the crowd. Our fans have become dear friends over the last few years and every night feels like a family reunion at our after show merch booth meet and greets."

And guitarist Henry Flury concludes, "Every time we pass through a city we see more and more faces screaming along to the lyrics to our songs. You guys have no idea how that makes us feel. Now we have a few new face melting surprises in store for you guys and we can't wait to see you sweat it out with us in the pit!"
