Metal rockers, Butcher Babies, share their new music video for their track, “Bottom of a Bottle,” out today.
The video features footage filmed over the last decade or so. The visual showcases footage that fans will excite fans including BB on tour, recording, partying, and just enjoying life as a band.
This song is a departure from the band’s normal, extreme metal sound, but borrows certain elements of that signature sound to create something different, with more depth, that creates a breath of fresh air for the fans.
Heidi Shepherd told Alternative Press, “The way I see it, there’s nothing like sitting with your best friend and spewing your wildest hopes and dreams over some drinks. Heck, that’s how Carla and I decided to go all-in on this roller coaster. There are those moments where you just need someone to talk to, whether it’s your best friend, your family, or that guy at the end of the bar,” she explains. “During the writing process, I was feeling particularly lonely. In a way, stuck. I think we all were. We were having a hard time feeling motivated or inspired. So we sat down, poured a drink, and watched the sun go down. In that exact moment, with my best friends, that’s all I needed, the inspiration was right with me. I started pouring my emotions onto paper and voilà! A song was born.”
Co-frontwoman Carla Harvey continues, “Pain and hurt are inevitable in life, and sometimes it’s you who hurts you, and that’s the absolute worst and calls for the most extreme reaction, in this case guzzling some whiskey. . When it comes to ‘Bottom Of A Bottle,’ I think the pain stemmed more from a time when all of us in the band were feeling like we didn’t know what was next for Butcher Babies. It felt like our career was in a weird limbo, and that it could all implode at any moment. I think we’re over that melancholy hump… But hey, we’ll still drink about it!”
The new single marks the first release from Butcher Babies‘ forthcoming EP, which is set for release in mid-2021.
