Le Butcherettes to Open for the Melvins at the Double Door

LE BUTCHERETTES STREAM “THEY F**K YOU OVER” FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM, A RAW YOUTH

SONG PREMIERED SUNDAY NIGHT VIA BBC RADIO ONE’S
ROCK SHOW WITH DANIEL CARTER
 
Buford, Wyo., June 30, 2015 – Le Butcherettes are giving fans an early preview of the music from the trio’s forthcoming album, A Raw Youth (Sept. 18, Ipecac Recordings), with a stream of the song “They F**k You Over” (http://bit.ly/1LREGD6).  The song premiered on Sunday via BBC Radio One’s Rock Show with Daniel Carter.

“It’s really the story of the band,” Teri Gender Bender said of the new song. “Back in Guadalajara, there was so much corruption and jealousy in the music scene. We got stabbed in the back so many times. It was about how hard it is to start a band and keep true to your vision with everyone trying to hold you back.”

Le Butcherettes have released two albums, their 2011 debut Sin, Sin, Sin and the 2014 offering Cry Is For The Flies.  Gender Bender “has a tremendous gift for capturing feelings and emotional processes that are difficult to narrate,” said NPR in a 2014 feature. The LA Weekly dubbed her the “most volatile woman in rock” and the Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot proclaimed her a “breakout star.” Admirer Henry Rollins, in a 2014 interview with the Los Angeles Times said, “She’s a star. It’s like a great character in a movie.  You want to know what happens when the movie is over. You want to know the rest of the story.”

The band, rounded out by drummer Chris Common and bass player Jamie Aaron, recorded the album at RLP Studios (The Morgue Portable Disaster Unit) in El Paso, Texas.  Omar Rodriguez Lopez once again produced, as he has done for both previous Le Butcherettes’ releases.  Guests include Iggy Pop on “La Uva” and John Frusciante on “My Half.”
