Le Butcherettes “A Raw Youth” Out Now
The album, the band’s third release, focuses on “the recurring conflict between minorities (the raw youths) and society: The oppressor and the oppressed” as Le Butcherettes’ mastermind and front woman Teri Gender Bender explains. A pair of singles: “Shave The Pride” (https://youtu.be/0KWDHLjkzdk) and “They Fuck You Over” (https://soundcloud.com/ipecacrecordings/they-fuck-you-over) were shared in advance of release. In what seems to be a theme with Le Butcherettes’ releases, two guest stars also join the fray: Iggy Pop on “La Uva” and John Frusciante on “My Half.” A Raw Youth was recorded at RLP Studios (The Morgue Portable Disaster Unit) in El Paso with producer Omar Rodriguez Lopez.
Le Butcherettes is Teri Gender Bender (vocals/guitar/keyboards), Chris Common (drums) and Jamie Aaron Aux (bass). Buy the new album now at the Ipecac Webstore http://bit.ly/1JmtaCP or iTunes: http://hyperurl.co/cfvgxi.

Le Butcherettes Premiere new Song “Shave the Pride” via NPR; Reveal A Raw Youth Album Cover
Le Butcherettes, who are in the midst of the Chaos As Usualtour with the Melvins, have debuted “Shave The Pride” via NPR (http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2015/07/14/421138241/song-premiere-le-butcherettes-shave-the-pride). The song comes from the Mexican trio’s forthcoming album, A Raw Youth (Sept. 18, Ipecac Recordings). The track, which Teri Gender Bender said was originally titled Pogonophobia, the fear of beards, is a commentary on societal apathy. “The outrage and frustration are this time directed in particular to society’s ‘beard’, explains Gender Bender. “The beard symbolizes our unwillingness to view all perceptions of the story, empathy, angles, life… hiding behind the mass… mass media, laziness, etc.”

The band, which hails from Sheffield, formed in 2005, taking their name from the film L.A. Confidential.

Pitchfork said singer Eva Spence is, “equally comfortable singing in a glassy, ethereal coo and a glasses-shattering screech.”

A little delay...
It seems that crazy weather that hit the East coast the past few weeks, closed down the production plants for several days and delayed the Faith No More Superhero seven-inch just a bit. It will now be in stores on Monday March 23rd.
We truly appreciate your support and understanding!
