“Every note you hear, we sing.”
Butcher Babies vocalist Heidi Shepherd talked about the band’s approach to their latest and third studio album “Lilith,” telling Metal Discovery:
“One thing that I think was really cool about this album is that we took a year and a half to write it, write and record, and you can really hear how much we’ve practiced these songs.
“Every note you hear, we sing. There’s no Auto-Tune, there’s no pitch shifting – none of that shit. It’s all drums, all real guitars, even the tambourines, shakers and everything… all real. Piano… real. Everything’s real.
“And I think that that’s how you get that live sound. Our producer that we worked with, Steve Evetts, he was so adamant about, ‘I want this to sound like you. I don’t want it to be perfect, but I want it to be you.’
“And so you hear things with attitude in ’em. I feel like so many times nowadays that producers will look for that perfect note, that perfect sound…”
Further discussing the record, Carla Harvey said:
“I think that, naturally, after we’ve been a band for eight years, there’s growth and that causes an evolution. If there’s not, you’re doing something wrong.
“We’ve all grown tremendously as musicians throughout the last eight years and we’ve grown tremendously in the way we write together. And the unplanned-yet-planned part was a new drummer.
“We didn’t want to have a new member change – we’ve never had a member change – but life happens, so we have a wonderful new drummer [Chase Brickenden], who also added a tremendous amount of growth to our sound and we couldn’t be happier.”
“Lilith” was released in October 2017, you can check out the title track below.
