I wonder who got a sweeter contract — Watain, who just signed to Century Media and have been one of underground metal’s most inspiring artists, or Butcher Babies, a band fronted by two naked chicks?
I’m sure we all know the answer to that one.
The Butcher Babies have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records.
“Fronted by Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd – named two of the year’s ‘Hottest Women In Rock’ by Revolver Magazine – the blood-splattered band left their mark on the United Kingdom in June, appearing on the Download festival and supporting Anthrax in Cardiff. They returned to America as direct support for Otep in fall, and are wrapping up their first headlining tour tonight in front of a hometown crowd at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip,” a press release says.
“Century Media has been a huge supporter of Butcher Babies for a long time, and it feels natural to join their tight knit family,” said the band of their signing. “It’s an honor for us to be on a roster amongst many other bands that have inspired us for so long. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of this union.”
The band are currently at work on their full-length debut, which is slated for worldwide release in summer 2013.
