Butcher Babies have released a music video for their new single “Monsters Ball”. Vocalist Heidi Shepherd said of the clip:

“The moment I spoke with director, Dan Dobi, about the ideas we had for a literal Monsters Ball, he jumped at them and began tossing even more great ideas into the melting pot. We wanted to use the swingy feel of the song to create a jazz type club scene. A Monsters Ball is how we describe the pit.

Being an adult who always has and STILL thrives in the pit, I’ve always seen it as a carnival of monsters. Where it doesn’t matter what you look like, where you came from, what you do for a living, your sexual orientation, etc. We’re all the same monsters there for the same reason; to rock the fuck out! This song is about the beautiful, positive energy at a metal show.

Too many times, mainstream media makes these shows out to be dangerous and evil, but what they don’t know is that we are a big family who in that moment will do anything for each other. A family who rocks together, inevitably stays together. That’s our Monsters Ball.”

The song is off the band’s forthcoming sophomore effort Take It Like A Man, out August 21st on Century Media. The effort is now available for pre-order here.
