Taking a page from heroes METALLICA and GUNS N' ROSES, Los Angeles breakthrough metal act, BUTCHER BABIES, recently released an EP of cover tunes, titled Uncovered, and are currently touring North America in support of it. Today, the band has debuted a new video for their version of "They're Coming To Take Me Away", originally recorded by NAPOLEON XIV. Produced by Veva Entertainment.
BUTCHER BABIES' Heidi Shepherd (vocals) comments: "As kids, we always loved this creepy, quirky song around Halloween time. So, we thought it would be perfect to ring in the Halloween season with this video reminiscent of old slasher films. Enjoy!"

BUTCHER BABIES released their Century Media debut full length, Goliath, last summer and took part in that year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they were a mainstay on the Jagermeister stage and a breakout band of the fest. Following that, they toured the US with the legendary GLENN DANZIG, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and DOWN, plus played on many of America's premier metal festivals - Columbus OH's "Rock on the Range" and Oklahoma's "Rocklahoma", to name a few. It was during this time that BUTCHER BABIES made plans to record some of their favorite tunes. Each band member chose a track, and in the early summer of this year, they entered the studio with producer Logan Mader (DEVILDRIVER, GOJIRA, 5 FINGER DEATH PUNCH) to dissect and "butcher" these five classics, creating something all their own.
In support of Uncovered, BUTCHER BABIES are currently wrapping up their first North American headlining tour; in December/January, the band will be back on the road again to support BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and HATEBREED on another US trek. See below for all upcoming dates.
