Butcher Babies Release Video For ‘Igniter’ – Shot at Download

Butcher Babies were one of my personal highlights at Download Festival 2015  Not only did I get to meet them, I got to interview them and shoot their set and it was awesome to say the least.

The BUTCHER BABIES released their latest full-length offering, Take It Like a Man. earlier this year on Century Media Records. The video for ‘Igniter’ perfectly captures the frenetic, high-energy of their amazing live show. The video was shot at Download and I even spotted myself taking photographs from the photo pit whilst the video was being shot 🙂  I’m in the video at around 2:10

Heidi Shepherd (vocals) states: “We’ve all been in that different state of consciousness where rage over takes over your body and mind. ‘Igniter’ is about these emotions and about that last straw that breaks you. We were so lucky as to film this video during our live performance at The Download Festival, Metal Hammer Boat and The Metal Hammer Golden God Awards. As it shows our intense live energy on the stage, it also shows our goofy off stage personalities.”

Carla Harvey further adds: “’Igniter’ is a song about the anger and frustration that we can let consume and even destroy us at times. When we first started Butcher Babies, I was in a much darker place and often let that rage overtake me, but after 6 years of having a healthy outlet for those feelings through our music, I’m a completely different person. I love that the video for Igniter, shot while we toured the UK this summer, shows a juxtaposition of on stage rage and our off stage fun personalities. It speaks volumes to the release that music provides not only for the listener, but the creators.”

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
