Guadalajara-born and El Paso based garage punk band Le Butcherettes are excited to announce their signing with iconic punk/metal label Rise Records. In celebration of the news, the band has shared a new single, the pulse pounding “spider/WAVES”. For the new song, the band teamed up with iconic Talking Heads member Jerry Harrison [No Doubt, Violent Femmes, KD Lang] behind the board as producer.
Themes of internal and familial strife hang over the first single “spider/WAVES”. A ticking time bomb of riffs clicks and clacks as her howling falsetto swings towards a searing screech. Appropriately, she dons a Chichimeccan warrior outfit in honor of her grandmother in the accompanying music video directed by award-winning duo Noun.
“Lyrically, it’s like this big delicious spider has its wave,” she elaborates. “In a way, we’re all caught in it. This thing wants to devour as much as it can, but you have to make sure you’re okay. You’re trying to protect yourself from something that wants to get in.”
Le Butcherettes have already spent most of 2018 on the road, with an extensive European tour, and now, the band will be joining Hot Snakes in the US for a run of dates in May.
