Butcher Babies
Help Get The Word Out By Sharing This With Your Friends

The fabulous #SistersWhoSlay, the Butcher Babies have a new video out!

The video features a nod to Nirvana and to Adam West’s Batman in equal measure. The band asked fans to name their super-heroines on their socials. The names Gravemaker (Harvey) and Igniter (Shepherd) were the winning choices!

Co-vocalist, Heidi Shepherd explains of the video “When writing the song “Yorktown”, it was fairly obvious as to what the video was going to look like. A superhero with 9 lives! But, this is Butcher Babies and what is better than one super hero? TWO SUPERHEROES! Offering a nod to female empowerment, when strong females unite, we can take over the world. Our two characters form a bond and promise to defend the residents of Yorktown together. From concept to edit, we had a hand in all aspects of our very own ‘Gotham’. This video was filmed in Orem, UT at my parent’s film studio, Shepherd Grip & Lighting, where the entire family joined forces to bring this idea to life. You can definitely say that this was a family affair. Both of my parents and all of my 5 siblings created the set design, lighting design, ran all the equipment, and took on many roles in front of and behind the camera. We were lucky to snag my brother-in-law, famed VFX artist, Aaron Sorensen as our director. From the all of stunts to the performances, we are so excited to show the world the silly, comic side of Butcher Babies. After all, we all have a little superhero in us waiting to break free!”
