Le Butcherettes Release A Raw Youth Today; West Coast Tour Underway

LE BUTCHERETTESLe Butcherettes, the captivating El Paso-based, Guadalajara-born trio release A Raw Youth today via Ipecac Recordings
The album, the band’s third release, focuses on “the recurring conflict between minorities (the raw youths) and society: The oppressor and the oppressed” as Le Butcherettes mastermind and front woman Teri Gender Bender explains. A pair of singles: “Shave The Pride”(https://youtu.be/0KWDHLjkzdk ) and “They Fuck You Over” (https://soundcloud.com/ipecacrecordings/they-fuck-you-over ) were shared in advance of release. In what seems to be a theme with Le Butcherettes releases, two guest stars also join the fray: Iggy Pop on “La Uva” and John Frusciante on “My Half.” A Raw Youth was recorded at RLP Studios (The Morgue Portable Disaster Unit) in El Paso with producer Omar Rodríguez-López.
Le Butcherettes spent the summer touring with the Melvins on the Chaos as Usual tour; a pairing that was deemed “a spiritual kinship” (Consequence of Sound), “incredibly eclectic” (Phoenix New Times) and “an absolute blast” (Dallas Observer). The bill birthed one tour only 10-inch and dozens of videos of Gender Bender fronting the Melvins for a cover of Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl” (https://youtu.be/wprzoG9eZnU ).
The band is about to head out on a series of headlining dates, both in the western U.S. and Europe.
