Following the release of their debut album, Goliath, the Butcher Babies have been working hard. This workrate is obviously beginning to pay off, as they have just been announced as joining the bill of Australia‘s Soundwave Festival.
“We’re doing so many crazy things right now”, says Heidi. “We’re writing our next album, we’re planning our headline tour, putting production together, doing all sorts of fun stuff. [Soundwave] was just an added bonus to make this month really rad”.
“We have a lot of friends that have done the festival and it’s always something that is so positively talked about. Everyone says you’re gonna be treated like gods!” she continues. “Everyone’s gone through roughing it in the touring stages… this is one festival that everyone talks about as being top notch, something that you have to experience in your music career, and kind of a staple in your career.”
The band say they were immediately treated to some Aussie hospitality as soon as they were announced. Heidi says she felt instantly “welcomed” by Soundwave fans, while guitarist Henry says he was “overwhelmed” by the response.
