American metallers Butcher Babies present a kick-ass music video for their latest single “Yorktown”. Watch it below.
Following “Bottom Of A Bottle” and “Sleeping With The Enemy”, “Yorktown” is the third track taken from band’s upcoming EP, due out in 2021. The song features a guitar solo by Andy James (Five Finger Death Punch).
Carla Harvey on the song: “What the hell is Yorktown, you ask? Well, it’s our very own little Gotham, a world we’ve created wherein two vamps patrol the city at night while stalking each other like prey! The magic happens when our two anti-heroines form an alliance to defeat the seedy Yorktown underbelly.” She continues: “It’s one of my favorite Butcher Babies songs that we’ve written as of late; a true nod to our love for building characters and storytelling over heavy riffs. We scream, we sing…we save Yorktown from impending doom.”
Heidi Shepherd adds: “When writing the song “Yorktown”, it was fairly obvious as to what the video was going to look like. A superhero with nine lives! But this is Butcher Babies, and what is better than one superhero? 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.”
The music video was filmed in Utah at Heidi’s parents’ film studio with help of her siblings. She says: “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 five 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 super hero in us waiting to break free!”
