US metallers Butcher Babies are back with a brand new single “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby” inspired by DC Comics’ character Lobo. Listen to the groovy track featuring Craig Mabbit of Escape The Fate below.
Following “Bottom Of A Bottle”, “Sleeping With The Enemy”, “Yorktown” and “Last Dance”, the band has added yet another piece to their 2020/2021 singles collection, which should result in a self-released EP scheduled for release later this year. “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby” is inspired by the DC’s intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo and features guest vocals by Escape The Fate and The Dead Rabbitts’ Craig Mabbit. With this track, the band kicks off their US headliner tour with special guests Infected Rain, Stitched Up Heart and Kaleido.
“I can’t think of a better song to release the day before we hit the road on our first tour in over two years,” says vocalist Carla Harvey. “It’s killin’ time, baby…in more ways than one!! As a lifelong comic book aficionado, it was so much fun to write a song based on one of my favorite characters, the bounty huntin’ space cowboy himself, Lobo. When Heidi and I were penning the lyrics we thought, are we really writing a song about a Bastitch on a Spaz Frag? Hell yes, because just like Lobo, we like a good time.” She adds: “It was also a cool new experience for us to throw another singer in the mix for this one! Craig Mabbit’s screams add another level to this banger…enjoy!”
“We are fraggin’ stoked to bring to you our latest banger, ‘It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!’ inspired by the Main Man himself, Lobo!” comments Carla’s co-vocalist Heidi Shepherd. “This bounty hunter, biker has a way of stealing even the blackest of hearts. Between breaking legs and breaking hearts, Lobo embodies the Heavy Metal attitude we all need in 2021! We were so lucky to have our buddy, the very talented, Craig Mabbitt from Escape The Fate and Dead Rabbits, join us in this jam! Our incredible producer, Matt Good, brought this comic-themed dream to life and we CAN NOT wait for you to hear it and then rock it LIVE in the pit!!”
