Butcher Babies have announced a UK and European tour in support of their new album Lilith.

The shows will take place early next year, kicking off at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms on February 20 and wrapping up with a set at Leiden’s Gebr. de Nobel on March 17.

Vocalists Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chase Brickenden have released Pomona (Shit Happens) and Headspin from the album and previously revealed the thinking behind the title.

Harvey said: “When we were thinking of titles for our album, we wanted to find something that embodied sensuality, lust, danger and power. We kept going back to Lilith.

“We researched Lilith and her origins in different cultures and forms and knew that this figure, once feared but now a beautiful, symbolic middle finger to repression, would be a perfect representation of our album.”
