Butcher Babies have released a raunchy, virtual reality-inspired video for their new track Headspin.

It’s the latest song taken from the band’s latest studio album Lilith, which launched last week via Century Media Records.

Vocalists Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chase Brickenden shared the single Pomona (Shit Happens) earlier this month.

Speaking about the album’s title, vocalist Harvey previously revealed: “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.

“The cover art we created with our graphic artist perfectly pulls together the last year we’ve spent working on Lilith. I’ve always loved water themes and there is something terrifying yet calming about the deep sea – submersing yourself in it could be the death of you, yet at the same time it’s cleansing and renewing.

“With this album we dove in fully and drowned ourselves in emotion, sexuality and even turmoil, and let the two headed beast we created has emerged even stronger.”

Butcher Babies are currently on tour across North America. Find details below.
