Taking a page from heroes METALLICA and GUNS N' ROSES, Los Angeles breakthrough metal act, BUTCHER BABIES has recorded an EP of cover tunes that will surely please fans of the band, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally. Titled Uncovered, this EP will be released on September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe) and features the following five tracks:
"Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers"
"They're Coming To Take Me Away"
"Don't Give A Fuck"
As a preview of Uncovered, BUTCHER BABIES has posted their cover of "They're Coming To Take Me Away", which you can check out below.

BUTCHER BABIES released their Century Media debut full length, Goliath, last summer and took part in that year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they were a mainstay on the Jagermeister stage and a breakout band of the fest. Following that, they toured the US with the legendary GLENN DANZIG, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and DOWN, plus played on many of America's premier metal festivals - Columbus OH's Rock On The Range and Oklahoma's Rocklahoma, to name a few. It was during this time that BUTCHER BABIES made plans to record some of their favorite tunes. Each band member chose a track, and in the early summer of this year, they entered the studio with producer Logan Mader (DEVILDRIVER, GOJIRA, 5 FINGER DEATH PUNCH) to dissect and "butcher" these five classics, creating something all their own.
Shortly before the release of Uncovered, BUTCHER BABIES will embark on their first headlining run in the US. See below for all upcoming dates.
