Le Butcherettes stream “They F**k You Over”

Le Butcherettes stream “They F**k You Over," the lead single from their Omar Rodriguez produced Ipecac records release 'A Raw Youth,"

Le Butcherettes are giving fans an early preview of the music from the trio’s forthcoming album, A Raw Youth, available September 18th via Ipecac Recordings with a stream of the song “They F**k You Over.”

“It’s really the story of the band,” Teri Gender Bender said of the new song. “Back in Guadalajara, there was so much corruption and jealousy in the music scene. We got stabbed in the back so many times. It was about how hard it is to start a band and keep true to your vision with everyone trying to hold you back.”

Le Butcherettes have released two albums, their 2011 debut Sin, Sin, Sin and the 2014 release Cry Is For The Flies. Admirer Henry Rollins, in a 2014 interview with the Los Angeles Times said, “She’s a star. It’s like a great character in a movie. You want to know what happens when the movie is over. You want to know the rest of the story.”

The band, rounded out by drummer Chris Common and bass player Jamie Aaron, recorded the album at RLP Studios (The Morgue Portable Disaster Unit) in El Paso, Texas. Omar Rodriguez Lopez once again produced, as he has done for both previous Le Butcherettes’ releases. Guests include Iggy Pop on “La Uva” and John Frusciante on “My Half.”
