The rampantly raved-about garage-punk trio, Le Butcherettes, released their debut full-length, Sin Sin Sin today. To celebrate the occasion, the group led by charismatic 21-year-old vocalist/guitarist/pianist, Teri Gender Bender, plays a headlining album release show in Los Angeles on Wednesday, May 11th. Shortly thereafter, Le Butcherettes take to the road supporting Deftones and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Please see complete dates below.
Check out “New York” from the new release here.
Teri Gender Bender — a recent transplant to L.A. from Guadalajara, Mexico — gives Le Butcherettes a brazen intensity and playful, hook-laden simplicity that hacks to pieces all forms of pretension and excess. Upon relocating to Los Angeles in late 2010, Teri recruited renowned drummer Gabe Serbian (The Locust) and bassist Jonathan Hischke (Hella, Broken Bells) to round out the lineup.
The band’s songs and wildly cathartic live shows often draw comparisons to Karen O, Patti Smith, Bikini Kill and other female-fronted rock groups. But, there’s a theatricality to Le Butcherettes that brings a further reaching sense of mystery and imagery to the band.
Le Butcherettes’ full length debut, Sin Sin Sin was produced by Omar Rodriguez Lopez, who also plays bass on all of the album’s tracks, and issued the album May 10th, 2011 on Rodriguez Lopez Productions via Sargent House.
