Le Butcherettes Release Latest Video For New Single

After spending the last month touring throughout Europe in support of their latest release, bi/MENTAL Le Butcherettes return to the U.S. The band also releases a new video for the schizophrenic barrage of mother/HOLDS feat. Alice Bag uniting two generations of disruptive femme punk rock goddesses.

Watch Here:

The video was shot in Los Angeles, CA and directed by CocoVera: Alejandra Robles-Luna (Le Butcherettes) and Janelle Obert (Stars at Night). "The concept that we wanted to illustrate is the complexity of a relationship between mother and daughter through the use of different abstract references, such as the umbilical cord that Teri tried to cut, Alice sitting in a school desk while Teri appears dressed as a cow, the screams and fights in the table, etc.," comments Alejandra Robles-Luna.

Teri has previously spoken about her personal struggles with her own mother and the new video will give you a first look into the artists personal life. "mother/HOLDS is an ode to the eternal bound between mother and daughter, despite how volatile and erratic the relationship may be. Sometimes the umbilical cord is never truly cut off. Sometimes the mother's milk is filled with panic too. It was such an honor to be able to work with some of my best friends on this music video, Alice Bag and Alejandra Robles-Luna and Janelle Obert, not only did are they great human beings but such thrilling artists. By the end of the filming shoot on set the experience helped me find a release of tension I've been craving for so long," explains Teresa Suárez Cosío, Le Butcherettes frontwoman.

The iconic Latina punk rock feminist and activist, Alice Bag has been a longtime friend and fan of Le Butcherettes and previously joined the band on-stage at their show in Los Angeles in February to perform mother/HOLDS live for the first time. "Somewhere deep down in our psyches, many of us have had moments when the urge to metaphorically kill our mothers has bubbled up to the surface, times when the unthinkable taboo of matricide is weighed against independence and it feels like a choice between mommy or me. When we were recording this song, I was imagining the long, difficult and painful task of severing the invisible umbilical cord that tightens uncomfortably as we grow into self-reliance," states Alice Bag

Le Butcherettes-Teri Gender Bender (vocals/guitar/piano), Alejandra Robles Luna (drums), Rikardo Rodríguez-López (guitars) and Marfred Rodríguez-López (bass).
