Mexican Punk trio Le Butcherettes take to the studio for their third album, this time enlisting the powers of legendary Stooge, Iggy Pop and former Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist, John Frusciante. The album will be called ‘A Raw Youth’ and will drop on the 18th of September through Ipecac Recordings. Like the bands previous two efforts; 2011’s ‘Sin Sin Sin’ and 2014’s ‘Cry Is For The Flies’, the album will be produced by ex-Mars Volta bandleader Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.
Le Butcherettes first crashed onto the Indie-Punk scene with their debut EP ‘Kiss & Kill’ and have since then garnered an increasing fanbase and critical praise not only for their unrelenting material, but their outlandish live performances.
Leading up to the release of the album, the band have just hit the road on a tour of the United States with Punk Rock institution the Melvins.
