Le Butcherettes's A Raw Youth features the band's most straightforward sound yet. Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, the twelve songs on the record hit heavy and manifest within you long after the record is over. The album features guest appearances from Iggy Pop and John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers). Thanks in part to front-woman, Teri Gender Bender’s highly personal and relevant lyrics, the album has received much critical acclaim. Consequence of Sound praises the record, noting that A Raw Youth, “marks Le Butcherettes’ triumphant entrance to the mainstream rock arena, accomplished with no compromise to their identity.” All Music adds, “There is no band like out there like Le Butcherettes and A Raw Youth proves it.” A Raw Youth was released on September 18th, 2015 via Mike Patton's (Faith No More) label Ipecac.


Le Butcherettes formed out of Guadalajara, Mexico in 2007 by vocalist, guitarist, Teri Gender Bender. In 2008, the band released their Kiss & Kill EP and by 2009, the band won "Best New Artist" and "Best Punk Record" at the Indie-O Awards. In 2001, the band teamed up with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At The Drive-In / Mars Volta for their debut LP, Sin Sin Sin. Their sophomore release, 2014's Cry Is For The Flies features appearances from Henry Rollins and Shirley Manson. That album also won "Best Punk Record" by IMAS.


Le Butcherettes are Teri Gener Bender (vocals, guitar, keys), Pepe Chuy Salazar (drums) and Riko Rodriguez-López (bass, synths)

If you are thinking of taking Sunday night off to catch up on sleep, sobriety or summertime sex, then forget about it. It may prove to be a much nobler thing indeed to head on over to Launchpad (618 Central SW) for one of the most rocked out shows of the season. Get this: Le Butcherettes will be making an appearance—and presumably getting down to their heavy Guadalajara sound—along with local cultural treasures Leeches of Lore and Prism Bitch. In a show that may very well prove to be the most memorable recital of the spring of 2017, Teri Gender Bender and cohorts Pepe Chuy Salazar and Riko Rodríguez-López are touring their new album around the states. The work is called A Raw Youth and features several rock notables (including John Frusciante) embellishing and illuminating Gender Bender's peculiar punk, confessional anthemics. The result is a deadly and deconstructed vision of hard rock that is fearless in its quest to break boundaries as it adheres to a brutally honest vision of the band and the world around them—circling, screaming and gesticulating wildly through sounds that are as fashionable as they are freaky. This event is also yet another opportunity to witness one of Burque's great bands, Leeches of Lore, before they disappear into the mists of time. Prism Bitch, an Albuquerque supergroup that counts totally fine and fantastic bassist Lauren Poole and vocalist Lilah Rose amongst its members, opens this 21+, $12 gig with grungy goodness and grooviness. Be there by 9pm if you want to hear it all come apart and then re-appear like some kinda musical magic, dudes.
