Le Butcherettes unveil the video for struggle/STRUGGLE (bi). The track is featured off-of their 3 song EP that features the track in three different versions. The song was premiered exclusively today on NPR Alt Latino.
“The struggle is never ending. As a latina woman, the constant battle within a steaming pool of perverted wagging tongues becomes a part of life which on a sadly angled upside only makes for thicker skin… yet none of those struggles can compare to the internal fight of self-versus m/other, m/other versus your world” – says frontwoman, Teresa Suárez Cosío (Teri Gender Bender) when describing the first version of the single.
The video was filmed in Los Angeles and Lancaster and directed by NOUN who also directed the video for their last single spider / WAVES.
Both the ‘struggle/STRUGGLE’ EP and ‘spider/WAVES’ were produced by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Head and The Modern Lovers, who’s previous production credits include, No Out and The Violent Femmes.
The band will be touring with The Flaming Lips this month and will also be playing a select few headline shows in support of their new EP with stops in St. Louis, Toronto, Brooklyn, Nashville, Dallas and El Paso.
