Le Butcherettes just released a personal and powerful album, Bi/Mental, out today on Rise Records. They’re also touring in support of the new album.

“We all have two extremities,” exclaims Teri Gender Bender, the band’s vocalist, in a press release. “Black and white are on opposite sides. When I was little, I had a family. Now that I’m older, it’s fallen apart by conflict, emotional corruption, blackmail, and sickness. What does that mean? What does it do to us? We’re always battling with what I like to call, ‘The Other.’ When things aren’t right with your roots, you feel like you’re on the edge of disconnection. You start doubting yourself. They were the roots of my everything… but I’m not that little girl anymore. I have to start making room for myself. I can’t let this torment me. The pendulum swings back and forth. Reason will be lost and gained again. That’s bi/MENTAL. Now that I think about all of this, it makes sense I came up with the name in the shower.”
