Butcher Babies will perform their 2013 debut, “Goliath,” in full on their upcoming fall tour

Butcher Babies have announced an extensive North American tour in which they’ll be performing their 2013 debut album, “Goliath,” from front to back each night. Fellow female-led bands Infected Rain and Stitched Up Heart will open.

The tour will kick off Aug. 28 at Metal in the Mountains in Pipestem, West Virginia, and run through an Oct. 8 date in at Aftershock in Sacramento, California. View the full roster of upcoming tour dates below.

Butcher Babies have been in the studio, working on their follow-up to 2017’s “Lilith.” The band has already released two new songs off the set, “Bottom of a Bottle” and “Sleeping With the Enemy,” which will appear on the upcoming record.

“Blasting back into the realm of live music is already the thing that I am most excited about in life,” co-frontwoman Heidi Shepherd said in a statement. “Adding in playing our debut album Goliath every night on top of that makes this one of our most explosive tours to date. I’m especially excited to bring our friends in Infected Rain and Stitched Up Heart along for the ride. This will without a doubt be a DO-NOT-MISS tour with some of the fiercest ladies in metal.”

“After almost a year and a half of dark stages, we are so thrilled to be going back out on the road,” added co-frontwoman Carla Harvey. “I cannot wait for that first electric moment in front of a live crowd again, celebrating the return of music together! I expect lots of happy tears in the mosh pit on this run. Making the return even sweeter, we’re bringing along some of our favorite women in metal. This is our first female-fronted tour package in the United States, a display of girl power at its finest!”

Tickets for the newly announced dates are available now via the Butcher Babies’ website. Some tour stops will feature support from Kaleido in place of Stitched Up Heart.
