Longtime BUTCHER BABIES bassist Jason Klein has announced his departure from the band. He will play two final shows with BUTCHER BABIES — on August 1 at Gathering Of The Juggalos in Springville, Indiana and on August 3 at Pain In The Grass in Auburn, Washington — before exiting the group to focus on being a full-time father to his 11-year-old daughter. Klein wrote on Instagram: "Getting to tour the world, playing music with my friends, experiences that could never have happened without BUTCHER BABIES. This is my farewell to a decade of a life that I could only dream of as a kid. I want to thank @carlaharvey @heidithebutcher @henryflury @chasethedrums @chrissywarnerdrums for all the good times and memories! And most of all...I’d like to thank you! The fans! You guys are the ones that kept me going night after night, I thank you all! My obligation now is to be a father to my daughter, and be with her as she grows up. #butherbabies"Co-vocalist Heidi Shepherd shared Jason's post and added in an accompanying message: "My brother is moving on to focus on the most important job in the world. Being an amazing father!!! We love you, Jason. Thank you for a decade of incredible memories. We sure did accomplish a lot together. Now let's go slay these last two fests!!!"Added co-vocalist Carla Harvey: "The night I met @b_b_bassplayer we talked about two things: heavy metal and his daughter. He was helping some band load in and out that night at the HOB in the hopes that he'd get a gig playing bass for them. At the time @heidithebutcher and I were putting together @butcherbabies so when he told me how much he loved CANNIBAL CORPSE, ANTHRAX and VAN HALEN I suggested he play with us instead. The rest is history. Our brother is now hanging up his bass to spend more time with his daughter, but I am beyond grateful for his friendship over the last decade that we have spent making music and touring the world together. Jason you are a stellar musician and even better father, I will miss you so much!! #butcherbabies #jasonklein"BUTCHER BABIES recently spent time in the studio working on their fourth album. The disc will be the follow-up to "Lilith", which was released in October 2017 via Century Media.
