"Sin Sin Sin is absolutely necessary and essential." 4/4 stars -- WBEZ, Jim DeRogatis

"They've created an album that both lives up to the legend of the live performance and also informs it. Imagine the innovation of the Locust infused into pop songs that clock in past one minute with a frontwoman who doesn't give a shit if you like her politics." -- Bust Magazine

"Down, dirty and dingy, Le Butcherettes are the kind of band that you'd find carousing at the dirty end of a dive bar at four a.m. on a Monday." -- Rolling Stone 
"Her voice is a dexterous thing, as she knows how to shade a yell with hints of scorn, sarcasm, slyness or whatever the moment calls for. Her rhythm section does plenty of heavy lifting as well, opening up the floor to let Suar├ęz bounce, run and level all sorts of abuse on her guitar. Before all is said and done, she punctuates the set to a close with a monstrous howl and topples onto a photographer.." -- LA Times

The rampantly raved-about garage-punk trio Le Butcherettes announce a slew of shows for the Fall, including support dates with Iggy & The Stooges and the Flaming Lips, as well as the band's first headlining shows on the East Coast and Chicago. The band will also perform at this year's  Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX on November 6th. Please see complete dates below. 

Le Butcherettes' critically-praised debut album Sin Sin Sin is available to STREAM HERE. Check out MP3s for other album tracks, "Henry Don't Got Love" HERE and "New York" HERE.

Teri Gender Bender -- a recent transplant to L.A. from Guadalajara, Mexico -- gives Le Butcherettes a brazen intensity and playful, hook-laden simplicity that hacks to pieces all forms of pretension and excess. Upon relocating to Los Angeles in late 2010, Teri recruited renowned drummer Gabe Serbian (The Locust) and bassist Jonathan Hischke (Hella, Broken Bells) to round out the lineup.

The band's songs and wildly cathartic live shows often draw comparisons to Karen O, Patti Smith Bikini Kill and other female-fronted rock groups. But, there's a theatricality to Le Butcherettes that brings a further reaching sense of mystery and imagery to the band. For more on the band's impressive back story, see the complete bio HERE

Le Butcherettes' full length debut, Sin Sin Sin was produced by Omar Rodriguez Lopez, who also plays bass on all of the album's tracks, and issued the album May 10th, 2011 on Rodriguez Lopez Productions via Sargent House
