Butcher Babies' Heidi Shepherd thanks naysayers for giving her a 'kick in the ass'


Butcher Babies singer Heidi Shepherd and guitarist Henry Flury were recently interviewed by Heavy Metal Artwork at Download Festival 2015, you can read some excerpts below.

About the endless amount of online hate that has been directed at the Butcher Babies since the release of debut album, "Goliath", Heidi said: "The naysayers are the ones that push me the hardest. I was always that kid who... I had this teacher in junion high that told my mom that I would never be successful at something. Like, what a jerk! Right?! And so I was, like, 'Yeah. Fuck that!' And I so I got great grades. I was an athlete. Sometimes people are, like, 'Oh, no. You're too short to high jump.'... People who tell me 'no,' I'm going to do it. So thank you to the naysayers."

Heidi said that she has used negative motivation to make a positive impact on her life.
Heidi said: "You have to. As a human, you have to. We all have negativity so much around in our lives, and to take it as a kick in the ass, to light a fire under your ass instead of letting it get you down. I think that's great. I think a lot of people should learn to do that. A lot more would be accomplished in the world if people learned to do that."
