It sold 3,300 copies in the US during its first week of release and charted at No. 3 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and No. 112 on the Billboard 200.
The Butcher Babies self-released their first EP in 2011. Also, in July 2011, they released a comic book at Comic Con International in San Diego on July 23 and 24th. The comic book was written by Carla Harvey and illustrated by Anthony Winn.
Rock Journalist Keith Valcourt stated on the Butcher Babies: “The Hottest Band in the World” in his review of a show: “The Butcher Babies deliver a loud crashing blend of heavy metal, punk and thrash that recalls Pantera, adding their stage show embodies the horror antics of Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie. Carla and Heidi don’t merely sing: they assault the crowd with a blinding flash of aggression and abuse. And the crowd loves them for it.” They gained a lot of attention from their YouTube video of them performing “Fucking Hostile” by Pantera.
