Le Butcherettes was created by vocalist/guitarist Teri Gender Bender. Their live act, featuring 1950s fashions and props such as brooms, feather dusters, and bloody aprons to refer to women being slaves, quickly achieved acclaim in the Mexican underground scene. Teri Gender Bender would also use artificial blood, flour, eggs, meat, and a real pig head on stage.
The band won "Best New Artist" and "Best Punk Record" in the Indie-O Awards 2009 and opened for several great bands like The Dead Weather or Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Le Butcherettes toured the U.S. with Deftones and The Dillinger Escape Plan. They toured Europe with The Mars Volta and North America with Rodriguez-Lopez's new project Antemasque in 2014 and 2015.
