Fever 333 return with new line up, new single, and new tour dates
Official press release:
Los Angeles' Grammy-nominated and genre-bending rock outfit Fever 333 have returned with "$wing", their first studio single in three years, now available on all streaming platforms.
"$wing" expands upon the band's signature blend of rapid-fire rap cadences and visceral punk expression, coupled with frontman Jason Aalon Butler's socially conscious lyrics — this time taking aim at the sports industry's historical exploitation of people of color and the fight for agency and autonomy. Butler paints an articulate, focused picture without sacrificing venomous reproach and unbridled aggression.
Frontman Jason Butler shared the following:
In a system that exploits the aforementioned instruments of power (the people) for financial and political advancement, we must collectively understand and redirect the dynamic once we realize that we are not powerless against it. "$wing" is a sonic reminder that you are the power that they seek and you are the resource they need
The new music comes on the heels of the debut of their powerful new lineup and a host of high-octane live performances. The new lineup features Butler alongside Thomas Pridgen (The Mars Volta, Thundercat, Trash Talk) on drums, viral bass virtuoso April Kae, and guitarist Brandon Davis.
Commenting on the new line up Butler added the following:
This new era of FEVER 333 is beyond even what I could have imagined. The talent, the funk, the passion, and the respect for this project April, Thomas, and Brandon have already delivered have shown me, once again, that this project is something more than a band on stage
Ushering a return to their ceremonial-like "functions" with a house party in Butler's hometown of South Central Los Angeles recently, FEVER 333 have since indoctrinated festival crowds at the highly-publicized Las Vegas festival Sick New World and are now gearing up for a string of European dates and festival appearances — including Germany's Rock Am Ring/Park, Hellfest France and the UK's lauded Download Festival.
