In the midst of America’s 2017 socio-political upheaval a self-described “bi-racial double agent who’s got a black father and a white mother” – could feel the weight of the divisions. Jason Aalon Butler (ex-letlive) after meeting Travis Barker of blink-182 by chance, he spent the Super Bowl Sunday with the iconic drummer and mutual friend/producer John Feldman. That day, this unholy triumvirate’s conversation inspired the songs that would eventually comprise Fever 333’s 2018 debut. Comprised of vocalist Jason Aalon Butler, drummer Aric Improta (Night Verses) and guitarist Stephen Harrison (ex-The Chariot), the Los Angeles trio lock and load gnashing guitars, guttural beats and brazenly bold bars of a hard-hitting hybrid made up of hip-hop, punk and activism.
Channeling the art of discord, Butler’s creation of something a little dangerous and also subservice; musically and in ethos, every element makes a statement – even the lineup. First making their live debut on July 4, 2017, Fever 333 hijacked the parking lot of infamous L.A. staple, Randy’s Donuts – making their declaration of independence loud and clear.
Bringing their energy and enthusiasm for change to Australia, Fever 333’s local debut will start in Brisbane on Friday March 8 at The Brightside – before heading on to play Download Festival in both Sydney and Melbourne pouring out a radical, left-leaning and unapologetic belief for change through emotionally and politically charged sonic genius.
