Back in March The Fever 333 released their debut Made An America EP and it was a fuckin great, thought-provoking release blend of hardcore punk with a mainstream sound and a purpose (our review here). Frontman Jason Aalon Butler also explained during his co-hosting duties on our podcast Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall his latest music endeavour is a band for the people, especially people of colour who have it rough in the United States because of the colour of their skin and that the music they make is the soundtrack for the those struggling with those issues in their everyday life.
Well fast forward to now and the band have kept the conversation going with the new music video for the EP’s title track ‘Made An America‘ which shows Butler, his bandmate Stephen Harrison stuck in a glass cage with other people of colour and different nationalities working and performing for the elegantly dress caucasians on the outside.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, like Rage Against The Machine before them, The Fever 333 are certainly leaving their mark and message on the music industry and it is exceptional to watch them as a fan kill it with every idea and step forward. Side note, if you haven’t heard their song about America’s fucked up gun laws, you need to check out ‘Trigger‘ too.
Here’s hoping they make their debut in Australia for Download Festival as that would fuckin rule. They killed it at the UK festival this year so you never know what could happen between now and March 2019…
