Fresh from their appearance at the Grammys (they missed out by a posthumous win from Chris Cornell) the Fever 333 lads have just released a new music video from their stunning debut album Strength in Numb333rs (our review here).
This time around it’s for the song ‘One Of Us‘ which if you’ve been following their social media pages, you would have seen some behind the scenes action they’d been sharing with fans during production a few weeks back. The song itself is a call out of the corruption and greed within the government and how the band’s followers are now “one of them”, joining their cause to fight for what’s right, especially with the mistreatment of people of colour in the United States as heard in the lyrics: “Another policy to keep you on your knees/Another one in jail another young black male/He kinda look like me”
The thing I love about this song the most is it’s call back to the Rage Against The Machine era of political activism through heavy music. Just before the breakdown, the lyrics of “stand up or die on your knees” repeat over and over again akin to that of RATM‘s “fuck you I won’t do what you tell me” in the classic track ‘Killing In the Name‘.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Fever 333 are the next generation’s RATM and goddamn they’re doing a great job of keeping that spirit alive and well. Make sure to lock them in at Download Festival and the Brisbane sideshow for an explosive show.
