[DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL] Interview with Jason Aalon Butler (The Fever 333)

STM’s Casper had another in-depth chat with FEVER 333 frontman Jason Aalon Butler this time about their album STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS and the very REAL importance of having rock music festivals in Australia such as DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL!

Grammy nominated activists FEVER 333 have shared an official music video for One Of Us, which is featured on their acclaimed Roadrunner/333 Wreckords Crew debut LP, Strength In Numb333rs available HERE . The video, which is directed by FEVER 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler and Djay Brauner, sees the band demonstrating alongside allies on the streets of downtown Los Angeles as they march towards City Hall. The video, which features fans holding personalized protest signs, was filmed just days after FEVER 333 celebrated the release of Strength In Numb333rs by marching alongside the United Teachers of Los Angeles in support of their strike.

Recently profiled by The Los Angeles Times and named one of 17 Alternative & Indie Breakouts For 2019 by Billboard,  FEVER 333 are currently on the road in North America supporting Bring Me The Horizon on their global First Love tour. The band will then embark on a series of global festival performances including Download Australia & U.K., Lollapalooza Argentina, Brazil & Chile, North America’s Sonic Temple Festival and more.

Comprised of vocalist Jason Aalon Butler (ex letlive.), drummer Aric Improta (Night Verses), and guitarist Stephen Harrison (ex The Chariot), FEVER 333 released their politically charged, breakthrough EP, Made An America earlier this year. 

Explicitly devoted to a revolutionary cause and delivering aggressive advocacy through a Molotov cocktail of punk, hip-hop, and thrash, FEVER 333’s activism serves as the banner for the band’s focus on community, charity, and change.

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.
