Ahead of the release of upcoming eight-track EP WRONG GENERATION, FEVER 333 have unleashed the record's explosive opener, BITE BACK.

And it sets the tone perfectly for what will follow, with frontman Jason Aalon Butler explaining that he wrote the band's latest collection of songs after spending 13 days protesting on the streets following the death of George Floyd.

Read this: Jason Aalon Butler: “We have a fucking problem. People are dying en masse, kids are going to school and killing their peers… We need to find a solution”

“This project is art as activism first,” he says. “I’m talking about what’s happening and what needs to happen. I hope you understand there’s going to be pain in progress. After dismantling and deconstructing all of these things, we can find a beautiful place to be together. For me, this whole EP is that 13 days after 34 years. You fucked with the WRONG GENERATION.”

Of BITE BACK specifically, Jason elaborates: “Everything in this song was what I’d seen during those 13 days and what I felt needed to happen. I saw buildings burn. I saw fights. I saw white allies stepping in front of the National Guard, because they knew they had a power those black bodies behind them did not. What did you expect? When you put any creature in a corner for so long and show them how quickly life can be taken from them, I don’t know what other option there is but fighting back.”

FEVER 333 will be performing virtually for fans this month after the incredible success and power of their Long Live The Innocent livestream in June.

“We are so thankful for our allies from all over, so we wanted to find a way to give back to every part of the world that we were lucky enough to reach during our last album cycle,” Jason explains. “We want to offer a new type of live experience during this pandemic period. Exclusivity to each region, actual live in the moment filming, no edits, utilising a brand-new direct audio feed, making each demo feels as live as possible in an era where the traditional live performance is seemingly unachievable. We feel we have a found a way that most closely achieves that essence in a way that has not yet been done.”
