FEVER 333 Announce Long Live The Innocent Livestream
Jason Aalon Butler is not one to keep quiet when something’s on his mind – as he demonstrated when discussing George Floyd’s death and the ongoing protests with Kerrang! earlier in the week. Now, the frontman and his bandmates in FEVER 333 are keeping this particular message going, announcing a livestream called Long Live The Innocent.
The trio will be unveiling a one-night-only full-production gig tonight at FEVER333.com from 11pm BST / 6pm EDT / 3pm PDT, with proceeds and donations from the event going towards the Minnesota Freedom Fund and Black Lives Matter.
“This is a concentrated effort to encourage people to go beyond awareness and take action,” says Jason. “With localised efforts in the name of justice for a specifically targeted group of people in this country, this will serve as an artistic activation as well as a platform to activate necessary measures for social and racial reformation. The advantages we predict we will see if crossing demographics musically in preset to proliferate a message that MUST find its way over the barriers of genre.
“Music and art have served as the catalyst for socially inclined movements for as long as we can remember, but for some reason, at a time where we are now granted the ability to see how deeply flawed our system is, we have slowed the charge for change. FEVER 333 has dedicated its entire platform to that change from its inception with its music, activism, even its own charity fund that sees a percentage of proceeds funnelled from all profits the project receives. This is not a marketing method, this is a tool for change. Please consider widening this message for the people with FEVER 333 by joining us in this effort.”
