FEVER 333: “We’re Speaking With The People, Not For Them”
FEVER 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler has spoken exclusively to Kerrang! about his band not being a movement, but a part of something bigger.
In March last year, Jason told Kerrang! that his former band letlive. were “Soul Punx” and that FEVER 333 “is a movement”, but now he has provided some clarification to clear up how this new genre-bending trio are just one part of something stronger.
“We’re only here because there’s a movement that precedes us,” Jason tells Kerrang!. “We can try our best to be a mouthpiece, an amplifier, a soundtrack, but we are not the movement.
“When we do a festival or something similar, we don’t even arrive on the same platform as the rest of the festival – not in an arrogant way, but whatever quality we bring to that festival is so separate from everything and everyone else. We’re literally just a board to bounce ideas, feelings, emotions, frustrations and desires off of. We’re speaking with the people, not for them.”
In the new issue of Kerrang!, Jason talks to us about new album Strength In Numb333rs, being an artist, his onstage activities and where FEVER 333 fit in this world gone mad.
The new issue of Kerrang! is on sale January 16, available in UK stores and from Newsstand.
