Meet Guerrilla Warfare: The First Signing To Jason Aalon Butler’s 333 Wreckords Crew
Following on from last month’s launch of his 333 Wreckords Crew, Jason Aalon Butler’s collective have just unveiled their first signing: the absolutely wicked Guerrilla Warfare.
“To have somebody like Jason who I’ve literally idolised for years, in terms of being a performer, songwriter, activist and overall human being, involved with Guerrilla Warfare is a literal dream come true for me personally and for all of us,” enthuses vocalist and drummer Garrett Hood. “We feel that he and 333 Wreckords Crew understand and support the bridge of cultures and sounds we are trying to create in our music and we could not be happier to work together to watch our vision come into fruition.”
“I believe that when things speak to you that quickly simply due to the irrefutable energy they convey, you have to act on that,” adds Jason. “So that’s what I did.”

The Louisville three-piece have dropped a new video to coincide with the news, NU.Wav, the single of which is taken from Guerrilla’s C O N S U M E EP.
“We took influence from current rap artists like Tee Grizzley and tried to tie in some old school Beastie Boys style to the flavor to the vocals,” continues Garrett. “Instrumentally, we have always loved nu-metal and hardcore, and we think those influences speak for themselves.
“The NU.Wav video was shot at our EP release show at Headliners in Louisville, KY on May 25 and in the 5’x3’ half bathroom of my apartment in Old Louisville by Ana Massard and Alex Constante. We fit six people in that tiny room – three in front of the camera and three behind, including our friend Mat Schladen on the camera work. The video was then edited by Ana and eventually animated by Alex.”
