THE FEVER 333 Give Away Brand-New Song, Trigger
THE FEVER 333 are giving away a brand-new song, Trigger.
Announcing the track via frontman Jason Aalon Butler talking in front of Washington, D.C.’s NRA building, the trio are letting fans download it for free over at Trigger.thefever333.com.
Understandably, Jason’s got a whole bunch to say on the subject – read his statement below:
I’m not here to tilt anyone towards my side of a complicated and ideological argument with biases.

I’m talking about the protocol by which we obtain firearms and the statistical problem we are fostering every day we do not ask for some sort of reform, solution, or acknowledgement regarding this matter.
I understand how we got here, rebellion got us here and rebellion will keep us here – but when the things that we want to protect ourselves with are killing us, we need to have that conversation and it needs to happen now.
Trigger’s stirring artwork looks like this:
