"I can't Breathe", the last words George Floyd uttered as he was murdered were heard again through a painful scream, frontman Jason Aalon Butler, shouted on June 3 during FEVER 333’s ‘Long Live The Innocent’ livestream in aid of Black Lives Matter and Minnesota Freedom Fund.
The frontman was not content with expressing his outrage over Floyd's death through the stream; he spent 13 days marching the streets of LA taking part of the protests which have triggered the writing of the new EP 'Wrong Generation'.
Jason says :
“This project is art as activism first. 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.”
'Wrong Generation' is out on October 23 and will officially be launched with the single 'Bite Back' which is set to be released on October 19 .
The EP will be accompanied with the first-ever virtual global tour. Butler says that FEVER333 have found a new way to offer a new type of LIVE experience:
"Exclusivity to each region, actual live in the moment filming, no edits, utilizing 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."
The WRONG GENERATION global tour will be a series of virtual shows that will take place across the globe from October 23 to October 3 with each region having a unique d333monstration.
From anywhere in the world, you can purchase tickets for any of the virtual shows at FEVER333.Veeps.com.
