GRAMMY nominated genre-benders, FEVER 333 are officially back with new music in the form of single ‘$WING‘. It is their first studio single in three years and marks the start of a new era for the band complete with brand new line-up! ‘$WING’ brings together the band’s signature blend of rap, ear-worming hooks and punk/hardcore aggression with an ever charismatic performance by frontman Jason Aalon Butler who takes on themes of the sports industry’s historical exploitation of people of colour and the fight for agency and autonomy. Butler explains: “In a system that exploits the aforementioned instruments of power (the people) for financial and political advancement, we must collectively understand and redirect the dynamic once we realize that we are not powerless against it… ‘$WING’ is a sonic reminder that you are the power that they seek and you are the resource they need”.
The new lineup features Butler alongside Thomas Pridgen (The Mars Volta, Thundercat, Trash Talk) on drums, viral bass virtuoso April Kae, and guitarist Brandon Davis.
“This new era of FEVER 333 is beyond even what I could have imagined”, Butler says. “The talent, the funk, the passion, and the respect for this project April, Thomas, and Brandon have already delivered have shown me, once again, that this project is something more than a band on stage”.
The band has also announced a worldwide collaboration between their label 333 Wreckords Crew and Century Media Records to release FEVER 333 music for the foreseeable future..
Speaking on the collab Butler says “I feel very lucky to have entered this partnership with 333 Wreckords Crew and the folks at Century Media for this upcoming album… I’m calling it right now – we’re going to shift a paradigm, or two, regarding how this game gets played and how it tries to play us”.
