GRAMMY® Award-nominated activists FEVER 333 have shared details of WRONG GENERATION, a brand-new release which will arrive 23rd October via Roadrunner Records / 333 Wreckords Crew [artwork / tracklisting below]. Following the tragic murder of George Floyd, FEVER 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler spent 13 days in the streets as he marched on the frontlines of rebellion in Los Angeles. On the 14thday, he came home and wrote what would become their forthcoming collection, WRONG GENERATION.
Butler commented, “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’s lead track ‘BITE BACK’ will arrive on 19th October.
Alongside details of their forthcoming EP, FEVER 333 have also announced the first-ever global livestream tour, a series of six consecutive ticketed livestream performances, each broadcasting live in market specific time zones. WORLD TOUR FOR THE WRONG GENERATION promises to shape the future of livestream experiences with innovations in audio and visual technology. FEVER 333 are set to implement a never before used proprietary audio technology, boasting unrivaled direct audio with close to zero latency, offering a new fan experience. The 32-Bit technology, which is the ultimate in ultra-high-definition audio, will set a new standard for fans to experience live audio online. Held in an immersive LED walled room and performed live for the local time zones, the tour will kick off with a London / European focused performance on October 23rd at 8:00PM BST. Additional performances include: October 24th 8:00PM PST (Los Angeles), October 27th7:00PM AEST (Sydney / Tokyo), October 28th 9:00PM EST (New York), October 29th9:00PM MST (Moscow), and October 30th 8:00PM CST (Chicago / Mexico City). Tickets for each date will be available from Friday, October 9th, at FEVER333.Veeps.Com.
Butler elaborated on WORLD TOUR FOR THE WRONG GENERATION stating, “We are so thankful for our allies from all over, so we wanted to find a way to give back to every part of the world that we were lucky enough to reach during our last album cycle. We want to offer a new type of LIVE experience during this pandemic period. 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.”
WORLD TOUR FOR THE WRONG GENERATION follows FEVER 333’s groundbreaking LONG LIVE THE INNOCENT livestream, which drew in over 300,000 views for the one-night-only full production livestream performance. Conceived in solidarity with the communities across the county protesting for justice, FEVER 333 donated all proceeds from the performance to the Minnesota Freedom Fund and Black Lives Matter, initiatives aimed at advancing the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders. Last year, FEVER 333 took the world by storm with their global headline D333MONSTRATIONS tour. Alongside sold-out demonstrations, FEVER 333 ignited festival stages across the world at: Lollapalooza South America, AfroPunk, Reading Festival, Download UK, Download AU, Park Live Moscow, and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival.
