The Fever 333 Unveil Black And White Video For Made An America

Wednesday, 22 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

The Fever 333 have released an accompanying video for the title track of their debut EP, 'Made An America'.

The Los Angeles-based activists, comprising ex-Letlive. vocalist Jason Aalon Butler, former Night Verses drummer Aric Improta and ex-Chariot guitarist Stephen Harrison, released the politically charged EP back in March. The poignant video, meanwhile, was directed by Butler, who commented:

"I am not afraid to talk about the truth anymore. I am not threatened by the ignorance that allowed us to push a very problematic history aside. There is no more reason for me to be compliant through silence, and there is absolutely no room for such silence in art. If you feel challenged by the idea of this video, I would encourage you to ask yourself 'why?' Then you can feel free to ask me or the other members of this project.

"This video was an attempt to offer representation to gravely underrepresented, and ironically prevalent, faction in both music and society. This is an acknowledgment of those whose bodies were exploited in the name of power. The beautiful bodies and souls that have been taken from time and time again to serve the interests of someone else with no regard for their own existence or advancement. "America has provided examples of this for millennia, by make no mistake, we are not the only ones.

"My hope here is that people understand that by challenging these clearly damaging practices against people, we - the people, can observe the power that we possess when we move in solidarity. Integration, both voluntary and forcefully, sits at the foundation of our success and our failures as a people. Lest we forget, there is no power without the people, therefore all power lies within all people. We built this mother fucker."

The band will release the 'Made An America' EP on 12" vinyl this Friday, August 24, before hitting the UK's Reading Festival and Brooklyn's Afropunk Festival this coming weekend plus Chicago's Riot Fest in September, with more US dates to follow. They warm up for their Reading appearance with a one off London show at the O2 Academy Islington tonight.

The Fever 333 Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Wed August 22 2018 - LONDON O2 Academy Islington
