GRAMMY® Award-nominated activists FEVER 333 have shared details of WRONG GENERATION, a brand-new release which will arrive October 23rd via Roadrunner Records / 333 WRECKORDS CREW. 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 14th day, 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 October 19th.
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.

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, Download UK, Download AU, Park Live Moscow, and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival.

ABOUT FEVER 333:
Rebellion needed a soundtrack. It got that and a whole lot more from FEVER 333. Rallying around a mission of “art as activism” in 2017, the group first publicly assembled with an unpermitted D333MONSTRATION in front of a South Central Los Angeles landmark—ducking out before the cops came, but leaving a mark on the streets of their hometown. Shockwaves rippled through the culture. The title track of their MADE AN AMERICA EP scored a 2019 GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of “Best Rock Performance.” Their full-length Roadrunner Records/333 Wreckords Crew debut LP, STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS, toppled 60 million total streams. KERRANG! christened it, “The best debut album of 2019,” honored the group with “Best Song” at the 2019 KERRANG! Awards, and included them on a cover alongside Metallica, Jimmy Page, Ghost, and Skunk Anansie. Not to mention, they have collaborated with everyone from POPPY to RUN-D.M.C. and Vic Mensa.
In addition to selling out headline D333MONSTRATIONS everywhere, they ignited the stages of Lollapalooza South America, AfroPunk, Reading, Download UK, Download AU, Park Live Moscow, and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival. Standing up alongside the people, they regularly participate in activism with a focus on community, charity, and change. FEVER 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler created the Walking In My Shoes Foundation to benefit organizations that generate empathy, understanding, and change within the communities they serve, including Movement Voter Project – Black Voter Fund, United For A Fair Economy, and Mijente Support Committee. Following the tragic murder of George Floyd, Jason spent 13 days in the streets as he marched on the frontlines of rebellion in L.A. On the 14th day, he came home and wrote what would become the 2020 EP, WRONG GENERATION.
