Well, this is something we weren’t expecting to hear about today. Guitarist Stephen Harrison and drummer Aric Improta have quit FEVER 333 leaving vocalist Jason Aalon Butler as the sole member.
Both members have released their own statements where they cite internal struggles leading to their departures.
“Aric and I have decided to leave Fever 333. I won’t get into the details but things were pretty bad internally,” wrote Harrison. “That plus creative differences sort of left me with no choice. That said, I’m so thankful for all the amazing fans, people who helped Fever behind the scenes, and my friends and family who supported me through all of this. Your support means so much! I still plan to make music. Aric and I will probably do something together in the future. Love you guys!! Know your worth!!”
Improta’s statement reads: “Steve and I have decided to step away Fever 333. It’s layered, but ultimately, I’d just rather dedicate my time to projects that operate different than that one.”
He added, “Massive thank you to all of our fans, our friends and the amazing people who helped us along the way (you know who you are). We got to play some unforgettable shows, travel a ton and meet some incredible individuals. Steve and I will probably do something together in the future.”
So far, Butler has not released a statement about Improta’s and Harrison’s departures.
