FEVER 333 have shared a new visualizer for “For The Record,” a track from their latest EP, WRONG GENERATION.
The track sees frontman Jason Butler teaming up with Walter Delgado for Rotting Out and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The furious, raging song finds Butler singing “Feeling the burden of tomorrow’s yesterday / You’re selling freedom to modern slaves / We can’t even afford the chains.”
The accompanying video shows off Butler’s love of skateboarding as he explains to NME:
“Skateboarding taught me so much about creativity, alternative thinking and alternative utilization. It was the thing that would get me to band practice as a young person. It helped me in more ways than I even knew at the time. It’s really the first time I’ve been able to put that into effect with my music, it was very exciting. ”

In a recent interview with NME, Butler discussed how the EP launched conversations about racism, but there’s more that needs to be done.
“The EP spoke loudly about something that we [people of colour] experience at all times, particularly in a western world,” Butler explains. Some internal conflicts came with the heightened awareness of the EP’s release, though. “I think that ‘Wrong Generation’’s reception was cool, and it was highlighted because of these more recent events that got more attention, but for me it was like ‘I don’t know’, we’re saying the same shit.
“I was almost conflicted in a lot of ways when doing interviews prior [to its release] and having that conversation where people would ask: ‘why now?’ I don’t know why now. George Floyd to me was a totem, a large representation of what’s been happening for generations.”
Jason Butler and Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe recently teamed up to cover Bad Brains’ “I Against I.”
