FEVER 333 share new single ‘New West Order’

Fever 333 Announce 2024 Tour, Unleash New Song “New West Order”: Stream

FEVER 333 return with new single “New West Order,” in which frontman Jason Aalon Butler raps about his life and music career.

Speaking about the song Butler says “There is an intersectional hot bed where the hood and hardcore meet. For pimp’s and punks alike to enjoy and celebrate their taboos. This intersection is beautifully represented in Los Angeles and ‘New West Order’ is an unapologetic exploration of my experience as a social variable growing up in LA that I think the world should also have the privilege of being exposed to. It is also the beginning of west coast gangster rock as a genre and a culture.”

Listen to the song below.

Additionally, FEVER 333 have announced a 2024 tour, which includes a fall US leg and a UK/EU leg. See all their dates here.

MOVEMENTS unveil new song ‘Afraid to Die’

MOVEMENTS have shared a new video for their latest single “Afraid to Die,” their first new music since last year’s RUCKUS!

“With “Afraid to Die,’ we were able to take the energy that was in RUCKUS!, and fine-tune it by exploring different realms of what this band can be and what our music can sound like, and I think we did a good job of that with this song,” says frontman Patrick Miranda.

“Sonically, it’s so different than anything we’ve ever done, and yet I think it still pulls on the heart strings as a lot of our older music does. This song is energetic and bouncy, and I can see it being a really fun song to play live and I can’t wait to start doing that!”
