FEVER 333

Knitting Factory, Wednesday, April 24

by

FEVER 333 is aptly named: If you had to choose a single word to describe the hip-hop/punk hybrid's sound, "feverish" would be a good one. So would "angry." Nominated in 2018 for a Best Rock Performance Grammy, the band is on the rise, no doubt in part due to the groundswell of activism its sonic screams promote. Tracks like "BURN IT," which rails against police violence, invoking Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr. and Rodney King in a single breath, combine shredding guitars, throaty shrieks and pulse-pounding drums to create a blistering cocktail. "ONE OF US" is another riot of sound, its music video dropping the band members directly into the center of a Los Angeles protest against privilege in all its forms. The supergroup, which includes members of The Chariot, Letlive, and Night Verses, will inject its manic energy into Boise's Knitting Factory on Wednesday, April 24, to promote its debut album, STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS (Roadrunner Records/333 Wreckords Crew, 2019). Don't go unprepared.
