Roadrunner Records activists THE FEVER 333 have shared an official music video for MADE AN AMERICA, which is streaming today on the group’s official YouTube channel. Check it out here:
The black and white video was directed by the band’s own Jason Aalon Butler, who commented on the video stating:
“I am not afraid to talk about the truth anymore. I am not threatened by the ignorance that allowed us to push a very problematic history aside. There is no more reason for me to be compliant through silence, and there is absolutely no room for such silence in art. If you feel challenged by the idea of this video, I would encourage you to ask yourself ‘why?’ Then you can feel free to ask me or the other members of this project. This video was an attempt to offer representation to gravely underrepresented, and ironically prevalent, faction in both music and society. This is an acknowledgment of those whose bodies were exploited in the name of power. The beautiful bodies and souls that have been taken from time and time again to serve the interests of someone else with no regard for their own existence or advancement. America has provided examples of this for millennia, by make no mistake, we are not the only ones. My hope here is that people understand that by challenging these clearly damaging practices against people, we- the people, can observe the power that we possess when we move in solidarity. Integration, both voluntary and forcefully, sits at the foundation of our success and our failures as a people. Lest we forget, there is no power without the people, therefore all power lies within all people. We built this mother fucker.”
MADE AN AMERICA is the title track from THE FEVER 333’s politically charged debut EP which is available now at all digital music retailers and streaming services via Roadrunner Records/333 Wreckords Crew.
