Fever 333 have a fresh EP on the way, titled Wrong Generation.

The inspiration for Wrong Generation runs deep. Frontman Jason Aalon Butler spent 13 days marching in protests in Los Angeles after the murder of George Floyd, and afterwards, he wrote this EP.

The set will arrive Oct. 23 via Roadrunner/333 Wreckords Crew.

“This project is art as activism first,” Butler said in a statement. “I’m talking about what’s happening and what needs to happen. I hope you understand there’s going to be pain in progress.”

He added, “After dismantling and deconstructing all of these things, we can find a beautiful place to be together. For me, this whole EP is that 13 days after 34 years. You f***** with the WRONG GENERATION.”

The album’s first single, “Bite Back,” will drop on Oct. 19. Fever 333 will promote the new music with a global livestream tour, which will include six consecutive ticketed livestreamed performances.

The tour will set off with a London / Europe performance on Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. BST. Other dates include Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. PT in Los Angeles; Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. AEST for Sydney / Tokyo; Oct. 28 at 9 p.m. ET for New York; Oct. 29 at 9 p.m. MST for Moscow; and Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. CT for Chicago/Mexico City. Tickets will go on sale this Friday (Oct. 9) at FEVER333.Veeps.com.

“We are so thankful for our allies from all over, so we wanted to find a way to give back to every part of the world that we were lucky enough to reach during our last album cycle,” Butler said of the tour. “We want to offer a new type of LIVE experience during this pandemic period. Exclusivity to each region, actual live in the moment filming, no edits, utilizing a brand-new DIRECT audio feed, making each demo feels as live as possible in an era where the traditional live performance is seemingly unachievable. We feel we have a found a way that most closely achieves that essence in a way that has not yet been done.”
