After weeks of teasing the start of his own record label, today FEVER 333 frontman Jason Butler has finally launched 333 Wreckords Crew.
To coincide with the exciting news, Butler has also revealed his very first signing – Kentucky nu-metal and hardcore outfit Guerilla Warfare.
Speaking briefly about the upstart act who just premiered their new single “NU.Wav,” Butler said, “I believe that when things speak to you that quickly simply due to the irrefutable energy they convey, you have to act on that. So that’s what I did.”
As for what the young Lousiville trio had to say about singing to 333 Wreckords Crew, Guerilla Warfare vocalist/drummer Garrett Hood said, “To have somebody like Jason who I’ve literally idolized for years, in terms of being a performer, songwriter, activist and overall human being, involved with GW is a literal dream come true for me personally and for all of us. We feel that he & 333 Wreckords Crew understand and support the bridge of cultures and sounds we are trying to create in our music and we could not be happier to work together to watch our vision come into fruition.”
As for the band’s new hardcore and hip-hop-influenced track “NU.Wav,” Hood commented:
“We took influence from current rap artists like Tee Grizzley and tried to tie in some old school Beastie Boys style to the flavor to the vocals. Instrumentally, we have always loved nu-metal and hardcore both and we think those influences speak for themselves.
The ‘NU.Wav‘ video was shot at our EP release show at Headliners in Louisville, KY on May 25th and in the 5’x3’ half bathroom of my apartment in Old Louisville by Ana Massard & Alex Constante. We fit six people in that tiny room – three in front of the camera and three behind including our friend Mat Schladen on the camera work. The video was then edited by Ana and eventually animated by Alex.”
