MUSIC NEWS: Fever 333 singer Jason Aalon Butler says band will continue after band members departures - READ IT HERE
Jason Aalon Butler has since commented on the simultaneous departures of Aric Improta and Stephen Harrison. Though being one of rock's most explosive live bands, it appears as though things might have been a little combustible inside Fever 333 as well. Two of the band's three members - Stephen Harrison and Aric Improta - simultaneously released statements that they have decided to leave the band, with vocalist Jason Aalon Butler being the lone remaining member.
"Aric and I have decided to leave Fever 333. I won’t get into the details but things were pretty bad internally," wrote Harrison. "That plus creative differences sort of left me with no choice. That said, I’m so thankful for all the amazing fans, people who helped Fever behind the scenes, and my friends and family who supported me through all of this. Your support means so much! I still plan to make music. Aric and I will probably do something together in the future. Love you guys!! Know your worth!!" The musician also shared several slides from their time as a band.
Improta shared the same slides, explaining in his statement, "Steve and I have decided to step away Fever 333. It's layered, but ultimately, I’d just rather dedicate my time to projects that operate different than that one."
He added, "Massive thank you to all of our fans, our friends and the amazing people who helped us along the way (you know who you are). We got to play some unforgettable shows, travel a ton and meet some incredible individuals. Steve and I will probably do something together in the future."
BREAKING NEWS: Rage Against The Machine cancel 2023 north american tourZack de la Rocha issues statement - READ IT HERE
Rage Against the Machine's Zack de la Rocha has some disappointing news to deliver, revealing that the recovery from his torn achilles tendon injury will need more time and that as a result the band has decided to call off their 2023 North American tour dates.
Fans will recall de la Rocha injuring his leg very early on in the band's touring this past summer. Determined to continue the run, the singer performed nightly sitting on a road touring case, unable to maneuver around the stage on his own.
Shortly after the North American dates concluded, the band called off their U.K. and European tour leg, acting upon "medical guidance."
Now Zack himself has issued a public statement sharing his disappointment over next year's North American tour cancellation and further explaining the significance of his his injury
It's been almost three months since Chicago and I still look down at my leg in disbelief. Two years of waiting through the pandemic hoping we would have an opening to be a band again and continue the work we started 30 some odd years ago. Rehearsing, training, reconciling, working our way back to form. Then one-and-a-half shows into it and my tendon tears. Felt like a sick joke the universe played on me. As I write this I remind myself it's just bad circumstance. Just a fucked up moment.
Unfortunately it is a moment that requires a lot of work and healing. I have a severe tear in my left achilles tendon and only 8 percent of my tendon was left intact. And even that was severely compromised. It's not simply a question of being able to perform again, but extends to basic functionality going forward. That's why I've made the painful and difficult decision to cancel the remaining shows on our 2023 North American leg.
I hate cancelling shows. I hate disappointing our fans. You have all waited so patiently to see us and that is never lost on me. I never take that for granted. For you I have the ultimate gratitude and respect.
To my brothers Tim, Brad, and Tom; to El P, Killer Mike, Trackstar and the whole RTJ crew; to everyone on our production team: techs, cooks, drivers, assistants, security squad, to anyone and everyone who made the shows thus far possible, all my love and respect. I hope to see you very soon.
- Zack de la Rocha.
