In light of their recent line-up change with drummer Aric Improta and guitarist Stephen Harrison departing the band, FEVER 333 have announced that all live activity is off until spring 2023.

With Jason Aalon Butler seemingly the sole remaining member of the project right now, the frontman explains that gigs are on hold “in order to give everyone the best experience possible”.

“Taking this time to reset and prepare will help reach that goal,” he says in a statement. “On behalf of the project I want to thank you all so much for the energy and support you continue to offer. You were promised a new and exciting era of FEVER 333 and that is what you’ll get.”

Following Aric and Stephen’s departure from FEVER, Jason shared his gratitude for his former bandmates while also writing of the future of the band: “I started this project in order to fill a space in music and culture that I have always wanted to see and know many others like and unlike me would also like to experience. Offering representation and progress not only on stages but through the art is paramount for me. I told myself I would not compromise that vision and I must hold true to that promise. Not only for me, but the others out there looking for somewhere to feel free. So I want to take this moment to say thank you to Aric, Stephen and everyone who has made that possible thus far. The initial era of FEVER 333 was incredible in so many ways and I am so excited to present to you the next one.”
