Lamb Of God Release Cover Of Bad Brains Feat. Jason Butler

There’s two bands whom have come together for an amazing cover track!

Lamb Of God and Jason Butler of Fever 333 are the two bands that have teamed up for a live performance of ‘Bad Brains ‘I Against I’.

“The idea to cover I Against I goes back at least 20 years to a camping trip the band was on,” explains LoG’s Randy Blythe. ​“Mark [Morton, guitar] and I were sitting in the back of our buddy’s Jeep ripping through the mountains, Bad Brains was cranking on the stereo, and I was singing along to that particular song. Mark looked over at me and said, ​‘We should cover that tune.’ So we thought about it for a couple of decades and finally got around to doing it for the Burn The Priest Legion: XX record – hey, sometimes we move a little slow…

“As we all know, this pandemic has sucked for live music, but the quarantine jams bands have been doing have been pretty fun, especially when you bring in guests,” the frontman continues. ​“I saw FEVER 333 for the first time at the Sonic Temple fest – I had never listened to them, but I was blown away by their live show. I remember thinking, ​‘Man, these dudes are wild; their energy reminds me of the punk shows I saw in the ​’80s and I’ve been friends with those dudes from that day. I even texted Darryl from Bad Brains that afternoon to tell him to check them out. It was only natural to ask Jason to join us and bring that energy to this song by the almighty Bad Brains, my favourite band of all time.”

Jason adds: ​“It is truly an honour to be a part of this one as I have the utmost respect for Randy and the boys since becoming homies after having my mind blown when I looked over at the side of the stage at Sonic Temple Fest and saw him watching us play. It’s been a pleasure getting to know him and an honour to rock LoG celebrating one of the most important punk rock/musical acts of all time, Bad Brains. From legends to legends to the student. All love.”

Watch Fever 333 Storm A Livestream Set, ‘Jason Butler’ Gives Impassioned Speech On Race In America

A few days ago, you might recall a post on The Fever 333 having a livestream event with proceeds going towards the Minnestota Freedom Fund and Black Lives Matter.

Well, it was a masterpiece of a set. Not only did the livestream feature some of their most insane material, but frontman Jason Butler made several passionate speeches and comments throughout the video, calling on the music industry for not supporting the black community properly where he challenged viewers to have serious conversations about race struggles in America.

After ‘The Innocent’, Butler paused to speak to the viewers, talking about the systems that “do not care about us – not the way it cares about itself”.

“For years we’ve been fighting, due to ideals, constructs known as ‘race’, and the fear of each other. Right now in America, there is a fire that is being stoked, flames that are being fanned by people in power. The people are relinquishing their power – the very power that we possess, simply by existing, as a people, as a nation, as a constituency. We are giving up our power to someone, and to people, and to a system, that does not care about us – not the way it cares about itself.

“I don’t care where you sit on this spectrum: if you’re able to watch the atrocities that are happening every single day – much like our brother George Floyd being slain on the streets in front of a camera – and you don’t think that there’s a problem, then you are that fucking problem.

“Like I said, this is a safe space, and we can have that conversation all day. But do not retreat when I tell you what the fuck it is that you are. These are facts laid out on paper. These are policies written out, systems in place. You can find this out for your very self. This is not bias. I promise you: if you seek this out, you will find it, and it will be verified by our system – the one I mentioned earlier.

“What I ask of you today is to have the conversation. Don’t be afraid to have the conversation – so afraid that you impose violence upon another person. I challenge you to have the conversation today. I’ll have it with you.”

The band also paused to remember all those who’ve been lost over the last few years where he calls out the music industry for benefiting from the black community but not doing enough for them.

“Atlantic Records. Sony Records. Interscope Records. RCA Records, Def Jam, Island, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, show up for black people. You love black culture? Show up for black people,” he shouted during One Of Us.
