Tallah Recruit Fire From The Gods, Chelsea Grin, & Guerrilla Warfare Members For New Song “Vanilla Paste”

Tallah have premiered a new video for their new song “Vanilla Paste.” That track features a number of special guests including: Fire From the Gods’ AJ Channer, Chelsea Grin’s Tom Barber, and Guerrilla Warfare’s Garrett Hood. Tallah’s Justin Bonitz told Loudwire that the song is “basically about having bullshit forced down your throat, whether it is lies from the media, unimportant drama, abuse from a significant other, etc.” He also added:

“‘Vanilla Paste‘ represents something you are digesting which has no nutritional value or substance. It is just flavored paste. It tastes sweet and stimulates your senses, but it is not actually doing anything for you. You cannot survive off of nothing, and that is what that crap is, nothing. In this song, we have people who have been fed this ‘nothing’ their whole lives. They are tired of it [and] ready to make a change.”

Guerrilla Warfare Premiere “NU.Wav” Music Video

Guerrilla Warfare have premiered a new video for their new single “NU.Wav.” This news comes after the band recently signed with Fever 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler’s 333 Wreckords Crew.

Guerrilla Warfare’s Garrett 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.”

He also added the following about signing with 333 Wreckords Crew:

“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.”

Butler commented as well:

“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.”

Jason Aalon Butler (Fever 333) Launches 333 Wreckords Crew

Fever 333 frontman Jason Aalon Butler has launched his own artist collective called 333 Wreckords Crew. With this news, he has also announced the label’s first signing, Guerrilla Warfare.

Butler commented:

“When I started this project it was quite literally built upon a foundation of community. In my mind this community would thrive due to its unique focus on ethics, progressiveness, a symbiotic structuring and, of course, dope art. I believe that the difference between myself and many other record labels (especially most established ones) is that I am not here to make money off of my artists. I am an artist who wants to create a structure that challenges the current music creation process and disrupts the way it is distributed. I will do this by working with my artists. So we all have a stake in the fulfillment and success of the art.”

“It is very seldom you find personnel in the music business with any actual experience beyond the desk or computer they’ve been placed in front of and tasked to do the impossible – understand the infinitely faceted experience and perspective of an artist creating art that isn’t theirs.

Even when you do find the rare employee that ‘had a band and played outside cities on the weekends’ it often still couldn’t be farther from the understanding you as an artist are looking for when you’re stuck on a section of highway in the middle of the night that isn’t even listed on Google maps trying to find a replacement gas tank for the one your van just lost due to an animal bone puncturing your previous one because you ran over the remains of an accident that wasn’t properly handled earlier that day and all you want to do is make the next show so you can possibly eat tomorrow.

Strangely specific? Well you can guess that I am remarking on a situation I, as an artist, experienced which is one of thousands that make up the prism through which I will view my artists’ needs, desires, tribulations, and queries. Essentially, I will offer them ACTUAL experience which will be conducive to their progression and success in all situations while keeping their vision, health, and emotional safety at the front of my mind at all times.”

He also added the following on Facebook:

“Someone had to find an alternative to the approach that has kept artists on the wrong side of the benefits in this industry for far too long. If someone’s going to do it, it might as well be us- the artists. We are 333 WRECKORDS CREW.”
