They may be out on tour with British heavyweights Bring Me the Horizon, but that hasn’t stopped politically-minded activist group the Fever 333 from dropping a new video for “One of Us,” a hard-hitting, pissed-off banger taken from their latest full-length Strength in Numb333rs.

The track’s blatant anti-oppression agenda is visualized in the clip by the band holding a performance in the midst of a smoke-filled protest, mimicking tactics used by police like using tear gas to break up these events. Rap and rock collide as singer Jason Aalon Butler weaves adeptly in and out of rows of dissenters, spitting impassioned lines that lament the state of the American justice system and the corruption of modern policy and police tactics.

Wearing the group’s signature jumpsuits emblazoned with the Fever 333 logo, Butler performs the song’s apex repeating line, “Stand up or die on your knees,” while crawling through the crowd before the scene cuts to him on an elevated platform while the organized protestors gather and hold their signs high with phrases like “Love Water Not Oil” and “Resist” scrawled across them.

Strength in Numb333rs is out now and available on the band official website: $3.33 from each sale will go to benefit Butler’s Walking in My Shoes foundation, which aims to generate “empathy, understanding and change” in marginalized communities. Check out the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
