311 Day and new album details

How many times can this press release info use the numerals 1 and 3? Let me count the ways...

There will be new 311 on 3/11, as multi-platinum rock band 311 has announced a March 11 release date for their new album.

The disc will arrive via 311 Records and be marketed and distributed through INgrooves/INresidence, making it 311’s first truly independent release since the band’s early days as an unsigned band living in Omaha, Nebraska.
311 recorded the new album with longtime collaborator/producer Scott Ralston, best known for his work on some of the band’s most popular releases, including 1993’s gold-selling Music, 1995's triple-platinum selling 311, 1997’s platinum-selling Transistor and 1999’s gold-selling Soundsystem. The new album is being mixed by Ralston and 311 drummer Chad Sexton.

The new album is the follow-up to 2011’s Universal Pulse, which entered Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart at No. 7, making it the band’s eighth straight top 10 debut. 

The quintet (Sexton, Hexum, bassist P-Nut, guitarist Tim Mahoney and vocalist SA Martinez) will celebrate the album’s release with their bi-annual “311 Day.” The 2014 concert, which takes place on March 11 at the New Orleans Arena, will be a coming home of sorts, as the first “311 Day” was held in New Orleans back in 2000 (the last two events took place in Vegas).

Ticket information is available at  

"We can't wait to bring 311 Day back home to New Orleans where it all began,” says Hexum. “Our fans from all over the world will be there.  There's just a real sense of unity and community when our fans gather in NOLA - and always amazing energy at the show."
