Today is March 11 — or 311 Day, the date each calendar year that long-running alt/rock/reggae band 311 drops big news.
The group followed suit accordingly, as on Monday 311 revealed plans for a big co-headlining summer tour with Dirty Heads, in addition to some news about a new record — which will be the follow-up to 2017’s Mosaic, and the group’s 13th studio effort to date.
The news comes as 311’s Enlarged To Show Detail 3 documentary film hits theaters on March 11 for a one-night-only special engagement for fans … again, all as part of 311 Day festivities.
As for the tour, the summer outing will find 311 and Dirty Heads joining forces on co-headlining trek, with special guests The Interrupters and support from Dreamers and Bikini Trill, among others.
In addition, 311’s new album will be out sometime this summer, and the band launched a pre-order with special perks for fans at this link.
