311 Disc Online Preview Today and Tomorrow
Omaha's fave band 311 has their new disc Uplifter streaming online at MySpace tonight and tomorrow (May 26-27). The new disc which hits store shelves on June 2 can be heard in it's entirety for this period. After that, only select tunes from the new disc will be featured online and the band asks that its fans post their comments and feedback.
Uplifter is the bands ninth studio album and the first since 2005's Don't Tread on Me. This latest effort is produced by Bob Rock. If that name rings a bell its because Rock is closely associated with Metallica having helmed all of Metallica's discs from the Black Album thru to St. Anger. Fortunately for fans of 311 there is no carryover of Metallica on Uplifter.
The boys from 311 hit the road in support of Uplifter on June 3 at the Majestic in Bakersfield. They hit Jimmy Kimmel the following night and zig across the country throughout June and July before circling back to CA and closing out on July 12 at the Verizon Amphitheatre in Irvine.
The lead single is Hey You and the following video is a behind the scenes look at the making of Hey You.
