311 just released new album STEREOLITHIC, their 9th consecutive album to debut in the top 10 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Album Chart. The album also entered No. 1 on both the Rock and Indie Charts.

STEREOLITHIC was released via the band’s own 311 Records and distributed by INgrooves, making it 311’s first truly independent release since their early days as an unsigned band in Omaha, Nebraska.
The band celebrated the release with “311 Day,” a 5-hour, 66-song set at the New Orleans Arena. As pointed out by Consequence of Sound, “there’s something about a band playing 60+ songs over five hours that’s worthy of our attention. Aside from Springsteen or Pearl Jam, there aren’t many acts who can claim such a feat.”

The band recorded STEREOLITHIC 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 SoundsystemSTEREOLITHIC was mixed by Ralston and 311 drummer Chad Sexton. Rolling Stone described the album as an LP “bursting with joyous choruses and taut grooves” and Entertainment Weekly praised the disc for its “fattened power chords, reggae stylings and gentle melodies.”

Over the course of their amazing career, 311 has sold close to 9 million albums in the U.S. alone. They’ve had 9 top 10 radio hits, including three No. 1’s. Their list of hits includes “Down,” “All Mixed Up,” “Amber,”  “Love Song,”  “Come Original,” “Beautiful Disaster,”  “Don’t Tread On Me,” “Hey You” and “Sunset In July.” For 11 consecutive years, the band has headlined amphitheaters across the U.S. with their summer “Unity Tour.” They also host an annual Caribbean Cruise – a four-night trip from Miami to a private island in the Bahamas attended by thousands of fans from around the world.
