There are no videos of 311 playing a show in Buffalo and WNY on Youtube. None. That should give you a sense of how long it’s been since the group played here in WNY.
So when a chance like you have this Monday night to see 311 Live at Artpark pops up, you need to drop whatever it is you’re doing and make your way up to Lewiston for a great night of live music.
They have a fresh new album named MOSIAC which is available now and debuted at #6 on the charts . It was produced by John Feldmann (Blink 182, Panic! at the Disco, The Used, etc.) and Scotch Ralston (who produced 311’s Transistor, Soundsystem & Stereolithic albums).
MOSAIC features 17 songs. With current single “Too Much To Think,” getting a great response.
“This song is about the highs and lows of life. Seeking an escape from the every day stresses of life. Nick Hexum says.
Over the course of their amazing career, 311 has sold over 9 million albums.
311’s last 9 consecutive albums reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts and they’ve had 9 Top 10 radio hits, including three No. 1’s. Their list of hits includes “Down,” “All Mixed Up,” “Amber,” (see video above) “Love Song,” “Come Original,” “Beautiful Disaster,” “Don’t Tread OnMe,” “Hey You,” and “Sunset In July.”
“We are incredibly happy to learn that Mosaic was our 10th consecutive Top 10 album,” explains Nick Hexum. “This achievement is a nod to the loyalty of the 311 fanbase. We’re very grateful.”
The band’s celebratory live shows & incessant touring schedule have earned them a massive grassroots following nationwide. Since its inception in 2004, 311’s annual summer headlining amphitheater run, Unity Tour, has become one of the largest modern rock concerts of the summer.
Support acts on this years tour include the New Politics and the Skints:
Tickets still remain but are moving fast. Don’t get shut out of one of the Summer’s best shows here in WNY.
