Can’t get enough of “Five of Everything?” It is now available for purchase on iTunes!

Also, the official video for “Five of Everything” is now on YouTube – take a moment to leave a positive comment about the song to raise awareness!

I’m so glad this song came out when it did. It has completely re-fueled my excitement about 311 Day and the new album, and I cannot wait for either! 311 Day 2014 is going to be absolutely AMAZING! =D

2 words….COMPLETELY ADDICTED!

It was so exciting listening to the new song for the first time! There was so much to take in on the first listen–there were so many different styles and transitions, while trying to comprehend the lyrics at the same time. My first impression was that the song was definitely interesting, had potential, and I couldn’t wait to listen to it again!

Needless to say, it’s been on repeat since about 6:30 p.m., and it’s 12:15 a.m. now…I suppose I should try to go to bed, but I can’t stop listening to this song!!!! AHHHHH! Cannot wait to hear the rest of the album!! <3

Of course I’ll analyze the crap out of the song…but I’ll have to wait til tomorrow :)

Congratulations to Rebecca Fernandez, winner of November’s 11-Day Trivia! Rebecca has won a frosted holiday-themed 311 shot glass. :)

My apologies for originally posting “Omaha Stylee” instead of “Random.” I need to be more careful!

The answer was “Rude boy.” I’m not sure why, but I always remember Nick wearing that shirt. Thanks to Pete Stampfel for the photo! This was taken back in the summer of 2006. I also remember Nick wearing this tour on a spring tour, I believe, in 2008 perhaps.

It looks like 311 is already taking new promo photos…most likely for the new album.
I really like this look!!

It turns out the band’s longtime friend, Brian Bowen Smith, was shooting the photos. Remember the trailer park-looking hick with the bad teeth and cut off jean shorts from ETSD that introduced the band? That’s him! =)
