311 already announced plans to hit the touring circuit this summer and now it looks like they’ll have a new set of tunes to bring on the road. On Friday (April 12), the Nebraska-founded band confirmed the forthcoming release of their 13th studio album. Titled Voyager, the new studio effort is due out June 28 through BMG.
“Our albums have become almost like a captain’s log documenting our band’s ongoing voyage through musical styles, while also capturing our feelings and life experiences,” vocalist/guitarist Nick Hexum explains in a press statement.
“With each album, 311 continues to voyage, explore and push our musicality into new dimensions.”
He adds: “I think this album is very eclectic, from simple songs to wild studio adventures that get into weird, stoney outer-space material. It’s another step forward for us and we love the adventure, love the journey, love the process and we can’t wait for people to hear it.”
Voyager is the follow-up to 2017’s Mosaic.
The upcoming album, which features 13 new tracks, finds the band enlisting pop-punk super-producer John Feldmann and longtime collaborator Scotch Ralston to produce the album; Feldmann produced four tracks while Ralston produced the other nine.
In addition to the new album announcement, the band also released two new tracks from Voyager: “Good Feeling” and “Don’t You Worry.”

If that wasn’t enough, 311 also revealed that everyone who pre-orders the album is automatically eligible to win numerous 311 prizes including concert tickets, meet & greet passes, handwritten lyrics, autographed goods, and more.
311 previously announced plans to embark on a massive summer tour alongside the Dirty Heads. The 34-stop trek begins on July 2 at the Rose Music Center at The Heights in Huber Heights, Ohio and concludes on Aug. 20 at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City.
