311 Announces Unity Tour 2011, Release New Single

311In gearing up for their new album due mid-July, 311 has announced an extensive amphitheater tour about the U.S. The Unity Tour 2011 begins July 6th in Wichita, Kansas and will include support from Sublime with Rome, DJ Soulman, and DJ Trichrome. The schedule also has the band’s first 3-day 311 Pow Wow Fest, which has the group hosting acts ranging from the Deftones to G. Love.

The group’s new album, Universal Pulse, will be out July 19th. Until then, the group has released their first single, “Sunset in July.”

Bassist Aaron “P-Nut” Wills says their latest effort has a special vibe to it.

“This time it totally feels different,” the bassist told SoundSpike. “There’s something in the air, momentum-wise for us that feels like it hasn’t felt in a good bit… I think the songs are strong enough to support that kind of emotional parade and the summer is our time—especially for our diehard fans. Us going out with Sublime with Rome, us having done the cruise, another 311 day coming up. There’s a lot going on in 311-land. It seems like more people have their ear to what we’re doing in the present tense than maybe the last 10 years.”
