Following last weekend’s show-stealing headline performance at KROQ’s Weenie Roast in Southern California, multi-platinum rock band 311 is giving fans another sneak peek at upcoming album VOYAGER (BMG) with today’s release of new track “What The?!”
"’What The?!’ is 311 in full jam band mode,” says lead singer Nick Hexum. “This one is super fun to play live with lots of tasty riffs from the mind of Tim Mahoney. He does some ripping soloing in this one. Lyrically, it’s a grab-bag of random stream-of-conscience mostly from SA. It’s about navigating life's travails to find the sweet stuff. Looking forward to playing this one under the stars!“
What The?!” follows recently released tracks “Good Feeling,” “Don’t You Worry” and “Crossfire” and all four songs are available as instant downloads by clicking HERE to pre-order VOYAGER ahead of its July 12th release.
In addition, everyone who pre-orders the album direct from the band’s store is automatically eligible to win numerous 311 prizes, including concert tickets, meet & greet passes, handwritten lyrics, autographed goods, etc.
VOYAGER is 311’s 13 studio album and features (appropriately enough) 13 new songs - four of which were recorded with Grammy-nominated producer John Feldmann (Blink-182, Panic! At the Disco) and nine of which were recorded with Scotch Ralston, who produced 311 albums Transistor, Soundsystem and Stereolithic.

(2) Don’t You Worry
(4) Space and Time
(5) Dream State
(6) Good Feeling
(7) What The?!
(8) Better Space
(9) Dodging Raindrops
(10) Rolling Through
(11) Born to Live
(12) Charge It Up
(13) Lucid Dreams
