As the title suggests, the band's new album is an uplifting collection of 311's trademark blend of rock & reggae; elevated by inspired songwriting, dynamic musicianship and big anthemic choruses.
A deluxe edition of Uplifter will include a special DVD documentary, "The Road to 311 Day," directed by Wayne Price. The documentary, including interviews, backstage footage and live performances, follows the band and their fans for the week leading up to the 3-11 Day concert event in New Orleans in 2008.
311 have also announced the dates for their spring tour, and their annual summer Unity Tour. The spring shows kick off on April 15 in Tucson, AZ and will wrap in Springfield, MO on May 15.
Their Unity Tour '09, will feature special guest Ziggy Marley and will hit amphitheatres nationwide, launching in Santa Barbara, CA on June 5 and wrapping in Irvine, CA on July 12. Tickets for the spring tour are available now; with Unity Tour tickets going on sale later in the month.
