Legendary alternative rock band 311 will celebrate its milestone 25th year with a career-spanning Volcano Entertainment/Legacy Recordings 4-CD box set

311 – ARCHIVE commemorates the multi-platinum band's silver anniversary with an unprecedented four-disc 81 track compilation of unreleased songs, b-sides, bonus tracks, pre-production recordings, alternate versions & demos (see attached tracklisting). As if that weren't enough, 311 – ARCHIVE also features a 60-page book filled with rare photos, flyers, memorabilia, and artifacts from the bands personal collection.

"In preparing to make this Box Set, we took a trip through our own history and the history of our studio recordings from Music to Stereolithic," writes 311 in 311 – ARCHIVE's exclusive liner notes. "We felt that we didn't really need another 'Greatest Hits' compilation so we started searching for things we knew a true 311 fan would like to hear and see. While searching, it became clear that we were going to dive deep into the archives and uncover material that no one outside the band had ever laid eyes or ears on. It is our sincere hope that you will love this collection as much as we loved making it."  

Meanwhile, 311's US Summer Tour is set to get underway July 2nd at Scottsdale, AZ's Talking Stick Resort and continue through early August (see attached itinerary). Highlights include a special 4th of July weekend concert event at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Beach (July 3 and 4) where the band will play their triple-platinum "blue" album in its entirety.  In addition, 311 will make headline appearances at a number of upcoming spring festivals and radio events.

From their very first show in their native Omaha on June 10, 1990 (opening for Fugazi), 311 have been on an incredible, unstoppable journey, fueled by an instantly recognizable, genre-defying sound, non-stop touring, and a fiercely loyal fan base. The band's ingenious fusion of rock, reggae, hip-hop & funk – and tireless work ethic - saw them build an undeniable grassroots following.  Alternative radio and MTV soon followed.

1995's self-titled third album proved 311's breakthrough, earning RIAA 3x platinum certification while catapulting them to the forefront of alternative music. Since then, nine consecutive 311 studio releases – from 1997's Transistor to 2014's Stereolithic – have peaked within the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, with total album sales now approaching nine million in the U.S. alone. 311 is of course also responsible for a rightly renowned streak of radio hits, with nine singles reaching the Top 10 on Billboard's "Alternative Songs" chart, including the #1 classics, "Down," "Love Song," and "Don't Tread On Me."

Now based in Los Angeles, 311 is widely regarded as one of alternative rock's most inventive, entertaining, and hard-traveling live acts, earning them an incredible community of passionate and faithful fans.  Founded in 2004, the band's annual "Unity Tour" is now a summer tradition.  And the band has branded legendary destination events with their "311 Day" and "311 Caribbean Cruise" experiences.

311 is: singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer/DJ S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut.
