311 to release new album in March

* 311 will release their 11th album Tuesday, March 11th and it'll be the first release on the band's own label, 311 Records. The currently untitled album is follow-up to 2011's Universal Pulse. Longtime 311 producer Scott Ralston worked with the band on the new album and mixed the disc alongside 311 drummer Chad Sexton. The album will be distributed by INgrooves/INresidence. The band will celebrate the release with a concert in New Orleans on 311 Day, which will also commemorate the first 311 day held on March 11, 2000.

* Local music fans have until the end of Christmas Eve to reserve their copy of Hear Nebraska's latest local music compilation. Hear Nebraska: Volume 2 features 10 songs by Omaha and Lincoln bands and is being pre-sold via Kickstarter.com. Hear Nebraska already met their initial fundraising goal of $4,000 to pay for a run of 500 vinyl copies of the compilations. Any additional funds will be put towards future Hear Nebraska programming and funding the Nebraska music website's continued operations.
