pulse big 311 announces new album, Universal Pulse

We’re still waiting on word of the lineup for 311’s Pow Wow Festival (The Dirty Heads and future 311 tourmates Sublime with Rome have been announced), but the reggae-fused rockers have already given fans something else to look forward to this summer. Their tenth studio album, Universal Pulse, will drop July 19th via ATO Records. The band just revealed the above Photoshop-fiasco album art via their Facebook page.

Not much is known about the album, save that it will be produced by the same man who took the title on their last effort, Bob Rock. Only 8 tracks made the final list, making Universal Pulse the band’s shortest record to date. No full tracklist has been confirmed yet, though “Timebomb” and “Wild Nights” were previewed on the band’s Caribbean Cruise back in March. The first single, “Sunset in July,” has been announced for a June 14th debut.

Keep it here for that track and the full listing as it becomes available. For now, put a note on July 19th in your iCal, and check out 311 on tour beginning July 6th.
