After being busy with their tour and not releasing a new studio album since 2005, rockers have announced that they will be dropping the follow up to "" soon. The band confirmed the news in an interview with MTV stating that after finishing their current tour, they will hit the studio and continue the work on their new LP that has started since 2007 and plan to drop it in early 2009.
On the new album that is being produced by renown music producer Bob Rock, the band confirmed that they will return to their musical roots. Explaining the plan, 311's drummer Chad Sexton told MTV, "We've experimented a lot in recent years and shifted this way and that way, and with the current climate out there, with record sales, it could be a coincidence that [our sales] just went down, down, down because of the Internet, or maybe we've been too experimental. Maybe we should get back to the basics - the 311 basics."
