For 311, it’s really all about creating the best music and experiences to nurture the band’s die-hard community of fans, as illustrated by recent 311 stories at NPR’s “All Things Considered” and Stereogum.
“The MOSAIC album cover captures the spirit of the collective nature that is 311–band & fans together to form something greater than the sum of its parts,” said NICK HEXUM, frontman, singer and guitar player for 311 when the band announced their 12th studio album earlier this year. The cover is comprised of nearly 10,000 photos submitted by 311 fans (check out the interactive pan & zoom mosaic here). In that same spirit, 311 reveal today the music video for their newest single “’Til The City’s On Fire” which was compiled from fan video submissions and live footage along the band's Summer tour.

“Since the Music album we were one of the first rock bands to drop 808's, samples and chopped vocals into the mix. We've gotten away from that lately, but this song really is influenced by the latest production techniques coming out of both Jamaica and the EDM scene,” states HEXUM about “’Til The City’s On Fire.” "I would say it's the most club-oriented tune we've done."
"It's about getting messed up on a Friday night. Pure and simple,” he adds.
