311 will unleash their 13th studio album, “Voyager,” this summer

311 is back with a new album. The upcoming, 13th studio release from the Omaha alternative rock band will be named “Voyager” and hit stores on June 28.

In advance of the new album, the guys have released two new songs from the upcoming set. The tracks, called “Good Feeling” and “Don’t You Worry,”  are available now via digital download.

“I think this album is very eclectic, from simple songs to wild studio adventures that get into weird, stoney outer-space material,” says frontman Nick Hexum of Voyager. “It’s another step forward for us and we love the adventure, love the journey, love the process and we can’t wait for people to hear it.”

As for the two newly-released songs, Hexum says of “Good Feeling” that the song is about “the best stuff in life; celebrating joy with loved ones.” He adds that it’s “an antidote to all the fear, anger, and division so prevalent in society today.”

“Don’t You Worry,” Hexum says, centers around “how a friend should react when we sense someone is going through a hard time: ‘Don’t You Worry, you can count on me to help you through your dark hours.’ It’s a song validating personal connection and leaning on one another to turn things for the better.”

“Voyager will mark 311’s follow-up to 2017’s “Mosaic.”

In other news, 311 will set off on a North American summer tour to promote “Voyager” with support from Dirty Heads and The Interrupters in July. Find the band’s upcoming tour dates here.
