311’s “Sunset in July” - New Song and Video

[14 June 2011]

By William Carl Ferleman

311 will tour this summer in the U.S., and plan to drop a new album, Universal Pulse, on the 19th of July. The band has released some sort of a video for the single “Sunset in July”. I’m guessing this one’s for the bona fide followers.
