    Idk the exact timing but they def tacked on the Feldy shit at the very end. I wouldnt be surprised if that happened in Jan Feb 2017. Then released TMTT in March and then they made the dumb decision to promote it for 3 fucking months!

    We already know The Gene will be a title, but is that for the album or a song?

    Because lately it seems The Convo is sounding more and more likely to be a real title.

    I've felt it since the pre-Mosaic period, but over the last few decades the ups and downs and WTFs made me realize - being a 311 fan is more like being a sports fan that any other band I can think of.

    You think you know the decisions that need to be made to be successful. Sometimes they do it, usually they don't. They make baffling decisions that sound ridiculous - sometimes they are disasters, sometimes it works out and you don't really understand how.

    It's often just a frustrating situation because all you can do is watch, for better or worse.

    Also, we give way too much time, money, and emotional involvement. Those tour sports logo shirts are making more and more sense.

    It’d have been kind of creepy recording Chad with our phones without him knowing and then posting that on the internet. And if we had asked to record then have that conversation he wouldn’t have been so candid with us.

    This was after the SLC show last tour.

    Plus they had a coked-out malcontent as a co-producer chugging that album along. I would dig a Fall release. Getting weary of summer albums just for the sake of them being out for the summer tour. They can push out a handful of singles in the summer to play and then drop THE GENE in September/October and I’d be a happy customer.

    That just doesnt add up and makes even less sense that they'd do that

    It was at the very end, but it was like a 2-3 month timeframe at the end of 2016. Feldy entered the picture in October and I remember P-nut tweeting around new years that at least recording was wrapped. Mixing probably followed in early 2017.

    The impatient part of me agrees, but typically most albums do fall into that range of being released. When you take into account mixing, promotional work, distribution, etc it’s not uncommon for an album to be released 6 months after its recorded. Although you could get it out sooner if you rushed it. If they were smart though, they could have the title, cover, and packaging done ahead of time so once the album is mixed you wouldn’t have to waste time figuring that shit out. I feel like they wait for it to get done and then figure out the rest when there’s no logical reason they couldn’t just do it simultaneously.

    It took that long to get enough pics to create that shitty cover.

    It took so long for Mosaic to drop not because of tacking on the Feldy tracks or getting pics for the shitty cover. It was because Nick couldn’t find a ride home because all his boys were hanging outside the bar watching all the girls double down on the boulevard.
