    I’m not quite sure I get your idea of deciding on the songs ahead of time. Pretty much for mosaic they had two separate batches of songs they recorded at different times, but i’m not sure how that makes this go around more interesting. We don’t realky know what songs they’ve decided on or not, there still could very well be b sides or bonus tracks.

    Wait, what do you mean they decided on the songs ahead of time? Are you just saying that you find it interesting that they're recording everything at once rather than here and there? If that is what you're saying, where did you get that information?

    There really is nothing saying that the entire album is being recorded right now. Only that these batch of songs are being recorded. All we know is that Pnut and Nick both said they hit a wall and they were taking a break along with the info from The Covo. It seems that the break has ended and they are working again. There’s nothing saying that they didn’t have anything with Scotch recorded prior to hitting the wall or that they don’t have more that they need to record.

    If there is any silver lining to be had from Feldys involvement is that it seemed to energize Nick and inspire him to be more productive. I think it’s unlikely that only applies to the music he was working on with Feldy, which could be why they may have more songs ready for recording than previously.

    So no one knows anything new yet and we're all just guessing/assuming about what they're doing and what they've done. :p

    We're like crazy people in a cave following the sounds of our own echoes as they lead us deeper into the cave and further from sanity.

    I mean it is kind of what we do here.

    If you want to save 15% on car insurance switch to Geico. If you want to wildly speculate on 311s new music go to the bb, it’s what you do

    Our very own @parkerthegreat and @Sharkey met up with Chad after a show where he gave insider trading information about the new album.

    You guys are right - we don't know for sure if they're recording the full album now, or if they already had some finished prior to these recording sessions.

    In this barely audible vid from December 2, 2018, Nick and P-Nut say (in the first 2 minutes of the video) that the songs are written and rehearsed for the new album. I took that to mean all of the songs, but yeah, he could just be talking about the last batch. I can't think of anything they've said suggesting they had any recorded, finished songs already, but they may. They also said in this video that the drums have been recorded for several songs, and P-Nut is up next to record the bass, except a few places where Tim records guitar before P-Nut.

    Pnut tweeted a reply he was doing a miT jam today.


    So P-Nut had 4 songs from this session in the can by mid-December, and has done at least one other day, possibly making that 6 songs so far. We know Nick (and P-Nut) worked on at least 2 songs with Feldmann about a year ago. Those may not be on the new album at all, though, and it's not clear the rest of the band ever recorded anything for them (my guess is no).

    Was cranking out some new ideas in my hotel room yesterday. #OnARoll

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 16 Sep 2017
    Had a good session Thursday recording @pnut. Laying down some song ideas. #StrengthInNumbers

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 16 Sep 2017
    Yes it's true I am at two hours and counting making a demo using Garage Band on my iPad. They've added lots to that app. [plane emoji] entertaiment

    My answer for today was play bass for four and one half hours

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 29 Nov 2017 (Ode to Summer?)
    Fun times in the studio with @pnut and @JohnFeldy . He has it freezing in here so I’m wearing a blanket.

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 31 Jan 2018
    Cutting vocals as the sun sets. This song is trippy yet heartfelt. @JohnFeldy

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 20 Mar 2018
    Same for me. Except the @311 music I’m putting on was written yesterday. New music coming!

    Nick Hexum @NickHexum 26 Apr 2018
    And in case anyone thinks I'm slacking by watching ball in the middle of the day, I was just taking a break from cutting a vocal cuz dude was blowing leaves outside! haha

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 26 Sep 2018
    Had a really good band meeting yesterday where we decided on a path to continue the record. We’re super psyched! Not going to rush tho. Sorry that our earlier estimates were a bit too ambitious. Creativity and quality is top priority. Thanks for patience! #311

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 19 Oct 2018
    Went running today and had an idea that I'm really excited to demo up. I probably look weird stopping to sing into my phone but that's ok. It's only mountain lions watching.

    (Someone suggested he use the mountain lions sounds in the demo.)

    Nick Hexum‏ @NickHexum 19 Oct 2018
    thank you for the suggestion. the mountain lion sounds are working nicely. not sure what they were doing when the clip was recorded but it sounded fun

    ^Not sure how serious that was, but hey.

    So that was probably entirely unnecessary but that's what I could find from social media

    Short Version: Chad basically said Feldy is way too into hot stanky pop garbage music and that's not the 311 way and he urged the band to not make a perfect mistake by releasing more TTCOF's - Chad was against bad music - so they slowed down and re-started the writing process

    Chad told those 2 what they wanted to hear. It may be his feelings as well but has little to bearing on what the band will ultimately do. After the "convo" Nick is on record talking about still working with Feldy so take the whole thing with a grain of salt. I'll be absolutely shocked if there isn't at least a smattering of Feldy here and there on the new album.

    Feldy has not at all been mentioned recently. I think the interview you’re referring to was probably recorded before the convo and just released afterwards because it was about the same time period, which was awhile ago now. That’s my theory if I had to guess. Also around that same time period, they said they were taking a step back to reevaluate things

    I'd also like to know where Nick talked about still working with Feldy after the convo. But I do agree, I'd be surprised if there's nothing Feldmann-related on the album at all. We'll see...
