Last year, guitarist and singer Nick Hexum took his first real break from 311 in 25 years by forming The Nick Hexum Quintet. The group released a well-received album titled My Shadow Pages that mixed even more musical styles together than his genre-blurring day-job band usually does.

"I needed to take a detour for a while, and the Quintet was the perfect move for me," Hexum explains. "We did a lot of light, funky stuff, and then I was able to get back into some heaviness with 311. It's good to keep another avenue open. If I'm working on something and 311 isn't feeling it, I'll have that other outlet. It just means more music for the fans."
