311’s “Uplifter”



Twelve years after its breakout album, “Transistor,” invaded the mainstream and turned frontman Nick Hexum into a ’90s star, 311 is proving it still rocks. The punk-ska-reggae band’s new album “Uplifter” — its first since 2005 — debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in June, and the group just wrapped a successful summer “Unity” tour with Ziggy Marley and The Expendables.

SA Martinez and P-Nut talk about “Uplifter,” how to pull off reggae stylings “with a straight face,” and why long careers are “sexy.”
