, Staff

311 frontman Nick Hexum has revealed plans for a winter tour with his new side project. Touring in support of their debut album My Shadow Pages, the Nick Hexum Quintet will make their way to Massachusetts for a performance at The Sinclair in Cambridge on Sunday, January 26. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $20.

Released in October, My Shadow Pages features Hexum with drummer Gary Novak (Alanis Morissette, George Benson, Chick Corea), Andrés Rebellón (a Colombian native Hexum discovered at a Musicians Institute audition), keyboardist Luke Miller (Phunkelotopus, New Soul Underground) and Nick’s guitar/sax/keyboard-playing brother, Zack Hexum (who has toured with Fitz & the Tantrums, performed with Michael Buble and composes music for film and television). The 13-track album was recorded and mixed by Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty). Lead single “Super Natural” is streaming below.

“This Nick Hexum Quintet album is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” explained Hexum in a press release. “It’s a passion project that allows me to spread my wings as a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist. I’m really excited for people to hear it.”

Hexum has assured fans that 311 remains his main priority and the band plans to release a new album in 2014.
