311 vocalist, Nick Hexum says: “We’re super excited for Unity Tour 2013! We had a blast touring with Cypress Hill in ’96 and with G Love in ’03…and we’re really glad we can all hit the road together this summer. Will make for a killer show. Lots of sick hip-hop beats and summertime grooves. Gonna be fun!”
