Ernie Ball artists 311 are celebrating the anniversary of the release of their Soundsystem record, which dropped 17 years ago today. The follow up to 1997’s Transistor, the band’s fifth record was released on October 12, 1999 and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, peaking at #9 on the Billboard 200 chart.

“…they offer their most ambitious fusion yet — each track is a whirlwind tour of their soulful influences.” — Rolling Stone

The record produced two hit singles, “Come Original” and “Flowing.” Watch the video for the latter below.
