Evolver is an album by 311, released in 2003.
Evolver is 311's seventh overall major-label studio album and the second recorded in 311's recording studio The Hive in Burbank, California. Despite the success of the single "Creatures (For a While)" (which reached #3 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart) and positive reaction from their fanbase, Evolver became the first 311 album to not receive an RIAA certification.
