I think the dual headlining is great if you're into both bands but if not I can see why you're not interest. But it's really just a sad sign of the times with rock/metal music not being as (for lack of a better word) popular.

About time incubushq had a face lift, and even some news on it! enjoyincubus was so good when morning view was coming out. As much as I want to hear the album today, I really hope that incubus manage to keep a lid on it and nothing leaks and we get this album, how they intend us too and like we used too.

I'm going to try and avoid leaks. That was my plan with If Not Now, When, but when it leaked three months ahead of the release I knew I wouldn't be able to resist it for three months. If it leaks I'll probably avoid any Incubus-outlet for a while, to not see anyone comment on what a song sounds like.

Do albums still leak like they used to? I remember it being inevitable, but it seems like times have changed a bit. I dont really hear about leaks anymore.

True, it hardly ever happens anymore that albums leak months beforehand.

Good point there. Also people nowadays prefer to travel to music festivals instead of going to a headlining show. A little while ago somebody here mentioned that and it is true. Maybe these co-headlining tours are so often now because of that.

Music Festivals are overrated imo. Too expensive and bad sound quality.

From my perspective, I don't see people looking past headlining shows for festivals. I just think there is an over-saturation of festivals as it stands now. Every other week, it seems like someone is promoting another one. Problem is, for my money, at least, if there aren't literally 5-7 bands minimum that I care about, it's not worth going, which sucks if the festival is a particular band's only stop on a given tour.

You also need to consider that from a band-promoting point of view, festivals make way more sense. Festivals are usually visited by teenagers and students (at least in my experience), so say from 15-23. Considering Incubus was at the height of their popularity when Morning View came out, so say 2001-2002, that means that most people going to festivals were either not even born when Incubus was big or were way too young to know about them. So in terms of exposure it makes sense.

I think that through being so involved in band news and every detail, we often forget that the band is really not as big as we think anymore.

Both really valid points and when I was younger I used to go to a lot more festivals, and now days its rare that there is enough bands in a line up to make me want to pay the ticket prices. I'm pretty lucky that most bands will most likely play a show in London, specially if they've travelled from the states :)

I don't think the Jimmy Eat World tour is a co-headline. It says Incubus WITH Jimmy Eat World. A co-headlining tour would say Incubus & JEW or Incubus/JEW. Maybe I'm wrong but that's the way I read it. Jimmy will probably get a 45 min/hour special guest slot and Incubus will get as long as they want.

Does anyone think they'll do anything special for the S.C.I.E.N.C.E. 20 year anniversary?

Yeah, I really have no clue how big Jimmy Eat World are in the States. I think a lot bigger than in Europe, but do/did they ever come close to Incubus at their height? Nicubus is right: Incubus isn't big anymore either. They aren't exactly relevant, nor do they have the continues respect of music fans like Red Hot Chili Peppers or Pearl Jam have.

It would suprise me if Jimmy Eat World played an equal amount of time as Incubus on this tour. Incubus will be the closer for sure.

As for the SCIENCE anniversary, I doubt it, they haven't done anything like that for any of their albums. I wouldn't be surprised if the SCIENCE-slot in the setlist will be filled with a more surprising track than Vitamin/Green, since Mike has been digging into SCIENCE for his tutorials and the fact that they played Calgone, teased New Skin and soundchecked Nebula during the last tour.

I don't mind the co-headlining deal (the Incubus/Deftones tour was a dream show for me), but I have even less interest in seeing Jimmy Eat World than I did Linkin Park, and I ended up skipping that show altogether, because I couldn't justify paying for a more expensive ticket than a normal Incubus show to either see a band I have no desire to see, or walk out halfway through a concert.


I felt similarly but Linkin Park surprised me, I thought they were great. I ended up seeing them with Rise Against a few years later and I don't regret it. So who knows.

One look at the setlist should be enough: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/incubus/2 ... 5249b.html

Rogues, Pendulous, Make Yourself, Idiot Box, Have You Ever, Mexico, When It Comes, Priceless and Surface To Air in one set, plus all the big hits. Makes you wonder why the setlists from the 2015-tour seemed so boring in comparison. It can be done: a setlist that pleases hardcore-fans and casual-fans.

Wow that's a dream one. Can you send the recording ? We transfer or anything ? Don't think I've heard Consequence or When it Comes live recently ...

I remember having a conversation with you Jelger after the London show in 2015 about how boring the setlists looked in comparison to how enjoyable the gig actually was. It was a really weird tour in the fact the setlists were nowhere near interesting yet the band were actually on fire.
