But they are no longer with Sony, so those heads rolled a bit too late ;)

I'm very conflicted now. If it leaked tonight, one one hand I'd say: fuck it, I'm downloading it. On the other, I'd think: I've held out this long, without snippets, why not wait another day?

About the leaks, It should be available tomorrow in the afternoon because countries like New Zealand or Australia will have access to the download earlier than us.

But I'm for the waiting, I want to get it in my hands before listening to it. I'm a cd and vinyl fetish, I hate the whole leaks fuck.

You guys...in HOURS we'll have a brand new Incubus album!!! I don't think it's really hit me how exciting this is. So pumped to talk it about it with all of you.

My ranking of the 4 songs released:
Glitterbomb
State of the Art
Undefeated
Nimble Bastard (album cut)

These sound awesome with headphones.

4/21...can't wait!
5.11.02 - 7.27.03 - 6.28.04 - 6.29.04 - 1.29.07 - 8.6.07 - 8.8.07 - 8.10.07 - 8.4.09 - 8.8.09 - 9.4.11 - 9.10.11 - 9.11.11 - 5.13.12 - 5.16.12 - 8.7.15 - 8.8.15 - 7.20.17

I've been holding out too, well, other than NB and Glitterbomb. No snippets, SOTA, or Undefeated.

My plan was the wait for the vinyl but given that 4/21 is the ship date and not the arrival date I will probably stream the album on Spotify Friday.

Can't wait.

Kudos to all of you that stayed snippet-free for this long. I wish I had that much self control. The leaks are just like movie trailers for me..they don't spoil my experience too much, they just get me more excited for what's coming. Release Day is SO CLOSE, you guys! Ahhhh!!

I've listened to snippets few hours ago and they are all great except for one :P that 1950's parody thing, what a waste of space on the album IMO.

I've cheated a bit with the snippets in the Facebook 'A conversation about 8'-videos. The riff in No Fun reminded me of Privilege. Tomorrow can't come soon enough, even if it's a straightforward rock album with less experimentation.

I just saw someone posted a screencap of the back of the CD released in Japan.

There is an acoustic 'Nimble Bastard', boys and girls. ACOUSTIC!

DYING. TO. HEAR. IT!!

Im guessing that's another Japanese only bonus track, they always have something.

Yes, Nimble Bastard Acoustic is the Japanese bonus track. So far no other bonus on any other edition has been announced.

Hey guys, so is that Chino song and Skrillex one on the album or not? Because it doesn't seem so after reading some reviews. When is that track going to be released?

Anyone feel like editing and adding more to this bad boy? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_(Incubus_album)

I just fixed the track list and added the album artwork. Surprised the label don't have Wikipedia people, it does pop up early in search engines.

It's not. They didn't have time to finish it in time, but they intent on releasing it later.

I never get that decisions. I mean that collaboration could clearly boost the album sales. What are these people thinking is beyond me. But I don't really care about the numbers. So far I like all the snippets and the songs released and they all sound better than the last long play album.

There was no time. It's a very bad business decision to delay an album because of one collab. Do you realise how much that will cost band and label for rescheduling etc.? And I hardly think a collab with Chino would boost album sales at all. Album sales are irrelevant nowadays.

Another review: http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/mu ... 1.13494061

Pretty positive, but again all that praise for Undefeated. I don't get it.
