Did I miss something - is there any way to preorder a physical copy? Vinyl?

I've listened to the new song twice now, once with headphones and just, wow! I haven't banged my head to incubus like that(that bridge!) since '06. I've never actually rocked the headphones off of my head until now! lol

I've been able to listen to it. Definitely a new mix. Has clearer lyrics, and there are some added effects.

I'm actually not too sure how I feel about the new mix... Jose's kick seems a bit too punchy and the snare doesn't really seem to match it. The added effects also seem a bit unnecessary... I might be too accustomed to the previous mix though.
I have to be leaving, but I won't let that come between us.

Totally agree, I'm truly intrigued on how those 2 final songs will sound. Digging State of the Art and Love in a Time of Surveillance too.

Holy shit, that new mix gives the song a new perspective. Loving it. This album seems to be well aimed after all.

I like the new mix to NB, but I have to say I like the "dirtier" original version better. Just like the two different versions of Pantomime, I just feel the original is grungier and hits harder. Just my preference.

I see why people would like the new version better, though.

Man, I feel you there. Listening to the original NB, I just feel too used to it! Haha! And someone else pointed out the guitars needing more distortion- with you as well. Along with how Jose's drums got changed. Buuuuuuuuut, with that, can you imagine how the original mix for "Glitterbomb" would have sounded? I realllllllllly think Sonny put some shine on that song and I can't imagine it did anything except help it! I love the left ear stuff at the beginning! All the noises and effects sound fantastic! Mikey said this sounds like Incubus in 2017. The year sounds good on them so far! With people saying it has a darker tone, you get that from GB and I think if the rest of the album carries the same tone, it is going to be great!

Listened to both tracks in headphones, I cannot wait for this album. I wonder when the vinyl pre-order will be available.

Nope, still not working for me. Whatever, I'll buy it in stores when it comes out. Will have it sooner anyway (the pre-orders ship on release date) and no shipping costs.

So happy about the new mix, this is the song I wanted to hear. I HATED the old mix. I don't mind a more gritty or live sounding production (think crow recordings) but it just sounded bad to me (muffled / compressed) almost wild trapeze bad

Maybe skillrex is what the band needed after all lol

Looks like a lot of songs either changed titles or were left off (if you watched the NB video closely). I wonder if Firehouse Riff, Connect the Dots, Hovercraft, Atheder, etc. will ever see the light of day. Hopefully they don't circle back around and release a Deluxe version after some of us have already preordered.
