It would be the first tour since 2004 they didn't do it. Seeing as they don't do many auctions or MYF fundraisers any more, I think the meet and greets are how they get pretty much all of MYF's donations.

Originally part of the ticket sales were going towards MYF as well, anybody know if thats still that case?

I had no idea about that. I always just assumed those drawings were done by Brandon and Jose.

I completely missed that post. Thats a shame, I love Light Grenades packaging. Always a shame that the Pendulous drawing was missing from it, with Light Grenades my favorite drawing.

But this isn't that, this sounds worse than a demo. It just sounds like someone who had no clue what they were doing mixed and mastered it.


I'd have to disagree with that, being someone who does record music and has audio engineer friends, it's not AS bad as you say, but I see where you're coming from. I think part of the problem is Brandon's voice has changed now that he's older, and I feel like we still try to compare it to his youthful days, even if just subconsciously. So no matter how they record it, it just sounds off. I feel like that might be the case, at least for me, because the music itself sounds fine for rock, it's just been the sound of his voice these past couple recordings that have bothered me. It just sounds boxy or distorted, and not open like past albums, which could be because of changes in his voice.

I do agree about the Bowl being a terrible place to see them, or really any show. Tickets are always way more expensive for comparable seats at other venues, parking sucks, sound sucks, semi decent seats cost a fortune and are near impossible to get anyways, and no pit. Even though that venue is the closest one to me, I'll be seeing them in Chula Vista/SD and making the pilgrimage to Red Rocks this year. Center, row 31! If there's still tickets left closer to, and I'm feeling it after the album drop, I'll get some cheap Bowl tickets.

I try to not pay attention to the comments the band get on social media but man they are getting attacked hard for that collaboration with Skrillex. I'm not a fan of that either but i still have hopes for them.

Have you guys noticed that Mike has been like the main guy since the promo for 8 started?

Some updates we know since this week:

- track with Skrillex apparently called No Fun
- they've been in the studio with Chino from Deftones, unsure if it's for the album

Yeah, that interview with Nikki Sixx was worth listening too, even if the host is so annoying. Brandon said a lot of good stuff. This was probably the least interesting part of the interview (and it's also not really news, right?)

As per Mike's instagram, the band is in a rehearsal studio.

And here's a new interview with Brandon, which suggests that the track featuring Skrillex is not No Fun, but Familiar Faces:

Another interview with Brandon, by Forbes. A good one. Some interesting bits:

Mikey and Ben came into full Mikey and Ben formation when we were writing this. Everything Mikey showed was like, “Check this out,” all these boner riffs. It was fun to hear what they kept coming up with over and over again.


Mikey and I have been talking a lot about it in the past few weeks as we’ve been finishing the record and talking to people a little bit about it and playing it for some close, trusted friends and that’s really where we keep landing, like, “Holy s**t, we have been a band for 26 years and we’re still in love with the process of making album.” As difficult as it can be sometimes it still, at the end of the day, brings a level of joy and creative satisfaction. I’m certain that the challenge inherent in writing music and writing original music and hopefully writing innovative music is something that keeps us coming back to the table.

Also interesting is that he does not mention Chino at all when specifically asked about other collaborations besides Skrillex.

Oh yeah, you're right. Didnt even realize that. It certainly does have something to do with Incubus though, since the picture is used on Incubus instagram. This interview could've been done before the session with Chino, since that happened in the past two-three weeks. Maybe its for a deluxe edition bonus track or something?

So apparently Boyd broke up with his gf and was an emotional wreck during the writing process of this new record. And here I thought those two would eventually marry.

And yeah, I think the Chino collab was a spur-of-the-moment thing.

Seems the latest studio sessions with Skrillex (and Chino?) Were for remixes.

EDIT: or for re-mixing the album. https://twitter.com/Beats1/status/839659531948998661

Did anyone catch Incubus on beats1?

WTF. Skrillex ended up CO-PRODUCING all of the songs? Uhhhhh. Didn't think he'd have THAT much of an influence over the album :s

Does anyone have a recording of the Beats interview?

Damn, they're really making it seem like this Skrillex collab/partnership is the greatest thing about 8. Mike bringing in his EDM friend/s into incubus was bound to happen with all the work he's been doing with them. Do they really think incubus fans are excited about Skrillex's involvement...?
