Not sure if this is going to bumped because it's been said already, but Renman just posted that he's retiring from being Incubus' manager.

Sad.

At least it's not on bad terms... it just sounds like he needs to do his side project full time, and to be honest, that's awesome. More power to him! I think it's awesome that he's got the passion and drive he has. But yeah, I agree it's lame that he won't be applying it toward Incubus anymore.

This is Sad. It was an amazing 9 year ride for me.

Thanks for all the memories Steve and wish you the best!

I have a lot of my mind in regards to this sudden news. I hope we find out more soon because this is very concerning on so many levels.

Yeah that was very sudden, and did not mention the future of Incubus at all.

Sometimes needs to drop a line to Brandon if they see him after one of the SotS gigs.

Cheers Steve. Thanks for everything.

This does seem abrupt. I would like a little more word on this, I am concerned as well.

For sure a sad moment, everyone can agree the band couldn't have had a better manager throughout all the years. Renman M&B was and is a fantastic idea, and I'm glad to see he'll be putting his full efforts into such a unique resource. Thanks Steve for all you've done, and we'll definitely miss your presence with the band.

I'm very surprised that not one member of the band has had anything to say yet. I would have thought that they would have already prepared statements prior to Ren announcing he was leaving.

While I am concerned by this news, it also isn't a huge surprise. Ever since he started his own website, he seemed more passionate about that than the band. Much like the members actually.

That none of the members has said anything yet, is surprising like Chris said. But perhaps this news has come as a blow to them too.

Of course, Rennie did an outstanding job. We as fans and the band couldn't have wished for a better manager.

That really came out of nowhere. Ren was an amazing manager and he did so much for the band and the fans that it's really sad to see him leave.

But now I'm really curious to see what the band says. Ren's retirement surely isn't helping the gloomy outlook a lot of us have on the bands future.

I just want a clear statement from the band. Even if it is not what I want to hear. It is all speculation now, and the departure of the manager that helped them so much in getting this far certainly doesn't help.

Just say: we are done, we don't feel it anymore. Or say: we are figuring out how we want to continue with a new manager, a label or not. Or say: this is what we are going to do this year.

But don't leave us in the dark like this.

Incubus is in a weird situation now. I hope they can continue doing their thing with a different band manager. If they do, it will certainly be different than it was with Rennie. He helped them so much, I think. Steve's just an amazing marketing guy. He got their name out there.

This is sad news and Renman was an amazing manager for sure! Probably one of the best in the game. It definitely makes me think for the worst for incubus. No label and no manager :/

On the flip side of it all, maybe when incubus properly get back together and they find a new manager that has a fresh spark and direction for it all. coupled with a good label, it all could turn around really well. Fingers crossed.

Who knows, obviously I hope incubus continue their journey! But this news is sad.

Great manager indeed (at least for fans). Just hope he left on good terms. Ren is a bit older... maybe hes at a place where he wants to be done with the touring and enjoy his success with his family.

Maybe incubus is just too inactive to justify paying him what he wants/deserves. Either way it is a sad day indeed. I hope this doesn't reflect the future of incubus itself. Because this really seems like it could be the end of all our favorite bands existence. :/

I mean why would Rennie quit if the band had plans to make an album or even tour this year. My guess is that the band may have agreed to take another year off being active. It only makes financial sense for Steve to move onward..

I think I would be devastated if incubus breaks up anytime soon.

Wow, Renman is a very energetic outspoken teammate for Incubus, shame to see him leave.

They just posted about the upcoming shows of SOTS on the incubus' facebook page... it's kinda weird that they haven't said anything about Steve's departure yet. Hope they will eventually tell the fans what the future for the band will be.

This all seems weird.

Renman telling us via Facebook that he is leaving leads to the conclusion that the band has no future plans at least for this year. No studio time, no tours or anything regarding the band Incubus.

On the other side we see Ben telling us that he will be opening up for Brandons SotS shows.

Brandon telling us that he will be coming to Europe with his art ...

craaaaazy ...

One thing that makes it a bit more normal, the band has never been really open about departures. We never knew how the break with Alex went down and we know things about lyfe's departure only because he flipped completely. And to me Rennie was as much part of the band as any of the members
