Incubus will release their fourth album, Morning View, on October 23rd. Working once again with producer Scott Litt, the band told Rolling Stone that the new material is “some of the heaviest music we’ve ever written, at the same time some of the most beautiful we’ve ever written.”
A video shoot for the first single, “Wish You Were Here,” is planned for next month, and there will be pressure for Incubus to outdo themselves, as their video for “Drive” (from 1999’s Make Yourself) is up for Best Group Video at September’s MTV Video Music Awards.
For the remainder of summer, the band will continue to play various festivals, including Moby’s Area: One tour and the Rolling Rock Town Fair. Incubus will kick off their own North American tour in the fall, with brief stops scheduled in Japan and Australia during mid-August. Hoobastank and One Side Zero will be on several legs as support acts.
