I was just getting ready to bang out this week's Update #6 when I saw this in my HQ Inbox. Another tidy update from our friend Lauren Clay. I feel a little guilty being so lazy but it would have taken me an hour to come up with something and it probably wouldn't have turned out so nice. My grandmother used to always say "don't kick a gift horse in the mouth" so I wont. Here's the weekly update courtesy of our Official HQ Reporter Lauren Clay.…Continue
I've said it many times before but it bears repeating here again. I believe that our Incubus fans are the greatest group of fans in the whole wide world. And I mean the whole wide world. This site has become a gathering point for our fans to meet, to interact, and to share their love of Incubus. But the fact is that long before the HQ there…Continue
I wanted to let you all know that I will be in NY for the upcoming premier of a new film I just scored.
It's a documentary about Ozzy! As many of you know, Incubus has a long history with the Osbourne family.
We did 2 Ozzfest tours (in 1998, and again in 2000) as well as an opening slot for the original Black Sabbath in 1999.
I also arranged and produced Kelly Osbourne's original cover of Madonna's Papa Don't Preach around that…

You can now access the chat in two places, one is under "Connect' in the above navigation, the other place is at the bottom of any IncubusHQ page. See below
Okay now on to the chat noise. It's…Continue
I don't know if any of you ever watched the old 70's TV show the "A Team" or not. You could google it I suppose. In the show the leader of the "A Team", Hannibal, had a great line that he used to say at the end of each successful mission. He'd light a cigar with a very satisfied look on his face, turn to his compadres, and say, "I love it when a plan comes together." That's how I feel this morning as I look back on the week's happenings.
This past Monday, the plan started to…Continue

We had a chance to sit down with Mike a few days and asked him to share his thoughts on the making of the new album "If Not Now, When?. This is the 2nd installment of that interview.…Continue
Wow. What a week! Things are starting to pick up pace now. I'm looking back at the calendar for the week making sure I did not miss something because its all been a blur. Meetings with the label, meetings with concert promoters, meetings with movie studio music supervisors, and even a couple of big radio programmers. Everybody wants to know what's the freakin plan Ren? When is the release date. What about the first single"? When can I hear it? I need the band here, I need them there. I can…Continue
One of the final pieces of this site has come together...it now has its very own proper domain name - www.incubushq.com
So, when you're inviting friends to the site, or tweeting about it etc, you can now direct them to www.incubushq.com
I've added a few more things to the site and the top navigation started to get a bit crowded, so I created some sub-categories.
You can now find HQ TV, pictures, and videos under the category called "Media" in the top nav. I think the term "media" adequately describes all that stuff, but if you think there is a better name let me know (leave a comment below).
We're planning on taking 'chat' off the front page and moving it to "Connect." …

Well its been another busy week in the Incubus world. For those of you who are interested in every detail of the recording process, the new album was mastered this week in the NY area and the final sequence of songs is now set. The band have started to work on artwork and album packaging ideas. Typically, these are the things that take some time and have a huge impact on release dates and the like.
