It's been some time since the last update from here at Incubus HQ, but never fear, Incufans: You haven't been forgotten. Things have been very busy for the band over the last few months, with the wrap-up of the first leg of their United States Tour and a bare few weeks' rest before Incubus went right back to the grindstone with the European leg.
Unfortunately, between scheduling conflicts and illnesses in the band--touring is hard work!--Incubus has been forced to postpone or cancel a handful of their concerts on the European leg. The Glasgow date on 11/11, the Munich Date on 11/22 and the Vienna Date on 11/23 were all either postponed or cancelled; the Munich and Vienna dates are offering full refunds on ticket prices through the point of purchase.
In better news, however, the band has announced that they will be playing the Silverlake Music Festival in Thailand in January, as well as announced dates in Japan, Australia and New Zealand. More recently they have announced that they will be playing the KROQ Almost Acoustic XMas (Night 1) in Los Angeles with 311, Bush, Chevelle, New Found Glory, Social Distortion, Young the Giant and Blink-182. The Almost Acoustic XMas is sold out for both nights, but residents in and near to Los Angeles can try to win tickets from KROQ's site: http://kroq.radio.com

Due to an unforeseen complication with the satellite backpack--it turns out the weather of the southeastern United States was not kind to it--Francisco Stiglich has been unable to continue the pre-show broadcasts on the Incubus Livestream. However, he has been filming behind-the-scenes gems from the guys as he tours with them. Most of them can be found either on his YouTube account or the band's account, and include things like Mike running through the bass riff of Speak Free (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCMRrEaTiJw) and Incubus practicing Surface to Air at one of their soundchecks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjCZE8eS3dc&feature=related). Cisco's YouTube is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/FranciscoStiglich while the official band YouTube can be found at: http://www.youtube.com/user/incubusTV.In addition the Livestream (http://bit.ly/incubuslive) is still up and running, with periodic fan takeovers and request nights for its massive video archive of over five hundred live recordings, interviews, and extras.
Incubus has remained active with interviews as they progress across Europe, many of which can be found on HQ's news aggregate, here: http://incubushq.com/profiles/blog/list?promoted=1
Although struggling through the perils of laryngitis and being far from home, Incubus is still going strong. With a little rest and a little luck, they'll be able to finish out their European tour with all the face-melting energy they've delivered at the shows they've already played this year. Thanks to all of you for your continued love and support!
