According to Billboard, the band has just inked a new record deal and they’re planning to issue two new EPs in 2015. Guitarist Mike Einziger told the site, “We’re planning on releasing two installments that will total an album — two EPs. We’re hoping to put out the first one in February or March, then the summer.”
Fans who caught the band this past weekend at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas show caught the first new song, ‘Trust Fall,’ from Incubus’ upcoming works. Einziger says, “It’s pretty indicative of where we are now. It’s pretty ambitious.”
The guitarist added that Incubus have a diverse collection of material, telling Billboard, “Most of the music we’ve written is high energy. But we’ve written our slowest song, but also our heaviest song.” The latter track he’s referring to is called ‘Make Out Party.’ Another song title revealed during the chat is ‘Dance Like You’re Dumb,’ a cut that Einziger described as “our version of a loud aggressive rock song. It’s definitely not what someone would expect from us.”
The group just inked a deal with Island Records, who will release the two EPs.
