“The day I was born I was born free and that is my Privilege.”

Cartwheel for Incubus’s Greatest Hits Album Early Next Year!

Hello my fine, feathered friends. I trust the Holidays are treating you all well and that our recent bouts with good news in the world of Politics haven’t stirred your cynicism too much but instead gotten you all in the hopeful spirit of giving and brotherly love! I am writing you today to bring word from that strange island in the sea called Incubus.

We are currently pooling our collective ideas, knocking the dust off of the gears, and reconvening in Los Angeles this month to create and compile what will be our newest offering into the world of illegal downloading! In short, we are releasing our first Greatest Hits album. Yes, we know that that officially means we are not a new band anymore, and that we are in fact getting old. If Incubus were a character in a famous Vladimir Nabokov novel, we would play the role of the creepy, aging Father figure: obsessed with our new wife’s teenage daughter and hell bent on winning her over with trifles and sweet talk. Or, better yet, if Incubus were one of the Harry Potter novels, we’d be the one where Harry finally makes out with Cho Chang! A few significant novels into the unfolding plot, but leaving the reader with a sneaking suspicion that the best has yet to come. Scratch that Nabokov reference, it’s borderline inappropriate. The Harry Potter one hit the nail on the head!

It looks as if the Greatest Hits will have a few new tracks on it and that it will be ready to steal around Spring of 2009! So in the interim, have a wonderful Holiday season! Remember that it’s the thought that counts and not how much you spend. Hugs are better than drugs and they’re cheaper! Making love is far healthier than waging war, and it’s certainly more fun. Anyone who claims to have all the answers is most deserving of skeptical inquiry. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, but teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Unless that fish is contaminated with Mercury. Then you just screwed that guy. Change your underwear at least twice a week, chew your food thoroughly, wipe front to back, measure twice and cut once, leaves of three, let ’em be! Leave of four… you get the idea. Lastly, a warm and sincere thank you to all of you who have been onboard with us for so long. Sharing our music with you has been a privileged occasion! And I thank all of you on behalf of this band. Here’s to another year of art, music, travel and discovery. All our love. Take care of yourselves and each other out there.

Happy Holidays,

I care little on the buzz  about Incubus’s getting old as a band thus the fear of them disbanding or even retiring. Let’s just live by the moment.  This news is just enough to put me in trance again.

Can’t wait! =)

Hmmm. What are thoughts as far as whether with a GH album will also mean a tour?

I need to see them live. Every chance I’ ve had has been royally mucked up in some fashion or another and I have solemnly sworn that the next time they tour, I will remove a limb and sell it on the black market to see them if that’s what it comes to.

I’m hoping it will be sooner than later and it won’t take a full-length original LP to get them back on the road….

Hola, Hilikus. Yeah, it would be great if they would be on tour to promote their upcoming GH album. =) I guess the date of the release would be March 29th. I am not sure, but I know I read it from an article somewhere.

I’ve seen them perform live — yehey — but I was not that close to the stage. I swear to be on the front seat whenever they come here again or if I’ve got a chance to be in their concert someplace else. =)
