Over the weekend, guitarist Mike Einziger teased fans with an image from the studio featuring Sonny 'Skrillex" Moore and Deftones singer Chino Moreno. The Incubus co-founder simply wrote, 'Magic."
Now, Moore has given us our first taste of actual music. The 15-second clip features Skrillex, Einziger, and frontman Brandon Boyd singing chocolate chip karaoke to what appears to be the 'nu" Incubus-Skrillex collaboration. Check out the picture and studio footagehere.
Jake's friend got in touch with the duo and had requested the clip after he was forced to miss the group's London concert. Today the duo learned that Jake died a day after receiving their message.
"His dad thanked us for the message and I cried," Pall wrote. "Not only does this break our heart but it reminds of two valuable lessons; it's so easy to do little acts of kindness they can go such a long way, not only did this email exchange change our lives but we hope we brought happiness to one of his last moments. So today just think about how much better it is to go that little bit extra and do something positive." Read morehere.

Is "I'm Waiting For It" Lorde's new single, album, or just an acknowledgment that the singer knows we've been waiting a long time for new music? Her debut album Pure Heroine dropped back in 2013. Read morehere.
The four stood around the central microphone on a darkened stage and sang an a cappella version of the chorus before Stapleton stepped out onstage. The lights came up to reveal his presence and the crowd went absolutely nuts.
Stapleton showed off his incredible pipes, almost screaming some of the longer notes when he held them to achieve an emotional effect. The cover ventured off into jam territory with Little Big Town drawing out their vocals in place of rollicking guitar riffs.
After they finished "Tennessee Whiskey," Karen Fairchild opened up about their long relationship with Stapleton. "He used to open shows for us," she said. "We know how to pick 'em!" Watch the jamhere.
The country singer teamed up with director Ethan Lader (Bruno Mars, Wiz Khalifa, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey) for the comical clip which shows Eldredge distracted by a beautiful girl. As a result, he sets off a chain of hilarious unfortunate events in his neighborhood while he tries to chase down the girl of his dreams.
"I'm a real bad liar / I'm a burnt toast kind of guy 'er / If I try to build a fire, I'll burn the woods / I ain't a mover or a shaker / Can't keep up with the pacer/ Never met a dance floor that ever did me any good," he sings in the opening verse.
The one thing he is good at though, is making the girl smile. Watch as Eldredge's song comes to life in video formhere.
'These shows in the arenas are so loud and so wild," Gilbert says of the road. 'You almost can't hold that energy in the building, but come summer--when we take it outside--it's a whole other kind of deal when we get outside with the BG Nation."
The newly added dates begin June 2 in Florida and extend through Sept. 23 where Gilbert will be headlining his own tour as well as frequenting festivals throughout the country.
'There are so many different ways to do this come warm weather," Gilbert explains in a press release. 'And I like'em all. Festivals are just a party with a whole lotta music'There's not much more real--or more like where I come from--than a fair' and those amphitheater shows, well, that's where the BG Nation comes together to throw it down. You know, it's why when we take it outside, it's just good, and we have the party of the summer everywhere we go." See the dateshere.
Zach had this to say about the new group, "We have this thing, and I don't really know why, it's just a comfort level. We have this easy spirit with each other where I like hearing her sing, and I feel very comfortable proposing ideas."
Their new album was engineered by Logan Matheny at Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses's Fleetwood Shack studio in Nashville, TN. The album features Reynolds on bass, Seth Kauffman (Floating Action) on guitar, and Michael Libramento (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Natalie Prass) on drums. Get a taste of what is to come by streaming the track "Little Relief"here.
"Where did two years go? My angel is getting so big!" she wrote. "On one hand, it's so fun to see him learn and grow but on the other, it's all happening so fast! Happy birthday, little monkey!
"You are my world…my heart…and I thank God for you each and every day! The two years you have been on this earth have been the best of our lives! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!" See the photohere.
The group recorded the album at Ocean Studios in Burbank, CA with Grammy award-nominated multiplatinum producer, engineer, and mixer Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, M83, Jimmy Eat World).
The band had this to about the new effort "With this album we really wanted to challenge ourselves sonically, a natural progression from the EP. We made use of timeless analogue synth and experimented with other timbres to create something we are really proud of and can't wait for everyone to hear it." Read morehere.
In a Late Late Show segment featuring Nick Kroll and Jordan Peele, the CBS host took fans behind the music of a supposed '90s pop phenomenon. As the mockumentary goes, Thr33way aimed to "cut through all the innuendo" of contemporary boy band music.
The trio performed songs like "I Want a Three-Way" and "Quit Playing Games With My Penis." They were like the Backstreet Boys, minus the ambiguity about sex acts.
In one of the segment's more inspired moments, Kroll remembers when they "ripped off" Hansen with an "MMMBop" cover called "MMMBoobs." "They took us to court and they won -- quickly."
From there, the floodgates of legal trouble opened. And like Milli Vannili, Thr33way were hiding a dark secret… about their sexual experience. Watch ithere.
The early formation of the songs I write tend to come from either a general theme or idea, or sometimes just a line, which is where this one came from. I was having a conversation with some friends in a pub and one of them asked 'When did the darkness start?' in relation to what we were talking about, which I won't go into. But I clearly felt this was a particularly poignant question at the time, and eventually changed it and worked it into this song's refrain 'Where the light ends and the darkness begins'.
I think the question lends itself to a few different ideas - in this song I apply the first verse to space and the concept of light and darkness in the universe, and the second verse to an ending of a love affair. There was a third verse which didn't make it onto the recording which looked at death actually… perhaps I thought that was a bit too dark so to speak. The song ends instead with some NASA space transmission dialogue between an astronaut and a lady called Sally, which seemed to fit. So thanks, Sally. And the general recording and production idea centred around the fact that I wanted it to sound kind of space-y, which is where the synth and arpeggiated synth sounds slotted in nicely with the more earthly cellos and bass.
I think this was the first song I wrote that combined ideas about the cosmos and scientific imagery which came to be an underlying theme to the songs in the album that I'll be releasing later this year.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourselfright here!
