INCUBUS HITS THE ROAD IN SUPPORT OF NEW ALBUM
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
BROADCASTING FIRST SHOW LIVE FROM DENVER’S RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATER
“HQLive On the Road” Gives Fans Ultimate Backstage Access
New York, NY – On the heels of their #2 debuting new album “If Not Now, When?,” Incubus is gearing up for the US leg of their tour hitting over 30 cities across the US. The tour kicks off with a sold-out show at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver on August 17, 2011. Back in 2004, the band recorded a highly successful concert DVD “Live at Red Rocks” and to commemorate the event and the launch of the US tour the band will be giving fans across the world access to their first show of the tour live at www.livestream.com/incubus.
Leading up to the launch of the new album, Incubus has been using a number of cutting edge web technology products to connect with their vast fan base as part of their groundbreaking weeklong web event called “HQ Live” June 30th to July 6th. The success of the band’s social media site www.incubushq.com spawned the week of live concerts and band interaction with their fans broadcast live on the web that helped launch the new album to a #2 debut on the Billboard Charts. Incubus is now taking the “HQLive” concept on the road using an exciting mobile streaming backpack called LiveU. The LiveU device transmits broadcast-quality live video from anywhere by bonding multiple cellular connections, allowing roaming videographers equipped with only a portable backpack and camera to cover on and off the stage activities, while getting real-time feedback from fans via social media.
In addition, the band will be setting up an IncubusHQ “meeting point” at every tour stop where IncubusHQ members can gather and meet other fans from around the country. “HQLive On the Road” will be broadcasting each show night, from the IncubusHQ “meeting point” as well as backstage, around the venue, and on the road. At the “meeting point,” Incubus fans will have opportunities to participate in the live broadcast, and to win seat upgrades and Incubus memorabilia.
Incubus fans in the US and around the world will be able to stay up to speed on all the tour activities with the IncubusHQ Mobile Roadie app which is available for Iphones, Ipads, and Android devices. Fans that download the app will have access to all kinds of features including news, chat, photos, tour merchandise, Livestream content, and the ability to access exclusive video and audio content.
Tickets for the tour are now on sale.

Having sold over 13 million albums worldwide, Incubus’ extraordinary career has spanned over a decade, and includes six studio albums, which have spawned a total of thirteen Top 10 Rock hits with four singles debuting at #1 upon their release. The multi-platinum quintet’s last studio album Light Grenades debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 (highest charting album debut of band’s career) and has sold over 800k copies to-date in the US.
Hailing from Calabasas, California, Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger and Jose Pasillas formed Incubus in 1991 while they were in high school with Chris Kilmore joining in 1998 and Ben Kenney joining in 2003. The band’s break came in 1999 with the singles, “Pardon Me,” “Stellar” and “Drive,” from their second full-length, double-platinum selling disc Make Yourself. The group’s third album, Morning View, released in 2001, debuted at #2 on the album chart and included the radio hits “Wish You Were Here,” “Nice to Know You” and “Warning.” In 2004 Incubus released A Crow Left of the Murder which achieved platinum status on the strength of the #1 hit “Megalomanic.”
