Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger posted some teases for the band's new album on Tuesday (January 24th) via Twitter, according to The PRP, promising fans that the disc is "not mellow" and that he "literally cannot wait to play all these songs for you." There is no word yet on the album's title or when it will arrive.
Einziger told Billboard last year that the Los Angeles band was looking to go in a "different direction" on its new CD, explaining, "We had a whole bunch of music put together and then we kind of pushed it to the side and said, 'Let's just go in a different direction and try new things' . . . Whatever the album ends up being, it will be great because we have so many songs to work with."
Einziger told us a while back that one of the things he's most proud of is the diversity of Incubus' music: "That's one of the things I personally enjoy about the band that I play in is that each song is actually pretty different from the next, and we're going to continue to carry that torch."
The band's eighth full-length studio effort will follow up 2015's Trust Fall (Side A) EP as well as its last album, 2011's If Not Now, When?

Einziger has stayed busy working on film scores with composer Hans Zimmer, while also contributing to dance hits like Avicii's "Wake Me Up" and David Guetta's "Lovers in the Sun."
