A Wave of Great New Music Is On The Way

Incubus just released a new single, “Adolescents.” I just gave it a first listen tonight, and I liked what I heard. It certainly has a great smooth sound with awesome guitar work. After just one listen the song seems to be about feeling overwhelmed, but I don’t want it to be that simple. Lyrics are at the bottom of the post for you to overanalyze. Incubus will release the full album, entitled If Not Now, When? on July 12.

Incubus isn’t the only band doing work, there is a wave of great music on the way.

  • The Red Hot Chili Peppers will release a new album this summer. They’ve already recording the songs, so the bulk of the work is done, and I’m expecting it in June although I’ve heard May. I would guess it will be their final full length album and I expect nothing short of Stadium Arcadium which I consider one of the greatest albums in the last 30 years.

  • I caught word (via 96.1fm in Atlanta) that about a month ago Shinedown was in LA working on a new album. I have to think that a release date will come this summer.
  • On my ride home today 96.1 played the new Beastie Boys single. I listened to it on the radio and just gave it another listen for good measure. I shouldn’t have wasted my time, but you can waste yours. Here it is… Beastie Boys – “Make Some Noise”
  • Tommy’s last band of the week Veer Union is currently working on a new album entitled Divide the Blackened Sky. For more on Veer Union see Tommy’s post,

I’m sure I’m forgetting a lot…but the lyrics to Incubus’s new single are below so read, share your thoughts, and tell me about any upcoming albums I forgot.

I’m feeling out of bounds, out of bounds
I’m running out of time, out of time
I know there’s no such thing as either of them
But its doesn’t make me feel any better

Out of sight, out of mind
Out of sight, out of mind
We’re out of time
We’re out of mind
Out of mind
Out of mind
Yeah, yeah

I’m feeling overwhelmed, overwhelmed
It’s getting out of line, line, line
I know I’m not alone
Just adolescents, you and I
It doesn’t make me feel any better

Out of sight, out of mind
Out of sight, out of mind
We’re out of time
We’re out of mind
Out of mind
Out of mind
Yeah, yeah
Out of sight, out of mind
Out of sight, out of mind
We’re out of time
We’re out of mind
Out of mind
Out of mind
We’re out of mind
Yeah

  1. We’ll see what RHCP has left in the tank. I’m sure it’s more than enough to satisfy their fans.

    Nothing confirmed on Shinedown yet, although rumor has it the album won’t be out until 2012. Definitely one to look forward to.

    The Beastie Boys suck.

    Black Stone Cherry’s new album, “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”, is due out May 31. They already have a new single out called “White Trash Millionaire”.

    Lacuna Coil, one of Ryan’s favorite bands, is supposed to have a new release this year, and all indications are that it will be darker and heavier than their last CD, “Shallow Life.” Sounds good to me!

  2. Not sure how I forgot to mention this, but was reminded… “The first single from Wasting Light, titled ‘Rope,’ was released to radio on February 23rd. The album is set to be released April 12, 2011.”
