Incubus Says Skrillex Co-Produced Majority Of Upcoming Album

skrillex incubus

It was confirmed in early February that Skrillex had his "hand in a song" when Incubus' guitarist Mike Einziger was speaking with KROQ-FM's music director about their upcoming album. Well it looks likes Skrillex's contribution to the LP has increased tenfold as a brand new interview has surfaced on Beats 1 where Incubus tells the host that Skrillex ended up co-producing "a bunch of the songs" on the album and mixed all of the songs. 

"It's an interesting co-production situation where we were very close to being finished with our album and we have a song called "Familiar Faces" that he ended up making some significant changes to and it was really exciting to us. And we kind of, in a very organic way, thought, "Hey, maybe we should address a couple other songs that we thought maybe could use some changing in some way...

We ended up just going through the entire album and so he ended up co-producing most of the songs, or at least a bunch of the songs and mixing all of the songs...We were just going to spend a day or two in the studio together, kind of messing around, and it turned into two weeks of just working everyday."

Let that sink in for a second. We can't wait to hear what this album sounds like and if you're thinking it's going to be a full-on dubstep project, Incubus is quick to clarify that that is not the case.

"I think a lot of people's first reaction to that might be that we made some kind of Incubus dubstep album and it's not like that at all. Skrillex is a really tasteful, very artful producer. He's got great taste."

Incubus' album comes out on Apr. 21. Stream the full interview with Incubus below. Enjoy!

Skrillex Shares First Preview Of Incubus Collaboration : Listen

Skrillex Incubus

It was just revealed that Skrillex is working on a collaboration with Incubus and Deftornes’ lead singer Chino Moreno, and now Skrillex has shared a snippet of the track. Skrillex was kind enough to share a preview of their works together uploading a 15 second clip alongside Incubus.

While previous images teasing the collaboration showed Moreno, this video snippet doesn't mention him although this may be the song they're all working on together. Sonny also recently re-joined his band From First To Last as their singer and while we’re unsure his contributions on the Incubus collab, it wouldn’t be a surprise if this is him singing on the snippet. There’s little info on the collaboration, but with Incubus dropping their first album in nearly six years this April we’ll likely hear the full version soon. Check the preview below and enjoy!
