If Not Now, When? is an upcoming seventh studio album by American alternative rock band Incubus, which will be released on July 12, 2011 by Epic Records. It will be Incubus' first album since Light Grenades (2006), their longest gap to date between studio albums. "Adolescents" is the first single to accompany this album. The official video for "Adolescents" was released April 28, 2011.
Guitarist Mike Einziger said in an interview that the album would be very different from previous records. While Incubus' sound has evolved over time, Einziger stated that the group have moved even further away from their hard rock roots.
"Over the years, we've become less and less aggressive as far as our music goes. There's always moments of that aggression, but this album is pretty free of that. It's definitely not a hard rock record. I think we're asking a lot of our fans. We're asking them to listen for things that they normally wouldn't listen for. We're not leaning on the strengths of our last records either. It's that much different than our previous work. I think we took a risk by making this type of album. But it's not some crazy, experimental album. It's a very straightforward concise album. And it's a lot more focused than anything else we've ever done. So naturally I think this might disappoint some people, because there's a pretty obvious lack of heavy rock music on this album." - Mike Einziger
Vocalist Brandon Boyd explained the album as having "a very a particularly warm musical tone to it. It steps further out from anything we've ever done." Boyd also cites Einziger as a key reason for the band's new sound; "Michael really buckled down and studied musical composition that inspired him to reach out and dig into different places that he never has before." Boyd also said that the sound on the new record is the culmination of a long search for a new sound and direction for the band; "I do believe that for many years now we have been searching for something different. Something unique, both to the world and to us as a band. We decided that 'If Not Now, When?’ our sixth full length studio album would be just that."
Thematically, the album focuses on romance, according to Boyd; "it's about love and finding art and success in love. I never know what I'm going to be writing about until I'm actually writing about it. It's what's relevant in my heart and mind. There's definitely a romantic undertone and overtone."
