Here's the exclusive premiere of "Megalomaniac," a track off Incubus' new live album (and DVD), Incubus HQ Live, which will be released August 14.

The release date coincides with the start of the 2012 Honda Civic Tour featuring Linkin Park and Incubus. The four-week, 18-city tour of the U.S. and Canada kicks off at Comcast Center in Boston and ends at Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre in San Diego on September 10. Check out all the dates below the SoundCloud player.

In summer of 2011, celebrating their 20th year together, Incubus turned a Los Angeles storefront space into a low-key, high-tech residency that resulted in six nights of free performances and fan encounters now chronicled on the new album and DVD. The experience unfolds across three separate multi-disc packages released by Legacy Recordings:

Incubus HQ Live (16-track CD + DVD, available August 14);
Incubus HQ Live Special Edition (28-track double-CD + DVD, available August 14);
Incubus HQ Live Special Edition Box Set (available only at this location for a limited time).

More info about the album's many configurations can be found below.

Follow the band on Facebook and their official website.
