INCUBUS, the nu-metalers with a soft side, are currently mid-tour, promoting their third album, Morning View. The California quintet will wind up near their home turf with a Dec. 2 Los Angeles show.

THE FAMILY VALUES TOUR has returned with headliners STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, STAIND, LINKIN PARK, and STATIC X. The 27-city cross-country extravaganza finishes up in Tacoma, Wash., on Nov. 17.
