I recently spoke with Jose Pasillas, the drummer of Incubus. The band had originally planned on releasing another EP later this year, but now they're considering doing a full-length instead. See the interview here.
This is an experiment for us. We’re writing, recording, rehearsing, and touring all back to back. We’re exploring our options and we don’t have anything set in stone, so that may be an option for us to put out a whole record.
In a new interview, Mike Einziger revealed that he and Brandon Boyd have been secretly working on new Incubus material. Although that doesn't mean anyone should get their hopes up any time soon.

Jesus Christ Superstar, the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical, will be making another touring round. It will feature John Lydon (Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols) in the role of King Herod. Additionally, Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams will star as Mary Magdalene, Incubus singer Brandon Boyd will play Judas Iscariot, and 'NSync's JC Chasez will play Pontius Pilate. Ben Forster will play Jesus.
After 16 amazing years, my tenure as manager of Incubus has ended. It has been my honor and privilege to have served as manager and mentor to Brandon, Mike, Jose, Chris, Ben, and Alex.

There’s definitely some intentionally autobiographical material in almost everything I’ve ever written. I guess you could say my life or my experience thus far is the most cooperative muse. I make very consistent mistakes in my life. I learn hard lessons, and I learn about those things through an abstractive externalization of them. I think that’s what a lot of artists do.
