about the band
Incubus is a famous name and formidable force in the competitive world of modern music. Having sold over 13 million albums worldwide, Incubus' extraordinary career has spanned over two decades, and includes seven studio albums, which have spawned a total of fourteen Top 10 Rock hits with four singles debuting at #1 upon their release.
When Incubus released their first full-length album ‘S.CI.E.N.C.E’, they were but wee lads overflowing with enthusiasm and energy and earned a loyal following with their unique sound and relentless touring, opening for renowned nu-metal bands such as Korn and System Of A Down. Their second effort, ‘Make Yourself, received critical acclaim and achieved double-platinum status after selling over 2 million copies. 2011’s ‘Morning View’, featuring radio hits like ‘Pardon Me’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’, catapulted the band into international stardom. Their signature blend of hip-hop, rock and metal won over the hearts of fans across the globe, and they quickly found themselves headlining bigger tours and playing at famous festivals by the likes of Ozzfest. Incubus teamed up with Pearl Jam producer Brendan O Brien for their sixth studio album ‘A Crow Left Of The Murder’, which reached gold status on the strength of the #1 hit "Megalomanic. 2006 saw Incubus realize the ultimate dream of peaking #1 on the US charts with ‘Light Grenades’. Five years after the release of ‘Light Grenades’, Incubus felt a collective itch to create again. ‘If Not Now, When’ is an unabashed, romantic, lush, sonic love letter to the world, with tracks like 'Promises, Promises' and 'Friends & Lovers' revealing new levels of elegance, space, and psychedelia in the band's ever-evolving sound.
This creative quintet proves that good things come to those who wait, and with a new album in the works, fans can expect another artistic creation inspired by beauty, destruction and many of life’s weird and wonderful experiences. Lead singer Brandon Boyd sums off the band’s journey to success in poetic fashion: “So, if success is a drug, then Incubus is a functioning addict. I know how trite it sounds to be commenting on our own success but I see our addiction as a collective one. You have enabled us thus far and what we are creating in the process will be worthy of conversation for a long time to come. When I say 'WE' I mean you and I. All of us. This is, after all, a conversation that started in the early 90's and has continued until today. A stroll along a winding path through many landscapes and over much terrain. Yes, our bones ache, our dogs are barkin', our shoes have holes in them, and we don't look as good with our shirts off anymore. But that doesn't mean we won't keep walking! And conversing along the way.”
