Incubus Tour 2019! Incubus is an American rock band from Calabasas, California and currently consists of Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger, Jose Pasillas, Chris Kilmore and Ben Kenney.
Incubus was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, guitarist Mike Einziger, bassist Alex Katunich and drummer Jose Pasillas, while the members were in high school. Incubus influences include Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Red Hot Chili Peppers and their sound crosses the genres of alternative rock, heavy metal, funk and electro. For a while the band were nameless, until being asked to provide one for an upcoming show and Incubus was born from there on. They cut their teeth at some of the most infamous venues on the Los Angeles Sunset strip including The Roxy and The Troubadour.
The band had to juggle early recordings around their school work, but in 1995 they completed their first two song EP with producer Gavin Koppell. They released their first album ‘Fungus Amongus’ on their own label before later signing to Immortal Records which became Epic Records. In 1997, the band supported Korn on their European tour and promoted their first major label release, the six track ‘Enjoy Incibus’ EP.
The band spent a whole year touring their second album ‘S.C.I.E.N.C.E’ and thanks to radio and TV exposure, it went on to sell over 100,000 copies. This laid the foundations for the critically acclaimed release of ‘Make Yourself’ which has now been certified double platinum in the States and featured their first hit single ‘Drive’ which cracked the top 10 of the Billboard Charts. After this release, the band continued to go from strength to strength with their releases, they toured the world over and over promoting the likes of ‘Morning View’ and ‘A Crow Left of The Murder…’ which saw their chart success increase in countries such as the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Their 2006 release ‘Light Grenades’ topped the US Billboard charts and played huge sets at festivals worldwide including Download, Rock Am Ring and Pinkpop.
In 2008 the band took a short hiatus to concentrate on family, education and general life. On March 11, 2009, Incubus posted an update to their official site detailing the new Greatest Hits album ‘Monuments and Melodies’ which charted at #5 on the US Billboard Charts when it was released on June 16 2009. They posted a photograph of themselves working in the studio in 2014 which would allude to a new album being released imminently whilst they have confirmed they will be attending Australia’s SoundWave music festival in 2015.
