Three tenth graders playing together in California realized the dreams of most tenth graders playing in a band, racking up #1 hits and selling millions of records. Such was the case with Brandon Boyd, Jose Pasillas, and Alex Katunich who formed the core of the band that would become Incubus as teens in Calabasas, California. Through a fortuitous connection, the band recorded and released Fungus Amongus in 1995 on their own independent label while they were still teenagers.
Major labels became interested and Incubus released S.C.I.E.N.C.E. on Epic. The album would eventually reach gold status, garnering praise for the mix of genres the band so effectively blended. The band toured with some bigger names like Korn as well as joining up with the Ozzfest tour. Incubus would return to Ozzfest a number of times throughout their carrers. After a short hiatus, they returned to the studio to produce Make Yourself.
Make Yourself would be the breakthrough the band needed. The album went double Platinum in the US and spawned a string of hits that culminated in the #1 "Drive." While the album climbed the charts, Incubus continued touring and making appearances, becoming a staple of MTV's TRL. "Drive" was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award in 2001.
Their follow-up album achieved similar success. 2001's Morning View went double Platinum, bringing two successful singles, "Wish You Were Here" and "Warning." In early 2002 the band had charted four songs simultaneously. Additional #1s would follow as the band continued to tour and record through the middle of the decade.
2006's Light Grenades brought another two #1 hits to the Incubus catalog, and, after two years of touring and performances, the band went on a temporary hiatus. Lead singer Brandon Boyd released a solo album while on hiatus but assured fans the band would be back. Incubus reunited in 2010 and started work on a new album as well as new tour dates.
Unless they're on a break, Incubus is rarely far from a stage. The band plays tirelessly all over the world, bringing their music to appreciative fans. Pick up tickets and check out these rock innovators today.

Incubus 1 1
In a world full of autotune...... It's refreshing to see a rock band with a singer who can actually sing live! Incubus is definitely one of those bands. I had always been a fan, bought their albums and watched their live performaces on the internet and DVD, but I would have been robbing myself had I never seen them live at least once! I saw them at a relatively small venue, and it was a very personal experience for the fact I was literally a few yards away from them for the whole show. They are a little different with Ben Kenney on bass, but he appropriately brings his own style of funk to an already stellar lineup for a complimentary overall sound. They played all the hits from previous albums, and their new record, as well. Brandon Boyd was awesome, better than the CD. The whole thing was a great experience. Cool stuff going on with the stage lights, too. If you haven't seen them, do it first chance you get. September 28, 2010
