Incubus is an American rock band that formed in Calabasas, California in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd1, guitarist Mike Einziger, and drummer Jose Pasillas while they were still in high school. After graduating from high school, Incubus established their own record label, Stopuglynailfungus Music and released their first EP, Let Me Tell Ya ‘Bout Root Beer, in 1995. Later that year, they would release their debut full-length studio album, Fungus Amongus. Incubus was signed to Immortal Records, soon to be Epic Records, shortly after releasing their debut album. In September of 1997, Incubus released their second full-length studio album, S.C.I.E.N.C.E. The help of a major-label made S.C.I.E.N.C.E. significantly more successful than the debut album. The band’s third full-length studio album, Make Yourself, was released in October of 1999. Make Yourself was a massive commercial success thanks to the popular singles, “Drive”, “Stellar”, and “Pardon”, which respectively peaked at 1, 2, and 3 on the Modern Rock Tracks chat. Make Yourself is still the highest selling Incubus album to date with over 3 million copies sold.
After the success of Make Yourself, Incubus recorded and released their fourth full-length studio album, Morning View, in 2001. Although Morning View wasn’t quite as commercially or critically successful as Make Yourself, it was considered a strong follow-up that established Incubus as one of the top alternative rock bands in the world. Morning View had five singles with four of them peaking in the top ten on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The next few albums from Incubus cemented their alternative rock royalty with their 2004 album, A Crow Left of the Murder…, peaking at #2 in the Billboard Top 200 and their 2006 album, Light Grenades, peaking at # 1 on the Billboard Top 200. Light Grenades contained the hit singles Anna Molly and Dig that both received significant play on the radio. Incubus then took five years off from recording before releasing their most recent full-length studio album, If Not Now, When?, in 2011. In May of 2015, Incubus released an EP, Trust Fall (Side A), and will be touring the new songs throughout
