Older, Wiser, Tighter
Since their formation in 1991, the much-loved band has consciously and continually shifted their perspective with each subsequent album, preserving the spirit that initially drove them and simultaneously challenging themselves as artists and human beings.
Their eighth full-length, the aptly titled 8, proudly upholds that tradition for the quintet—Brandon Boyd (on vocals), Mike Einziger (on guitar, piano, backing vocals,) José Pasillas II (on drums), Chris Kilmore (on turntables, keyboards) and Ben Kenney (on bass).
The new album features the songs “Nimble Bastard,” “Glitterbomb,” “State of the Art” and “Undeafeated”.
“As a band, we’re collectively interested in challenging ourselves and hopefully finding new, innovative ways of writing music,” Brandon Boyd exclaimed. “That ethos has kept things interesting for us.”
“It evolved organically out of my friendship with Skrillex,” Einziger elaborated. “Incubus is all about friendship. We transferred the synergy of working together into what the band was doing. As we put the final touches on everything, Skrillex brought another level to the album.”
8 arrives at a significant milestone for Incubus—releasing exactly 20 years since their major label debut S.C.I.E.N.C.E. landed back in 1997. A little older, a lot wiser, quite tighter, but equally ready to challenge themselves and rock music at large, Incubus change their perspective once more in 2017.
“All the time, I hear from fans that our music was the backdrop of their first experience with love or important in getting them through a hard time,” Einziger beamed. “That’s the highest compliment.”
“When we finished 8, we were flooded with this wave of gratitude,” Boyd shared. “The fact that so many people are willing to come on this weird ride with us is really humbling. We’re filled with this sense of awe around it. We’re very happy to share this record with everyone, and we hope they like it.”
