Incubus is an alternative rock band that was formed in Southern California in the late nineties by childhood friends while in high school. Lead singer Brandon Boyd, guitarist Mike Einziger, and drummer Jose Pasillas II. To date they have sold over 13 million albums worldwide.
Incubus tickets were made available and the band began playing local shows at all types of venues in Southern California. They are known for their eclectic sound, balancing experimental and progressive qualities with pop appeal, earning praise for their ability to change and evolve their music with every subsequent release. Their lyrics touch on a number of different subjects, from their earliest works which touch on drugs and anti-conformity to the later albums where they primarily stress an optimistic view.
Incubus has received both high critical acclaim and commercial success, reaching multi-platinum sales, as well as releasing several highly successful singles. The band started branching out creatively and earned mainstream recognition with the release of their 1999 album Make Yourself. Two years later they had released Morning View and Incubus tickets were some of the industries hottest and the album quickly became hugely successful. After touring exclusively for the next two years, Incubus proved to be a hot commodity. While touring, the band would stay busy on the road by writing songs. This produced their next album A Crow Left of the Murder. By this time the band had also begun to branch out into other outlets such as video games Halo 2, Guitar Hero, and films such as Stealth and Final Destination 2.
More recently the band decided that they would go on hiatus and lead singer Brandon Boyd told Billboard.com that they take a break from touring and recording while its members concentrate on school, family and other activities. Boyd plans to enroll in a university art program, while guitarist Mike Einziger will go to Harvard music school next year to study composition. Einziger just showcased an orchestral piece in concert at UCLA's Royce Hall. Drummer Jos? Pasillas is also "having a baby, so there's a lot of normal life stuff going on right now?school, babies, mortgages," Boyd said. "I'm of the mind to say it wouldn't be a bad thing to disappear for a year or two" he said.
Currently Einziger stated that the band is likely to release a greatest hits album and possibly get together in late 2009 to record an album of all new material for release in 2010 and no doubt hit the road again for a world tour. The band also launched a killer website where fans can sign up for current events and be alerted when Incubus tickets are made available before they go on sale to the public.
