Incubus add extra date to UK tour

The band will return in September 2018.

Due to overwhelming demand, Incubus have added a second London date to their forthcoming UK tour, seeing them take to London’s O2 Academy Brixton on Friday 7 September 2018.

The band, comprising Brandon Boyd, Mike Einzinger, Jose Pasillas II, Chris Kilmore and Ben Kenney, released their eighth album this time last year. The release of 8 marked exactly twenty years since their major label debut, dropping the iconic S.C.I.E.N.C.E. in 1997.

Having appeared at festivals across the globe, and with sales exceeding 23 million worldwide, Incubus have previously toured alongside the likes of Deftones, Linkin Park, Moby, Queens Of The Stone Age and many more.

They released their debut album proper, Fungus Amongus, in 1995, going on to release S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and Make Yourself before the end of the century. They celebrated their highest chart success with follow-up albums A Crow Left Of Murder… and the US No.1 record Light Grenades.

Their music has celebrated widespread acclaim, including hit songs such as Megalomanic, Wish You Were Here and Drive.

 

This time last year, we caught up with vocalist Brandon Boyd and drummer José Pasillas II to celebrate the release of their aptly titled eighth album, 8. They told us it felt like the right time for the band to reunite, recording their lyrically heaviest album to date. They have also invoked the help of Skrillex on mixing duties, and the unfaltering Dave Sardy as producer.
