20 years ago Incubus released S.C.I.E.N.C.E. The rest is history.
The alternative rock band is celebrating the two decade milestone and brand new album, 8, with a North American tour that fortunately stops in Charlotte this week. Incubus boast a rich history – commencing in Calabasas, Calif. in 1995, the Brandon Boyd front band has gone on to accomplish many significant feats in their ongoing tenure. With eight studio albums to date (hence their most recent release’s title), Incubus has achieved RIAA gold, platinum and multi-platinum success in addition to landing four No. 1 songs on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart,most notably “Drive.”
The road trip marks the first headlining tour Incubus has done in two years and the first time they’ve visited Charlotte in quite a few years.
However despite celebrating the band’s unforgettable 20 years, there’s more to Incubus than their storied discography. The band’s latest single “Nimble Bastard” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock charts and 8 received acclaimed recognition for Boyd’s vocal range – citing that he’s still got it.
“We’ll definitely be playing some new music, but it’s really fun for us still to play our older music,” Boyd told WJBD Radio.
Joined by Jimmy Eat World and Judah & the Lion, Incubus’s tour guarantees to be a good one and certainly one of the most celebrated shows to roll through Charlotte this summer. Both supporting bands are enjoying a surge of popularity. While Jimmy Eat World’s 2016 release Integrity Blues marked a few milestones for the band, becoming the highest charting release in the UK, Judah & the Lion are just beginning their climb into mainstream success with Folk Hop ‘N’ Roll.
