Multi-platinum alt-rock icons Incubus celebrated the 20th anniversary of their major label debut album in 2017 with the release of their eighth studio album, itself entitled 8. And following it’s success, peaking at number 4 on the US album charts, the rockers will be bringing the likes of hit single Nimble Bastard and other instantly classic Incubus songs such as Glitterbomb and State Of The Art to Europe alongside a plethora of classics from their simply massive back catalogue.
The Californian five-piece, led by frontman Brandon Boyd, have consistently delivered records blending DJ mixing and heavy guitars with Boyd’s instantly recognisable vocals, and 8 delivers a satisfying continuation of that. From 1997’s S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and breakthrough late-1990’s records Make Yourself and Morning View through to 2011’s If Not Now, When? and now 8, the Calabasas-based band have continued to produce relevant new music while staying true to their signature fusion sound.
Kicking off Utrecht on 18th August, the Drive and Wish You Were Here hit-makers bring their energy-filled live show to venues across Germany, Spain, Denmark, Austria and France before kicking off a five-date UK and Ireland tour at Birmingham’s O2 Academy, hitting up London’s Brixton Academy and winding up at Dublin’s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
