Incubus Biography

Review The Artist (28)

Incubus has remained an ever-changing and developing band throughout their history, evolving their sound and lyrical content through each of their four full-length albums, various EPs, soundtrack work and home DVDs. It is this kinetic approach that has allowed them to survive throughout their 12-year career.

2003 has been an eventful year for the band and brought about several changes, including the replacement of founding member Dirk Lance with bass player Ben Kenney, former guitarist of the funk, hip-hop group The Roots. After taking a much-needed break following more than two years of promoting Morning View, Incubus has been writing new material for their much-anticipated follow-up album. They plan to debut new songs for audiences across the country this summer when they head out on the legendary Lollapalooza tour as one of the mainstage artists.

Incubus' major label debut landed in 1997 with Enjoy Incubus, an EP consisting of six revamped demos following their signing at Immortal/Epic Records. Later that year, with the release of S.C.I.E.N.C.E., Incubus hit the road in support of their first full-length album; something the band would continue to do virtually non-stop for the next six years. Their third album, Make Yourself, was released in October 1999 and became a catalyst for propelling Incubus into the mainstream music scene by spawning numerous hit singles. "Pardon Me", "Stellar" and "Drive" all settled in the top three spots on Billboard's Modern Rock chart in 2000 and 2001. In the summer of 2000, Incubus graduated to the main stage at the annual OzzFest tour, which exposed them to massive audiences. Following up with another coveted slot on Moby's eclectic Area: One Tour, their consistent touring coupled with the huge success of Make Yourself, made Incubus a household name. In October 2001 the group released their highly anticipated fourth album, Morning View.

Morning View brought Incubus their most significant success to date, going platinum in just 10 weeks while Make Yourself continued to climb, selling over two million copies. The momentum steadily gained around Morning View with the help of the lead single "Wish You Were Here," making it to the #2 spot on Billboard's Modern Rock chart.

Following the hectic pace of the last few years, the band decided to take some well-deserved time off at the end of 2002. During their break, Mike and Jose needed an outlet for their creativity and formed a funk-jazz infused side project, Time-Lapse Consortium, also featuring Incubus bassist Ben Kenney, Neal Evans (Soulive), Suzie Katayama and an 11-piece orchestra. The band has only played on two special occasions; one club appearance at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles in January and a live television stint this past April on Jimmy Kimmel Live, a late night television show.

With Lollapalooza beginning, Incubus is ready to do what they love most. return to the stage to play their new material and begin a new journey with their fans.
