Incubus is a rock band from California that utilizes rap and metal, as well as more ambient sounds, to create their unique sound. The band formed in 1991 when singer Brandon Boyd, guitarist Mike Einziger, drummer Jose Pasillas and bassist Alex Katunich met in high school. A DJ named Gavin Koppell rounded out the lineup. They started writing and performing music together, and by 1995, they released their first album, “Fungus Amongus,” on their own record label. Incubus immediately began attracting the attention of fans. After signing with Immortal Records, the band released an EP called “Enjoy Incubus” in 1997. It was their first major release, and was well-received by fans. Later in 1997, Incubus released their second full-length album, “S.C.I.E.N.C.E.” Again, the album became popular, and was praised by critics for its diverse sound. Shortly after the release of the album, in 1998, Koppell was released from the band, and a new DJ, Chris Kilmore, took his place. In 1999, Incubus released their next album, “Make Yourself.” The album featured several songs, such as “Stellar,” “Drive” and “Pardon Me,” which would become huge hits. The album would eventually reach #47 on the Billboard 200. In 2001, Incubus released their fourth album, called “Morning View.” It reached #2 on the Billboard 200 Chart, and would eventually be the band’s highest selling album. In 2002, Katunich left the band, and Ben Kenney replaced him. The band began writing new music, and released “A Crow Left of the Murder…” in 2004. A sixth album, “Light Grenades,” followed in 2006. Both albums were successful with fans and critics alike. After a hiatus, a new album called “If Not Now, When?” was released in 2011. In 2014, the band announced that an eighth album would most likely be released in 2015.
