Hugely influential alternative rock band Incubus have been making music since 1991 and are one of California's most critically acclaimed funk metal acts. The multi platinum quintet achieved mainstream success over ten years ago with the release of their third studio album, Make Yourself, which spawned the epic hit single Drive and other hits like Pardon Me and Stellar.
Since that album's release, Incubus have released four more records and toured the world with the likes of Deftones, Primus, System of a Down, Buckethead, Hoobastank, Mr. Bungle, The Music, Brand New, Sparta and Ben Kweller.
Incubus have just released their first album in five years, If Not Now, When? which was produced by longtime collaborator Brendan O'Brien (Bob Dylan, AC/DC, Pearl Jam). Described by guitarist Michael Einzinger as "a very straightforward, concise album", If Not Now, When? was recorded in the wake of the band's extended hiatus and has spawned two singles, Adolescents and Promises, Promises.
Now, the band will return to Australia for a national tour to promote the new album and perform some of their biggest hits, such as Wish You Were Here, Are You In? and Dig. Incubus will perform at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Friday, February 3; Canberra's Royal Theatre on Saturday, February 4; Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Monday, February 6; Festival Hall in Melbourne on Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 8; and Brisbane Convention Centre on Friday, February 10.
