We know quite a bit more about what Incubus has planned for the coming year.
The group has announced an April 21 release date for its eighth album, titled an original 8, and has dropped the first single, "Nimble Bastard." Incubus also announced the full tour itinerary for the summer, kicking off July 6 in West Palm Beach, Fla., with opening acts Jimmy Eat World and Judah the Lion and wrapping up August 19 in Seattle.
It's Incubus' first new album since If Not Now, When? in 2011, though it released a Trust Fall (Side A) EP in 2015.
Frontman Brandon Boyd tells us Incubus finds itself in a positive and creative space these days:
"There's definitely this sort of renewed, adventurous spirit in the songwriting right now, which has been really fun...and it's really kind of making sense to me now how sort of excited we are, we all are again about being in this band and making music together and going on the road."
