Incubus South Africa Tour 2018

Multi-platinum alt-rock icons Incubus, are coming to tour South Africa for the first time in February 2018. The Californian rockers released their eighth album this year, aptly named 8, and are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first major label album S.C.I.E.N.C.E with a world tour.

The South African leg of the tour will kick off in Pretoria on 24 February at the Voortrekker Monument before hitting Cape Town on 28 February at Green Point A Track and will include support by South Africa’s biggest rock legacy acts. Pretoria fans can look forward to a full day of head-banging, rocking tunes from 12pm to midnight.

Fans will be taken on a musical journey of their vast career, spanning over 20 years of hits and crowd favourites. Tickets are available at www.incubussatour.co.za from R395.

Since their formation in 1991, the band continues to evolve with every album launched, growing their cult following and impressive award collection over the decades.  With worldwide album sales exceeding 23 million, numerous #1 hits on the Billboard chart, including “Drive”, “Megalomaniac”, “Anna-Molly”, and “Love Hurts” they have graced the stages of festivals around the globe and toured with the likes of Linkin Park, OutKast, Queens of the Stone Age and many more.

Incubus has never shied away from experimenting with other genres of music, infusing them into their staple rock. “As a band, we’re collectively interested in challenging ourselves and hopefully finding new, innovative ways of writing music,” says lead vocalist Brandon Boyd. “That ethos has kept things interesting for us.”

At the same time, fans can look forward to a sense of nostalgia when listening to select songs from their latest album, as Incubus has returned to their heavier rock roots. Listen out for tunes like “Nimble Bastard”, “No Fun” and “Glitterbomb”.

8 is also a special album for the award-winning band as it was co-produced by close friend and musical genius Sonny John Moore, more commonly known as Skrillex. Lead guitarist Mike Einziger says Skrillex’s contribution to the album was both stellar and natural. “It evolved organically out of my friendship with Skrillex,” says Einziger. “Incubus is all about friendship. We transferred the synergy of working together into what the band was doing. As we put the final touches on everything, Skrillex brought another level to the album.”
 
“When we finished 8, we were flooded with this wave of gratitude,” Boyd says. “The fact that so many people are willing to come on this weird ride with us is really humbling. We’re filled with this sense of awe around it. We’re very happy to share this record with everyone, and we hope they like it.”
