Much-loved American alt-rockers Incubus are going on a hiatus – with frontman Brandon Boyd telling Billboard that the band “have no plans” for the immediate future.
“We have no plans, to tell you the truth, at the moment,” he said. “As far as Incubus right now, we’ll probably take another break.”
The band are currently on tour in North America with Linkin Park and Mutemath. They visited Australia in February earlier this year in support of their latest album If Not Now, When?
Boyd stressed that the band were not splitting up indefinitely and that the upcoming break “hopefully…won’t be as long” as their five-year gap before If Not Now, When?
“What we’d like to do,” says Boyd, “is arrive with the best of intentions and try to create music from a sense of urgency as well as purity and not necessarily based on a schedule. I know that can be frustrating for our listeners and stuff, but I think we’ll make better music as a result.”
Before the break, the band will be releasing a new live CD/DVD – Incubus HQ Live on August 14. The package is based on a series of exclusive shows that the band performed in a Los Angeles storefront, where they played to fans both live and online through social media.
