Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd has shared some thoughts on the new Incubus album If Not Now, When? via the Incubus website. He details several songs and how the band found their footing for the album in writing the bands title track.
Here is what he said about the band’s first single Adolescents
“Our first single, Adolescents is perhaps the most familiar sounding Incubus song on this new album. It begins with Michael’s unmistakable and inimitable guitar work and rolls its way into a kind of drunken waltz. Creeping its way into the idea that we are collectively just about to reach our cultural teenage years. It does seem like we’ve been around forever. Us, I mean. People. Culture. But all it takes is a sojourn into Earth’s biological record to realize that WE are quite new! And the transitions at play in our complex little game are akin to the struggles that an adolescent might endure.”
If Not Now, When? will be released on July 12th. You can read the rest of his entry on the incubus website.
