Incubus Manager Says Band is not Breaking-up

Steve Rennie, Incubus’ manager, clarified that band was going on a break and not breaking-up. He denies all rumors of the band going on separate ways after Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd told Billboard that he might be releasing a solo album and that the band had “no plans” for now.

 

“We have no plans, to tell you the truth, at the moment, I have been tinkering around, potentially, with a second solo record. That’s probably the most likely scenario. But as far as Incubus right now, we’ll probably take another break.”

 

Rennie, in an interview with CBS news, emphasized that this quote has been misinterpreted and blown out of proportion. He further clarifies that the band is nowhere near breaking up especially now that Incubus have just signed under a new label.

 

Incubus went on a 5-year hiatus before between 2006′s Light Grenades and their 2011 album If Not Now, When, and it is not surprising that they are going to have another break. When Rennie was asked if “hiatus” is the right term to use for the band’s break, Rennie said “Let’s not get locked into the word ‘hiatus’. They just need to get rejuvenated and inspired to make their next album. Bands like Incubus don’t crank out music on a schedule. Taking time to work on other things only adds to what they can bring to the table when they regroup.”

 

Rennie reassures fans that this will only be a break after making the album and the 18-month long touring to support it. “Any band would need a break after that,” he said.
