Incubus will be on hiatus

Incubus has been on a hiatus before, as it took the band five whole years before their 2011 album released. They’ll be on another hiatus; however, the band members are planning to keep active throughout.

The lead singer of Incubus, Brandon Boyd, has given the news that Incubus will definitely be on a break, in his interview with Rolling Stone. The rock stars that singing “Pardon Me” released their last album in 2011 entitled “If Not Now, When?” Body says that their next album will be put together and released after what seems to be hiatus, and will definitely look like one to fans.

Boyd, the 37 year old artist, mentioned that he has recently finished a new solo album with veteran producer, who he’s also worked with through Incubus, Brendan O’Brien. The new solo album from Boyd will be most likely released during the summer time.

Boyd has said that his new album is much different from the sound of Incubus, since there are two minds collaborating instead of five. There will be a lot more piano in the tracks, and also rhythm, as well as a unique sounding type of pop. He is planning to do some solo performances once the album drops, and says that he’s willing to open for anyone to promote his new album.

While Incubus will indeed be on a long break, fans won’t be without individual projects from the members of Incubus. Each of them will be looking to keep busy, so look out for their projects from scoring films to solo albums.

Manager of Incubus and others comment on iCloud-type cloud locker

It has been admitted that Ashcroft thinks that Apple has handled the digital transformation better than the entire music industry; however, they fear that iCloud-type cloud locker services hold a dreary future for music.

It is believed that if streaming services like Spotify become mainstream, the future will be bright. However, if cloud locker services that are filled with lots of pirated content thrive, and the music industry will be left fighting for scraps, things won’t be going so well. Apple is making around $40 billion per year, and the music industry is fighting to take a piece of that share that people pay for iCloud.

CEO of Sacem Jean-Noel Tronc criticized the lobbying budgets of the few worldwide tech giants that claimed they had a love for music and innovation, even if they are making actions to put it down. He voiced his opinion on how the music industry is simply not getting a fair share from the digital playlist.

Steve Rennie, the manager of Incubus also voiced his opinion on the matter, reiterating his bold stance of “fuck the gatekeepers.”

“Record labels spent too much time protecting their business models than innovating,” Rennie said.

Rennie believed that was the unraveling of the label business, and also mentioned that they stopped thinking about the consumer.

Rennie is very planted on his opinion on what’s happening to the label business, as he believes that innovation is dying as the days go by because it’s not being projected as a main concern.

What’s your favorite Incubus hit?

Incubus has been around for over a decade, and they’ve racked up plenty of hit songs and fan favorites over the years. They made their breakout debut in 1999 with their album entitled Make Yourself and have developed a fantastic fan-based because of their very unique contribution to the world of music. To celebrate the band’s amazing career, we’d like you to ponder over what song is your favorite Incubus song.

Let’s start at the best place to start anything: the beginning. Incubus came into the music world in 1996, but they didn’t quite become famous that year. Their very first single was “Take Me to Your Leader” from the album Fungus Amongus. That same year, they also released a single for the Spawn soundtrack entitled “Familiar.” They also have a song called “New Skin” that gained popularity, coming from the S.C.I.E.N.C.E album that’s a standout from their early years in the music business.

We also can’t forget the Make Yourself that spawned amazing singles like “Pardon Me,” “Stellar,” and “Drive.” There’s also 2001’s Morning View disc that carried many memorable songs like “Wish You Were Here,”  and “Warning” that should get some consideration as well.

There’s also A Crow Left of the Murder that gave us hits like “Megalomaniac” and “Talk Shows on Mute.” Then there comes the 2006 album called Light Grenades with highlights that include “Anna Molly,” “Dig,” “Oil and Water”, and so on. It’s pretty clear that there are a lot of quality songs to choose from. The question is, what Incubus song is your favorite?

Brandon Boyd of Incubus to release new solo album and book

Lead singer of the famous rock band Incubus, Brandon Boyd, has been talking about a new solo album, and now he’s pretty close to finishing it. During an interview with Billboard, Boyd mentioned that he’d be working on his second solo album, along with other various projects, while Incubus is taking another break.

Boyd is quite excited about his new solo effort, saying that it’s far from the sound of Incubus, but something that fans of Incubus may like. He compares the sound of his second solo album to sailors that are riding unicorns, and other mystically weird things of that sort. Boyd says that he’s absolutely ready to get his album on shelves; however, there are still some regular motions the album has to go through before it can be released. It’s looking like the album will be released sometime this summer.

In addition to the new music, Boyd is also hard at work on a book that will go along with his solo album. He describes it as an art book that will go along with the way that the music sounds. Perhaps there will be unicorns in it.

The rest of Incubus is also keeping busy during the downtime. Chris Kilmore is getting into the DJ scene, making a name for himself while do so. Mike Einziger has just finished scoring an independent film, which will be released very soon. Incubus will be on hiatus probably for a while, but that doesn’t mean the individuals themselves will be.
