Incubus Become Free Agents, Plan To Take Break
Incubus, who are currently free agents having completed their contract with Epic Records, are planning a hiatus following their summer tour with Linkin Park and Mutemath.
Band singer Brandon Boyd recently had a chat with Billboard.com and had the following to offer about the groups future plans:
“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.
Hopefully it won’t be as long (as the five-year wait for “If Not Now, When?‘) but what we’d like to do 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.”
Boyd also opened up on the potential options they are facing for the future release of new music. On that he stated:
“We’re trying to get our bearings to what we should do next, just as a band but also a band that is off in new territory again… I’m personally very excited about being in complete control, being a total control freak. That doesn’t mean we wouldn’t sign with another record label at some point, but it would have to be very, very specific, not get into just a good old fashioned record deal again, if they even exist.”
A live CD/DVD package from the group titled “Incubus HQ Live” will surface on August 14th.
