I was skimming through my iTunes and seeing what bands I'd like to see that haven't already been mentioned.

It's been well over a year since "Light Grenades" was released and that was a fantastic album. I wouldn't mind seeing them play Coachella, they've played a couple times before am i correct?

Incubus died to me when they released Morningview.

If they came back and played a whole set of Fungus Amongus and SCIENCE, I would be very much in favor of that.

But that will never happen.

Because those albums are garbage. It's pop radio friendly crap. There is no funk to be found anywhere.

I'm all for Incubus. Most people are not. Oh well fuck them :D. They are quasi-rumored every year, I don't think they'll ever play. But it's perfectly possible. Of all years, though, I don't see this one being likely at all.

Oh yeah, and they're not bad live! Great lights. It's nothing special but it's a good time, they play their songs well and occasionally jam.

I like all of their albums, new one included. But I never got into A Crow Left of the Murder. I mainly listen to SCIENCE, Make Yourself & Morning View.

I'd be cool with it. I loved them when I was in high school. Incubus just doesn't seem to be big on playing festivals or award shows. I'd much rather have them over The Killers or Coldplay.

I enjoyed them the time I saw them. They did acoustic versions of SCIENCE songs, a Lionel Richie cover, and jammed for a bit.

you owe it to yourself to hear that shit. "a certain shade of green" is classic incubus. saw these guys 4 times back in the day. twice after morning view and twice after a crow left of the murder. solid shows from what i remember.

Incubus performing S.C.I.E.N.C.E. would be amazing for me. That album was the one that made me get into them.

Listen to all of S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and all the songs from Make Yourself that you didnt hear on the radio.

I think they are all doing solo things at the moment to take a break before they begin to start writing again.

Incubus gets little to no love, and it surprises me. SCIENCE, Make Yourself, and yes, even Morning View, are all excellent listens. They were good when I saw them years ago, and I'd enjoy seeing them again if I wasn't fearful of all the material they'd play from Crow and more recent.

make yourself is the album that got me into them, and i had obviously heard a lot from morning view just listening to the radio. i think the first song i ever heard was uhhh either warning or redefine.

i saw them at their peak when 'Pardon Me' was a hit single... they were opening for Deftones... and they sucked.

At least they're getting a little bit of love around here.

And yes, they played Virgin Fest Baltimore last year, and occasionally appear elsewhere. I know they're pretty common at the Euro festivals, but then again, everyone is when you think about it? So I don't think it's out of the question. And I know for a fact Brandon Boyd has been in attendance of Coachella before, and the I'm sure the other guys too (they're all from SoCal).

But of all years, definitely not this year. They're pretty much on hiatus. Maybe once they put out another album.

Is Incubus bigger than The Killers?

It's hard for me to tell. I know The Killers are playing arenas and Incubus hasn't toured in a while. Incubus had hits with Pardon Me and Drive....while The Killers have Mr. Brightside and When You Were Young. The Killers are huge on Top40 Pop radio....Incubus is average on rock radio with some airplay on Top40.
Incubus has sold slightly more records in the US...but they've been around twice as long and have more albums. The newest Killers album entered the charts at number 6, while the last Incubus record debuted at number 1.


P.S. Incubus has a Best Of album set for Spring 2009.

Seen them a couple of times. The noise level of the screaming teenage girls is quite unbelieveable. its so fucking loud. they could only be at coach if the ones that scream stay home. and also only if they play shit from there first two albums.
