Incubus, 311, and Badflower to embark on massive summer 2020 tour

Get your summer clothes and blunts ready because Incubus is hitting the road this summer for a massive United States-centric tour.

On Tuesday (Feb. 4), the California-founded band announced plans to hit the touring circuit during the summer months. Heading out with them during the trek will be 311 (who will be celebrating their 30th anniversary by playing all 50 states throughout 2020) and Badflower.

The 36-stop outing will find the bands performing at venues across the country throughout July, August, and September. The three acts will take the stage at a slew of major cities, including Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Nashville, and more.

The upcoming tour kicks off on July 15 at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington and concludes almost two months on Sept. 5 at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana.

Pre-sale tickets for the summertime outing go on sale this Wednesday, Feb. 5, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin this Friday, Feb. 7, at 10 a.m. local time.

The forthcoming tour will be in support of Incubus’ recently announced EP, Trust Falls (Side B). The much-anticipated record is due out in April.

It’s been five years since Incubus released Trust Fall (Side A).

Before confirming the new EP, fans have been waiting patiently for new music. Last August, they released “Into the Summer,” and just last week, they unveiled another new track titled “Our Love.”

Both songs will reportedly be featured on the upcoming record.

Incubus’ last studio album was 2017’s 8.

Incubus channel ‘The Lost Boys’ for ‘Into the Summer’

Just as summer is about to wrap up, Incubus has returned with a brand new tune.

On Friday (Aug. 23), the California-founded band unleashed their first new song in two years. Titled “Into the Summer,” the tune does not sound like the Incubus we know and love at first, but the second the vocals begin, it is unmistakably Brandon Boyd’s voice flowing through the speakers.

To coincide with the song’s release, the band unveiled the cinematic music video for the track. The premise of the video is simple: new kid moves to a new town. Catches the eye of the leader of the “wrong group.” Becomes part of the group who turn out to be vampires. Becomes a vampire. Realizes they’re no good and kills them all (save for the girl).

If you’re saying to yourself that it sounds a  lot like the premise of “The Lost Boys,” then you’re not wrong. It looks like the band was inspired by the 1987 smash hit. Watch the Frank Borin-directed clip above.

No word on whether this is a standalone single or part of a full record. Incubus’ last studio record was 2017’s 8.

Incubus recently made headlines when they announced a massive partnership with ADA Worldwide.

The partnership, in conjunction with the band’s record label, will include support in sales, distribution, radio promotion, marketing, publicity, digital strategy, and sync licensing in the United States.

“Incubus is beyond excited to be part of the ADA family, and we look forward to releasing new music with our new partners!” lead guitarist Mike Einziger said about the collaboration.

Earlier this year, Incubus announced plans to embark on a massive “20 Years of Make Yourself and Beyond” tour. The lengthy outing will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the act’s third studio album, Make Yourself.

The 39-stop outing includes gigs in major cities such as San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Austin, Atlanta, and more.

The excursion kicks off on Sept. 13 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver and concludes almost three months later on Dec. 7 at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach. Dub Trio, Wild Belle, and Le Butcherettes will open for Incubus throughout the long jaunt.

The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Incubus announce massive ’20 Years of Make Yourself and Beyond’ fall tour

You may not be able to meet Incubus in outer space, but you can totally get the chance to see them live this fall when they head out on the road for their extensive fall tour. On Monday (May 6), the California-founded band unveiled a lengthy tour itinerary to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their third studio album, Make Yourself.

Dubbed the 20 Years of Make Yourself and Beyond tour, the trek will find the band performing at venues across the continent throughout September, October, November, and December. The 39-stop outing includes gigs in major cities such as San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Austin, Atlanta, and more.

The excursion kicks off on Sept. 13 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver and concludes almost three months later on Dec. 7 at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach. Dub Trio, Wild Belle, and Le Butcherettes will open for Incubus throughout the long jaunt.

Make Yourself was such a pivotal moment in our band and we are beyond excited to reintroduce this album to our audience while also showcasing the many musical roads it ultimately led us down,” frontman Brandon Boyd said in a press statement.

Pre-sales begin this Wednesday, May 8, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales start this Friday, May 10, at 10 a.m. local time.

The band has not confirmed whether they will play the album in full or if their setlist will consist of songs from their lengthy discography.

Make Yourself was released in October 1999 and features some of Incubus’ biggest hits such as “Stellar,” “Pardon Me,” and “Drive.” While all three songs reached the top three spots on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart, “Drive” is the act’s only song to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 chart where it peaked at number nine.

System of a Down, Deftones, Incubus to headline Aftershock 2018

Music festival season usually takes place during the spring and summer months, but that doesn’t mean music fans will not get any festivals during the cooler months. On Monday (April 9), Aftershock Music Festival organizers unveiled their lineup for the 2018 incarnation of the annual event. System of a Down, Deftones, Incubus, Alice in Chains, and Godsmack are just some of the bands that will make the trek to California during the second week of October for Aftershock 2018.

For System of a Down, their appearance at Aftershock will not only be their first time playing at the event, it will also mark their first show in the United States in three years. Their confirmed performance also coincides with the 20th anniversary of the group’s self-titled debut; System of a Down was released in 1998.

As if celebrating their debut album’s “China” anniversary wasn’t enough, the group has also unveiled plans to go on a short, weeklong trek coinciding with their appearance at the event. Hitting the road alongside them will be fellow Aftershock performers, At the Drive-In. Those dates can be found on SOAD’s website.

“Sacto, we’re coming for you. Proud that you’re our capital and not DC,” System of a Down’s Serj Tankian said in a press statement.

“It’s been a minute since we’ve played Sacramento, so it just felt right to return by headlining Aftershock,” continues guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian.

Joining System of a Down as one of the headliners this year will be Sacramento-founded band, Deftones. The California guys previously played the event in 2012 and 2015, but this year, they will be one of the big-print acts. Even though the Deftones call the capital of California home, this will be their first headlining gig in their hometown in nearly seven years. This all comes as the guys celebrate their 30th anniversary later this year.

In addition to System of a Down, Deftones, Incubus, Alice in Chains and Godsmack, this year’s lineup will also include Shinedown, 311, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, At the Drive-In, Seether, Jonathan Davis, Bullet For My Valentine, Underoath, Black Veil Brides, Hellyeah, Asking Alexandria, Sevendust, Everlast, GWAR, and many more. According to the official press release from Danny Wimmer Presents, more artists will be announced as the show gets closer.

Aftershock Music Festival will return to Discovery Park in downtown Sacramento during the weekend of Oct. 13-14. Tickets for the two-day show will go on sale beginning this Friday, April 13, at noon PST. General admission and VIP tickets will be available as well as hotel options. Service fees on all tickets purchased will include a 50 cent charity fee for the T.J. Martell Foundation. Attendees are encouraged to buy their tickets as soon as they go on sale because tickets have sold out for three years straight.

SunFest Logo

The lineup for SunFest 2018 is out and like with past years, it looks like festival organizers made it their mission to make sure every music taste is satisfied. On Wednesday (Feb. 21), the official lineup for the 2018 incarnation of the annual South Florida music festival was unveiled. Headlining the four-day music festival this year will be Billy Idol, Girl Talk, Zedd, Incubus, Logic, Rae Sremmurd, Nick Jonas, 311, and Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull.

“We create our lineup to appeal to a variety of people and musical interests,” SunFest executive director Paul Jamieson explained in a statement.

As with past years, Jamieson’s statement still rings true. This year’s roster does have a little bit for every particular music taste as well as those who are interested in stepping out of their comfort zone. Holding down the fort for the pop-loving crowd are acts like Pitbull, Nick Jonas, Zedd, and DNCE while hip-hop fans will be able to enjoy performances by Rae Sremmurd and PartyNextDoor.

For the older fans in the crowd, the music festival was able to secure legendary acts like Billy Idol, who will headline the first night of the event, and KC and the Sunshine Band, who will perform Saturday afternoon. For the rock-loving crowd, bands like Incubus, Grouplove, Dreamers, and 311 will hit the stage throughout the weekend.

SunFest 2018 will invade downtown West Palm Beach from May 3 to May 6. The multi-stage event will return to its home on Flagler Drive right on the waterfront in downtown West Palm Beach. Early bird tickets are currently available on the festival’s website here. Early bird tickets cost $37-$75 with prices increasing on March 9.

The complete artist roster for SunFest 2018 can be seen below while the daily schedule/performance times can be found on SunFest’s website.


Blink-182, Coheed and Cambria, Jack White to headline Bunbury Music Festival 2018

Blink-182, Coheed and Cambria, and Jack White are just some of the bands who make their way to Ohio in early June for this year’s Bunbury Music Festival. On Friday (Jan. 26), the Cincinnati-based music festival unveiled its lengthy and rock band-centric lineup for the 2018 incarnation of the annual event.

Blink-182 spent most of last year on the road touring behind 2016’s release, California, as well as dropping music videos for as many of the record’s tracks as possible. Much like blink, Coheed and Cambria hit the road in the spring of 2017 where they performed their third studio album, Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness, in its entirety at every show.

As for Jack White, Bunbury is another music festival that the musician will perform at during the summer months. Earlier this month, the former White Stripes frontman confirmed not only the release of his third studio album (Boarding House Reach), but also a lengthy tour which includes all his previously announced music festival appearances.

Joining blink-182, Coheed and Cambria, and White on the bill for the music festival’s seventh year will be Incubus, Royal Blood, Foster the People, Third Eye Blind, Dropkick Murphys, Young the Giant, The Front Bottoms, Peter Bjorn and John, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Fitz and the Tantrums, Misterwives, LANY, and many more.

“We are very excited about the lineup we’ve put together for 2018,” says PromoWest Productions’ Scott Stienecker in a press release. “The caliber, strength and depth of this year’s festival is attributed, in large part, to the city of Cincinnati and its continued support to make this one of the premier boutique musical festivals in the country.”

Tickets for the three-day music festival are currently available with three different ticket options to pick from. For more information, head on over to Bunbury’s website here.

Bunbury Music Festival 2018 is set to take place during the weekend of June 1-3 at the music festival’s usual location along the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati. As with previous years, the festival will encompass the entire area throughout Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove.

For now, the complete lineup for the 2018 incarnation of Bunbury Music Festival can be seen below.

In addition to the premiere of the new song, Einziger further elaborated on the new album details.
