Incubus
June 30, 2002

Their current album "Morning View" debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart back in October and Incubus is in the radio.wazee spotlight this week with the latest single culled from that release, "Are You In?"

The band recently completed the video for "Are You In?," but the clip may never see the light of day in the U.S. The band calls it their best video to date, but apparently it’s a little too risqué for the standards and practices suits in the States. "It's rocking in Europe," says lead singer Brandon Boyd. "The Italians are eating it up like good pasta." He describes it as looking like "a Jay-Z video if you put our faces in there. It's a swingers party going on in like a casino and an abandoned Italian restaurant."

The Calabasas, California-based funk-metal outfit was formed in 1991 by high school friends Boyd (vocals), Mike Einziger (guitars), Alex Katunich (bass) and Jose Pasillas (drums). Within a year of formation the group was regularly playing all-ages clubs throughout Southern California, tapping DJ Lyfe in 1995 to join their ranks for the independently released album "Fungus Amongus." A year later Incubus signed with Immortal Records, issuing their debut EP "Enjoy Incubus" in early 1997. The full-length "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." followed a year later, and the group hit the road in support, eventually landing a spot on the 1998 Family Values Tour. They released "Make Yourself" in 1999, and initial sales were slow, but thanks to the hit singles "Pardon Me" and "Drive," and the group's slot on the 2000 Ozzfest tour, the album was still selling well a year later, going Gold and hitting the Top 40.

Incubus is currently wrapping up the Civic Tour ending up this month in Dallas, Texas. They’ll then finish supporting "Morning View" with another long outing that could keep Incubus on the road until the end of the year.

Guitarist Einzinger and drummer Pasillas recently appeared on reality TV teen queen Kelly Osbourne’s debut single, a cover of Madonna’s 1986 hit "Papa Don’t Preach." Einzinger says that if any spare time opens up, he knows how he’ll spend it: "I want to do all the dancing and choreography on Kelly’s new record – all of it, from start to finish, in one take, actually," he joked. "I would have done the choreography for [her MTV Movie Awards performance], but they found someone before she knew I wanted to be involved in the choreography, 'cause she really didn't know about my background and history in the field of choreography. I think she hired Darrin, from 'Darrin's Dance Grooves.' But I taught him everything he knows, so it's OK."
