There is a saying in the music industry that goes something like this…
'It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice'
A saying that can whole-heartedly be linked to the Californian band Incubus.
Incubus are a band who are very important as far as being pioneers, creating art via beautiful music with thought provoking lyrics. Since their formation in 1991 they have pushed the boundaries of music by constantly reinventing themselves and raising the bar on each album from ‘Fungus Amoungus’ through to their latest offering ‘If Not Now, When?’
The band were kind enough to let The Music Press come and invade their privacy whilst recently on tour in the UK and what we found was possibly the nicest band on the planet.
Not only did we have a nice long chat with guitarist Mike Einziger, The Music Press was kindly given permission to talk to the bands crew (the unsung hero’s behind the scene who make sure everything runs smoothly).
From everything including monitors and equipment, right through to ‘The Make Yourself Foundation’ the Incubus charity that makes a huge difference to so many.
The Music Press would like to extend our deepest thanks to the band Incubus and all of their crew for allowing us access and a special mention goes out to the Incubus Tour Manager Matthew Murphy for arranging everything and to videographer Francisco Stiglich for the live footage
