Where were you the last time Incubus released a new album? Go ahead and think for a bit; after all, it’s been a couple years.
But for fans of the rock band from Calabasas, California, the wait is nearing its close. Overnight, guitarist Mike Einziger posted a new video to his Instagram with news that the recording of Incubus’ next album is underway.
“Our first day of tracking!” he exclaimed with the hashtag #incubusnewalbum. In the clip, drummer Jose Pasillas can be seen laying down a drum track while a jangly electric guitar rhythm is heard alongside him.
The news comes after first indications that the wheels were turning for new Incubus material back in July. Einziger told Radio.com that he and frontman Brandon Boyd were “scheming” and in the process of creating new music together.
“You know everybody’s got a lot of things going on but we’re slowly bringing out focus back to the band and everybody’s excited about it because we’ve had enough time away from it to where it’s exciting for everyone,” he said. “There’s definitely some really great stuff coming.”
