(Feb. 16, 2017 – New York, NY) Multi-platinum alt-rock icons Incubus, celebrating in 2017 the 20th anniversary of their first major label debut album, are releasing the brand new single “Nimble Bastard.” The song is launching with an iHeart Radio world premiere and an appearance on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean program in Incubus’ hometown, Los Angeles. “Nimble Bastard” is the first new music from 8, the aptly titled eighth studio album by Incubus, currently working with producer Dave Sardy (Marilyn Manson, Oasis, Fall Out Boy, LCD Soundsystem, Rage Against The Machine). The album will be arriving this spring on Island Records.
The release of “Nimble Bastard” coincides with the announcement of the first major headline North American summer tour by Incubus since 2015, with support by Arizona-based Jimmy Eat World. The 30-city tour of the U.S. and Canada will open July 6th at Perfect Vodka Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, and wrap up 6-weeks later at White River Amphitheater in Seattle on August 19th. On April 3rd, Incubus will perform at a special fundraising concert for the ACLU at Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center. Starting as a call-to-action on Twitter in response to the recent immigration ban, artist/DJ/producer Zedd has organized WELCOME!, a fundraising concert benefitting the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Incubus will join Daya, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Macklemore, Skrillex, Tinashe and Zedd.
