Incubus announce hiatus, Brandon Boyd working on “weird pop” solo record

Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd has spoken of his upcoming solo album, as his band go on something of a hiatus.

“Incubus is taking a break,” he told Rolling Stone recently. “It’s going to look like a hiatus by the end of it”.

But Boyd isn’t sitting around licking his wounds, as he’s set to release a solo LP shortly.

“It’s different from Incubus in the sense that there was a committee of two as opposed to a committee of five,” he said of the new release. “So it’s a lot more piano and rhythm, melodic weird pop. It’s like oddball pop”.

We should expect the unnamed full-length sooner rather than later also, says Boyd.

“It’s done, it’s mastered. It’ll probably come out sometime this summer. It’s ready to come out now, but logistics and stuff like that”.
