Incubus celebrate the 20th anniversary of their major label album debut with Jimmy Eat World and Judah and The Lion in Austin

Headlining their first North American tour since 2015, alt-rock icons Incubus returned to the capital of Texas as part of a 30-city run. The multi-platinum band from Calabasas, California, celebrating in 2017 the 20th anniversary of their major label album debut, sold out the Austin360 Amphitheater to fans of all ages.

The show began with “Love in a Time of Surveillance”, a new song from 8, their aptly titled eighth studio album. Although the tour focused mainly on their new songs, they also played some of their early music, including “Redefine” and “Sick Sad Little World,” much to the enjoyment of their diehard fans. Just for fun, they even played a short Pink Floyd “Wish You Were Here” outro and snippet of “Tom Sawyer” by Rush. While the band has been touring for over 20 years, they show no signs of slowing down. Lead singer Brandon Boyd was as energetic as ever and the band sounded incredible.

The 8 Tour was supported by Arizona rock band Jimmy Eat World, who Consequence of Sound coined “one of the best pop punk bands of all time.” Perhaps less well-known was the opening band, Judah & The Lion. With sounds of jaunty alt-folk abetted by heavy beats, fuzzed-out synths and gigantic choruses, they have been named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Artists to know in 2017.”
