Incubus changes it up for new tour

Incubus has been working at the rock ’n’ roll game for so long, they’ve decided it’s time for something different. But luckily for fans, that change doesn’t involve band members or musical direction — they’re simply switching up their already explosive live set.

“We have so many different records and songs to choose from, that we’re playing different sets now,” singer Brandon Boyd told The Associated Press. “We’ll have a couple different set models where eight or 10 songs will be different every night. And were improvising more.”

Boyd and his bandmates, who released the album “A Crow Left of Murder” earlier this year, are excited about revisiting songs they haven’t played in some time.

“We’re doing a lot of stuff that we recorded but never put on any records that a lot of hardcore fans know about from the Internet and from talking to each other,” Boyd said.

Incubus’ revised set lists include old fan favorites like “Crowded Elevator” and songs from their debut album, “S.C.I.E.N.C.E.” When they’re not writing set lists, Incubus pass the time on the tour bus by watching DVDs and exploring cities on their itinerary.

An avid amateur photographer, Boyd always makes sure to pack his cameras. He often sneaks away from the bus to explore the cities where they are playing. “I’m an avid walker,” he said. “I love getting out, and when we have a day off, I’ll walk until I can’t walk anymore.”
