Incubus Make Yourself Tour – It’s been 20 Years!


Has it REALLY been 20 years since Make Yourself was released?  Time flies when you’re having fun.  Incubus will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Make Yourself with a North American tour playing the album in it’s entirety.  Some of the venues are smaller, more intimate spaces as opposed to their large amphitheater tour last year.  Loudwire did an interview with the guys discussing the tour and more – view it below:

Pardon me was the song that broke, but it didn’t happen right away. “It was the first time any of us had heard our music on the radio, which was exciting, but it wasn’t met with a great deal of fanfare. We had to go in and massage it three or four different ways before it actually started getting rotation.” singer Brandon Boyd explained. 

Continuing to speak about “Pardon Me,” Boyd describes the experience of a song, birthed from so much pain, bringing Incubus such fortune. “I think that there’s always potential in suffering to have moments of reckoning and to make some sense in the suffering … You have an arena where you have permission to express yourself in the larger sense. Sometimes it comes out dark, sometimes it comes out light and sometimes you’re able to make sense of both of those things.

Anticipating how it may feel to revisit an entire album two decades after its release Mike Einziger shares, “I feel really appreciative that people really connected with [Make Yourself]. I think it’ll be meaningful to play those songs with that in mind, as a collective body of work from a specific period of time versus one song here, one song there. We’re honoring that specific group of songs.”

The band’s 20 Years of Make Yourself and Beyond tour begins in September – you won’t want to miss this run of dates, it’s bound to be “stellar” – see what we did there? For the full list of dates, click here.
