Incubus Manager Downplays Brandon Boyd's Hiatus Comments

Incubus CBS

The manager of Incubus has played down reports the rock band is set to take another lengthy hiatus, insisting the musicians just need a rest after constant touring.

The five-piece previously took an extended break in 2008, before regrouping the following year (09), and frontman Brandon Boyd suggested they are ready to scale back commitments once again after completing a series of summer (12) dates.

He told, "We have no plans, to tell you the truth, at the moment. I have been tinkering around, potentially, with a second solo record. That's probably the most likely scenario. But, as far as Incubus right now, we'll probably take another break. Hopefully it (their hiatus) won't be as long as before."

However, Incubus' manager, Steve Rennie, insists the comments have been taken out of context, and the band will just take a short rest before resuming work.

Katy Perry feared she would be ''strip-searched'' by her parents if she was spotted carrying any rock music as a youngster.

The 'Part Of Me' hitmaker worried her minister mother and father would find out that she had been listening to heavy music they prohibited, but she once managed to sneak an Incubus CD into her house without them noticing only to break it in half by accident.

She said: ''I wasn't really allowed to listen to anything besides gospel music, so I'd sneak in different CDs.

Brandon Boyd Recalls His Personal 9/11 Experience

Brandon Boyd Incubus

Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd put aside his feelings of helplessness following the 9/11 atrocities so he and his band could send a message of hope to the devastated survivors.

As America plans to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, many celebrities are recalling where they were when two hijacked commercial planes hit the Twin Towers in New York, while a third crashed into the Pentagon in Virginia and a fourth crash landed in Pennsylvania.

And rocker Boyd has opened up about his personal account of the fateful day, revealing he was staying a mile away from the World Trade Center buildings at the Soho Grand Hotel on the night of September 10, 2011 - and he and a friend awoke just shortly before the planes crashed into the Twin Towers.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, he says, "It was such a gorgeous day. I had the windows open so I could listen to the glorious hum of the city... (And then) I heard the first plane go over, which sounded like it went right over our hotel. I said to the young woman I was dating at the time, 'That seems awfully low for a plane to be flying.'

Kilmore, who obtained his first restraining order against Koppell in 2003, claims the furious musician "asked me to fight him right there and raised his fists to me."

Koppell then demanded that Kilmore lift the previous ban, allegedly ranting, "You will get killed if you don't lift that order... People get killed in the street for that."

Incubus, Monuments and Melodies Album Review

I've never been a massive fan of Incubus, but I don't really know why. I have enjoyed all of the songs that have garnered airplay in the UK, but I understand they're a considerably bigger deal in their native US. Of course, when you've been active for 18 years it's understandable that you build up a bit of a fan base. Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger and the rest of the band have undoubtedly had a great career, and it's reflected in some of the tracks on this album; which are transcendent- the big singles: Megalomania, Drive and Wish You Were Here are always going to be great songs, and there's not really any dispute about that.
