It's a very exiting time for fans – the band have just released their first single from the upcoming album in the form of a lyric video, which you can listen to below!! “Nible Bastard” is a fun and energetic, carefree song. It goes right back to the band's roots and the guitar-led sound that was their signature wen kicked off with with the album “Make Yourself,” and its very popular singles “Stellar” and “Pardon Me”. They went on to achieve massive mainstream success with their next album “Morning View”, which spawned the hits “Warning,” “Nice to Know You,” and “Wish You Were Here” and granted the band a following that would see them through their journeys across genres and continents, applying everything they learned to their music and constantly evolving and changing, chameleon-like, in their sound. We've loved every moment of it, but their oldest fans, of their oldest sound, will be most thrilled of all to see that “8” is taking Incubus back to their simpler, guitar-led roots – old sound, new songs!
