Incubus Kicks Off 20 Years Of ‘Make Yourself’ In Denver


Alternative rockers Incubus are launching a 39 city trek this weekend celebrating the 20th anniversary of their iconic album ‘Make Yourself.’ The tour kicked off this Friday night September 13that the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado.

Brooklin’s Dub Trio opened the show and delivered a lively set which masterfully combined metal, punk, grunge, and alternative into a rotating blender. The trio of bassiest Stu Brooks, guitarist DP Holmes, and drummer Joe Tomino has just released their first album in eight years ‘The Shape of Dub To Come.’

Taking the stage to a sold-out house of Incubus megafans, the quintet wasted no time jumping into their electric show with the song “Privilege” followed up with “Nowhere Fast” and “Consequence.” After the fourth song in it was clear that the band would play ‘Make Yourself’ sequentially from the beginning to the end. By presenting the album this way, it was exciting to hear some of these lesser known songs performed so effortlessly.

The band continues to be led by vocalist Brandon Boyd who is one of rock’s most enduring frontman. Boyd was again recognizable for his distinguished vocals and stage swagger which all equaled a captivating live performance.  When you add lead guitarist Mike Einziger, drummer Jose Pasillas, bassist Ben Kenney and turntablist Chris Kilmore, this rock group bleeds chemistry and conjunct musicianship. Incubus closed the show with a few fan favorites “Dig” and “Wish You Were Here” arousing a crowd singalong until the house lights ended the night.

‘Make Yourself’ is the bands signature album with hits continuing to flood radio stations around the world. Incubus successfully showcased the music from this period and reminded fans how incredible this history was.
