Incubus- If Not Now, When
One of my favorite bands are back after a much long hiatus with their 7th studio album If Not Now, When. At the end of their close for their last album Light Grenades (2006) the band went on a hiatus, vocalist Brandon Boyd stated
“It’s not that we were burned out being in a band or being in this band; I think that we, collectively, were feeling like if we didn’t step away from this monster that we created then it would begin to consume us. We had to plant some roots, lest we start to write songs about living on a tour bus. So we had to fall in love, we had to fall out of love, we had to make homes.
The band reunited in August of 2010 to start work on If Not Now, When and enlisted producer Brendan O’ Brein who worked on the band previous albums Light Greneades (2006) and A Crow Left of the Murder (2004). Much of the album was record while the band wrote the songs , which was something very new to the group. The album addresses romance in an undertone and overtone sense. The title is very poignant to life’s reference, If Not Now When?
