In 2018, INCUBUS will return to Australia for their first headline tour in six years to play three shows along the east coast in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. These shows will be the first chance for fans to hear new tracks like ‘Nimble Bastard’ and ‘Glitterbomb’ from their aptly titled eighth studio album, 8. As well as a plethora of hits from their expansive back catalogue spanning the past 20 years.

Three-piece band LE BUTCHERETTES took to the stage of the Enmore Theatre with a bang. We were captivated with the diverse vocals ranging from a classic style, to the heavy scream vocals in some tracks. A high energy and bizarre performance played out before us, that I am sure left most of the audience wondering what had just happened.

Through their double decade-long rise to the top, INCUBUS have notched up over 13 million album sales and have amassed an arsenal of sing-a-long hits including Drive, Nice To Know You, Wish You Were Here, Are You In?, Pardon Me, Megalomaniac, A Certain Shade Of Green… come on, you know you’re guilty of belting out any one of these tunes on a drunken Karaoke night!.

Review by Billy Geary
It’s fair to say that over the years Californian natives Incubus have traversed more than a few genres in their music, giving rise to one of the more diverse musical fan bases around at present. This was perfectly evident on Tuesday night as everyone from middle agers to remnant 90s grunge kids made the short trek to Festival Hall from Southern Cross Station for a dose of Incubus.
Sydneysiders Papa vs. Pretty had the envious job of opening up proceedings, putting on a tight set for the slowly filling room. The trio have a had a massive last year, which has seen them come on in leaps and bounds, especially in terms of their live show. Their high energy set of melodic rock was perfect fodder for the early arriving punters, garnering a big cheer from the entire room as their set concluded. If this set is anything to go by, expect big things from these three gentlemen in 2012.
Adelaide hiphop outfit Hilltop Hoods debut at #1 this week on the ARIA Album Chart, with their new album “State of the Art” taking over top spot from Black Eyed Peas, as the band achieves their second number one album following “The Hard Road” in 2004. “Chase That Feeling”, the first single from “State of the Art”, has jumped four spots to sit comfortably at #16 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
