Incubus is an American rock band from Calabasas, California. The band was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, lead guitarist Mike Einziger, and drummer Jose Pasillas while enrolled in Calabasas High School and later expanded to include bassist Alex “Dirk Lance” Katunich, and Gavin “DJ Lyfe” Koppell; both of whom were eventually replaced by bassist Ben Kenney and DJ Kilmore respectively.

Fun Fact

Incubus band members lived together during the making of their fourth album Morning View. The band believes in a very close knit recording process and lived together while recording Morning View and recorded Megalomaniac in lead guitarist, Mike Einziger’s, living room. They have voiced feeling that being in close proximity to one another is important during the writing and recording process.
