The American rock band Incubus was established in Calabasas, California in 1991 by Jose Pasillas (drummer), Mike Einziger (lead guitarist), and Brandon Boyd (vocalist) while they were students at Calabasas High School. Alex Katunich joined the band as the bassist later as well as keyboardist and DJ Gavin Koppell. Later Ben Kenney replaced Katunich and Chris Kilmore replaced Koppell.

Incubus achieved even more success with the release of their hit single "Drive" as well as the album "Morning View" in 2001. In 2006 the band released "Light Grenades," their sixth album, in 2006. The album was certified Gold in the U.S. In 2009 Incubus released "Monuments and Melodies," a greatest hits album. The band then toured the U.S., Canada and Japan. The most recent album from the band, "If Not Now, When" came out in July 2011.
Incubus got their big breakthrough with the release of "Make Yourself," their third album, in 1999. After they released the album, the band toured with Buckethead and Primus. "Make Yourself" achieved Gold certification by April 2000, spurred on by the popular single "Pardon Me." By October 2000 the album went Platinum. The band then toured with the Deftones. The fourth single off the album, "Drive" was released in January 2001. The singles was highly successful, making the top ten of Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Incubus has had four No. 1 singles on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart: 2001's "Drive" from the album "Make Yourself," 2004's "Megalomaniac" off of "A Crow Left of the Murder," and "Anna Molly" and "Love Hurts" from the album "Light Grenades."
