Young, aggro, and from Los Angeles, Incubus is one of today’s premiere hard rock bands. But one thing setting it apart from its loud and heavy brethren is its strong progression from album to album. Make Yourself (1999), the quintet's sophomore record, was a leap forward from its 1997 debut, S.C.I.E.N.C.E. Morning View (2001), which followed hot on the heels of the group’s breakthrough single "Drive," displayed real maturity with songs like "Nice to Know You," "Circles," and "Blood on the Ground”, while on "I Wish You Were Here," "Just a Phase," "11 a.m.," and "Mexico," Incubus showed a willingness to tread softly, using acoustic guitars and touches of strings to make less noise, but more impact. Brendon O'Brien (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam) produced the follow-up, A Crow Left of Murder (2004), an even more ambitious record that featured singer Brandon Boyd’s most outspoken lyrics yet.

Now, with Light Grenades, Incubus has created a record that reaches back to its roots while forging new sounds. Once lumped in with the nu-metal brigade, Incubus proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that it is simply one of the decade’s great hard-rock bands.
