Unexpected: Incubus return with grand alt-rock single ‘Nimble Bastard’

Look, well get right to it — the new Incubus song is pretty good.

The California alt-rock band are expected to release their eighth studio album later this year, and if first single “Nimble Bastard” is any indication, it could be a sizable return for Brandon Boyd and crew. “Nimble Bastard” is a grand guitar-rock anthem that demands multiple listens, and it should sound pretty massive when Incubus play the XFinity Center in Mansfield on July 18, the local stop on their summer tour with Jimmy Eat World.

Incubus’ last album was 2011’s If Not Now, When? We’ll post more deets on this new LP whenever we get them; in the meantime, fire up “Nimble Bastard” below and daydream of the days when FM rock radio mattered.
