Incubus’ Ben Kenney has revealed that he is currently recovering after undergoing surgery for a brain tumor. As such, the bassist will be missing the band’s upcoming shows. During his absence, Tal Wilkenfeld will be filling in.
Kenney said the following:
“Unfortunately last year I found out I had a brain tumor. As soon as I got home from tour I had a successful operation to have it removed. This year I am taking some time away from touring & social media to recover. My friend Tal Wilkenfeld is taking over the bass with Incubus while I’m away. I won’t physically be at the shows but I will be there in spirit. I miss you all and I hope you and your loved ones are safe and in good health 🖤”
The band added:
“To our beloved fans in Costa Rica, Texas and Louisiana:
Our Incubus brother and bandmate, Ben Kenney, is currently recovering from a recent medical procedure and will be unable to perform with us on our upcoming run at the end of the month.
In his absence, our good friend, Tal Wilkenfeld, will be filling in for him on bass and we look forward to performing with her on these shows!
We wish Ben a speedy recovery and can’t wait for him to rejoin us onstage soon!
During a recent interview with SPIN, Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd revealed that the band are working on new music. He says “if all goes according to plan, there’ll be some new music coming from [the group] before [they] hit the road again in January.” He also added:
“There’s no shortage of things to write about, so I’m kind of chomping at the bit, if I’m being honest. I’m almost at the point where I’m text begging, like, ‘Please! Meet me in the band room!’”
According to Billboard, Incubus have sold their publishing catalog to HarbourView Equity Partners. The company also acquired guitarist Mike Einziger’s solo works as well. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it was revealed that it included Incubus tracks like “Drive,” “Love Hurts,” etc. and Einziger’s share of tracks from Avicii, Pharrell Williams, Skrillex, etc. HarbourView Equity Partners were represented by Fox Rothschild, while Incubus were represented by Todd Cooper and Monica Zhang of Greenberg Traurig, LLP.
“Hello everybody, I wanted to take a moment to update you guys as to what was going on with Incubus show postponements. Fortunately nobody has COVID, everyone is healthy and happy. I just threw my back out a few days ago and I’ve never had an experience like this before. I couldn’t as of the past few days really do anything other than just sort of lay there and wait. Today I could take some deep breaths, I’m definitely heading in the right direction. And so we’re gonna be back in the saddle, so to speak, sooner than later. I also want to thank you guys for all the well wishes that have been coming through. We have such amazing listeners and supporters out there, so thank you. And also I’d like to apologize for any inconvenience this may caused for you guys coming to the shows. But we’re gonna be back at it very quickly, I love you guys.”
