Song of the Week: The new lead single “Nimble Bastard” by Incubus

“Nimble Bastard” was released on February 16th, 2017 via Island records as the 1st single off of 8, the 8th studio album by Incubus

Hell yes. New Incubus material to sink your teeth into. And it’s one hell of a track chalk full of relatable lyrics and vocal melodies. It sounds like Incubus material of old but with a fresh tint. Fans new and old should dig this one and look forward to single #2 and the rest of the album which is due to drop sometime in the Spring (I wasn’t able to find an exact release date as of this writing).

Incubus’ last release was back in 2015: the EP entitled Trust Fall which spawned the hit single “Absolution Calling” which scored the Song of the Week back in early March of that year.

The band will be going on tour in the summer with supporting act Jimmy Eat World.

When you land on your feet
You’re a nimble bastard
And you don’t skip a beat
Such a nimble bastard
Salt of the earth
Such a nimble bastard
Yeah, won’t you show, lowly us
How do you see the stars from that far down?
