Ren suggested we start a thread discussing support bands for the upcoming world tour!! Who would you all like to see open for Incubus? Who deserves the shot?!
Let's hear your responses folks!!
I think Liam Finn might be a perfect candidate. He's got a new album coming out..no tour dates as of yet. He's a bit experimental.A bit pop, a bit folk.A great songwriter and he's from Auckland New Zealand.
I'd love to see if the idea of Ben opening could come to fruition - that's if he doesn't get too tired from playing to sets in a row!
If not, then Robert Francis is apparantly working on a new record, so may be ready to tour soon:
Or Lawrence Arabia may be a good choice:
Just another thought, Detroit Social Club are a band from the UK who have just set up their own label, so may be willing to tour as a support in order to publicise it.
One Republic. The opening rhythm in this song reminds me a little bit of 'Isadore'. I like their music, very eclectic, like incubus!
They've toured together before, so they should just do it again for old time's sake. I'd see Deftones a third time. I met them the last couple of times.
Maybe something like this could happen again?
Val Emmich would be a great support act, if you're into the idea of including independent artists.
I'd say Kaki King, with band. Her latest album, Junior, fits with the rocking side of the band, while much of he past music can set the mood for slower songs. She is completely different than Incubus is, but still would fit it I think.
I saw someone mention Biffy Clyro. Great band, one of my favorites, but not sure if it's a great fit with Incubus. Then again, opening-acts hardly ever fit the band they open for.
In Europe, Manchester Orchestra would be a great opener. Great band, music kinda fits and deserves some promo in Europe.
Here's my two cents,
How about these girls, WARPAINT, they have a new album out "The Fool". This song, Majesty, is one of my favourite. I think they are from the UK. This song kinda shows their diversity, give it a full listen. Enjoy.
