Wow....that was a struggle. But everyone has off nights, I guess. Especially since it's the first performance in a while.

Hopefully, with a few more shows before the tour starts, they'll be in good form.

We should give them some time to get back on tracks, sure the summer tour will sound truly better.

Just listened to Drive. I was honestly expecting worse based on the comments, but I suppose that song would be the easiest of the 3 for him. Can't seem to find any clips of the other 2 songs yet.

His lower notes were fine. It just seemed like he was having some trouble with his mid range-chest voice. He couldn't belt like he usually does. It could just be a matter of not warming up properly, or maybe due to the fact that they went on so late at the event. Both could have affected his voice. I'm sure he'll be fine once they're in full swing again.

I think it's partly to do with the show. I'm sure they weren't sound checked like they are for their own tour and probably didn't have their sound guy. Just eq'ing the mic can make a world of difference as well as his level in the monitors. Picture Brandon or any professional singer at a karaoke bar. They typically sound like crap. Not making excuses, but I think this is part of the issue.

Nothing new, but fun little interview.

Also might put a bit of the Ben-doomsayers more at ease, seeing how he's in this interview.

Brandon riding the struggle bus on Nimble Bastard. The song is a rocker live though.

Did anyone watch any of the other performances? I actually ended up watching pretty much the whole event and he was clearly not the only one having trouble with pitch. I personally noticed more than a few times where other singers were pretty off. The fact that they were in an arena has a lot to do with that I'd say, not to mention there was such quick turnover times in between acts.

Thanks for this! Live debuts are always welcome here.

We'll get better video and performances once the tour actually starts :D

Once the rust gets knocked off there's no doubt they will kill this summer as per usual.

Mad Chemist, I only saw Skrillex, so no vocals. But yeah, maybe it had to do with a bad setup. Fact is that Brandon is just getting older and very few singers get better with age. No biggy, nitpicking these videos is easy, but Im sure it wont be as noticable when we are actually at shows.

The interview was fun and uplifting even if they didnt really say anything interesting.

Not as bad as I was expecting. Live debuts are usually a little shaky but that was all right.

Man, I wish Ben would sing on Incubus' songs. At least something à la The Warmth @ Red Rocks.

He was more involved on back-up vocals during that ACLU-show then I can remember.

It's good to see all of them talking, especially Ben. Long time we didn't see the whole band together like that.

Hahaha... wow. I wouldn't consider him "almost bald". Dude is 41, I think his hair looks fine.
About him riding skrillexcock, yeah he seems to be enjoying that.

I think I saw every interview since February 16th, Dave Sardy has never been mentioned. I don't really understand why, the guy did a great job. He doesn't mention Incubus anymore on social medias too.

Brandon mentions him as pushing him vocally. But I can't blame Sardy for pulling back - Skrillex has totally hijacked him. Though it wasn't perfect I'd have liked to have heard the whole album mixed like the first version of NB

I think Brandon mentioned Sardy a few times.
