It's in the autoharp/dulcimer family, for sure, but I'm not sure what this particular version is called. I'll do some research.

ETA: It looks like it might be a version of a Bulbul Tarang, essentially an Indian banjo.

ETA 2:

I believe the model Brandon has is called a Shahi Baaja

Make Yourself ranked #6 on Loudwire's Top 15 Albums of 1999. I forgot how many great albums came out that year. Cant believe its 20 years later. Waiting impatiently to see what's up with Make Yourself 2.0

Man, the fall of 1999 produced some amazing music! Make Yourself, RATM's "The Battle of L.A." and Fiona Apple's "When The Pawn..." came out within days of each other. Those three albums in particular defined my freshman year of college. Make Yourself was the last of the three that I discovered, but it's the album that ultimately had the biggest effect on me.

Can't wait to see what the guys do for the 20th anniversary.

So for anyone who missed it: the full interview Brandon did with Scott Lipps in december is up on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icfRSisSaGQ

Unfortunately, all the interesting bits (Brandon's favorite song being one he worked on the night before the interview) were already out there. And he says some stuff about how he wanted Here in my Room as a single. Besides that it's a run of the mill interview with Brandon about inspiration, the history of Incubus and a bit about his art and other projects.

Slight rant:
I always wonder why every 40/50-minute interview I hear with Brandon is 20 minutes about how Incubus came to be. 'So how did you guys start as a band? You and Jose were in school together right?' 'And that's when Drive blew up right?' It really is a waste of time and of much more interesting subjects to talk about. It always feel like poor interview prep to me, being a journalist myself. The only interesting/new information that came from this interview was from a caller question, which in itself was not a very original question.
I get that these podcasts and radio shows are for a broader audience, but there's nothing left to dig for in that story, Strycker did that all in the KROQ-talk, which did offer some cool new tid bits about the early years, because it felt like Strycker actually did his research and the whole interview was set up to talk about their path to success.

Band announced as playing Shaky Knees festival in Atlanta - looks a brilliant line up, them, Beck, Tears for Fears and Yellow Days on the same day. Gary Clark Jr, Mark Lanegan and Tame Impala also playing.

Also new snippet of Mike jamming on drums with Ben on bass on the band's insta story.

Mike just posted a pic of Jon Theodore (Queens of the Stone Age, The Mars Volta) and Jose together in the band room. If that would lead to a guest appearance, that would be pretty cool.

Just looked it up - only on A Night Without Cars, apparently. Although Dave Sardy also played on it, which I didn't know: https://www.discogs.com/Brandon-Boyd-Th ... se/2456123

Also, Jon Theodore played drums with Mike on keys on the Jack U and Justin Bieber performance at the Grammys.

First time ever someone replaces a member for a show? I can't think of another time.

I know Ben missed some shows on the Light Grenades tour (I think in Japan), but I think they just played an acoustic set instead. Probably be a bit weird to do that headlining a festival - although Eddie Vedder is on the next night.

Jon Theodore is such a powerful drummer, will be interesting to hear if it's much different from Jose.

Yeah, in 2007 or 2008 they did their first and only shows in China acoustic because Ben was out sick.

I'm guessing the fact that this is a headlining festival show doesn't make that an option this time around. You could easily do an acoustic set with these four guys left. Kil on the keys. But this is option is pretty exciting. Jon Theodore is great and I'm really curious to how it will sound, doubt it will be much different, but still very interesting to see.

I wish Jose a speedy recovery. It's gonna be a different vibe without Jose, but I know Jon will do a fantastic job!

ETA:

New show added-

Incubus to play Musikfest 2019 on August 7th in Bethlehem, PA

https://www.mcall.com/entertainment/lehigh-valley-music/mc-ent-incubus-musikfest-announcment-20190227-story.html

This is further cementing my theory that, if they are going to do a solo US headline tour this year, it will be between June and August.

ETA 2:

Incubus will be playing Ohana Fest on Sept 28th in Dana Point, CA
