Incubus fans can breathe a little easier. Despite swirling news reports that the Calabasas outfit would be embarking on an extended hiatus following the upcoming Honda Civic tour with Linkin Park and Mutemath, the band’s manager tells CBS Local that it’s just a natural part of the band’s process.

“Incubus has always taken a bit of a break after making an album and touring in support of it,” the band’s manager Steve Rennie said by phone about their most recent release, If Not Now, When? “After they finish the Honda Civic tour, they’ll have been on the road for a year and a half. Any band would need a break after that.”

The rumors started during a recent press conference when Incubus singer Brandon Boyd said that the band’s plan after the Honda Civic tour “is to have no plan,” according to Billboard.

“Let’s not get locked into the word ‘hiatus,’ said Rennie. “They just need to get rejuvenated and inspired to make their next album.”  Rennie went on to explain that Boyd is contemplating making his second solo album, and that guitarist Mike Einzinger “has a couple of things that he’s working on.”

“Bands like Incubus don’t crank out music on a schedule,” Rennie added. “Taking time to work on other things only adds to what they can bring to the table when they regroup.”

On the same date (August 14) that Incubus kicks of the Honda Civic tour in Boston, the band will also release Incubus Live HQ, a CD/DVD set that captures six intimate L.A. fan-only performances.
