Brandon Boyd surfaces with first solo album

It’s been almost four years since Incubus released Light Grenades, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that news of frontman Brandon Boyd’s first solo album went almost unnoticed by the rest of the music world. He’s been able to stay busy with many of his non-musical endeavors lately, but get your JNCO’s ready because the itch to create sound has finally gotten a hold of bionic-legged brothel dweller once again.

Antiquiet reports that Boyd’s The Wild Trapeze drops this Tuesday, July 6th, and the video for the set’s first single – “Runaway Train” – is available now. The clip is a trippy desert jam session that sees the 34-year-old part-time printmaker/author strumming the similar (albeit, more mellow) riffs that we’ve come to know and love from Incubus over some big ass tribal drums.  The three-and-a-half minute clip also gives fans a glimpse of a few of Boyd’s own handmade, one-of-a-kind, prints, and boats some pretty nifty stop motion animation to boot.

There’s no word on a tour, but for now you can check out the video below, then head over to the singer’s official website to see what visual goodies he’s been cooking up lately.
