INCUBUS is an American rock band formed in 1991. Their first release, Fungus Amongus, was released by the band’s own independent label in 1995 and resulted in signing a record deal with Immortal Records. Their biggest commercial success came after releasing their 1999 album, Make Yourself. The album went platinum and the single promoting it, Drive, reached number one on Modern Rock Charts and Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. Their most recent release, the 2011 album, If Not Now, When?, was followed by an 18 months of touring. The band also took part in a participatory media exhibit and real-time documentary called Incubus HQ Live that allowed unprecedented fan access and interaction. Footage, music and art from the seven day event became available as a special edition box set in 2012. Currently, the artists are finishing works on the new material and their gig during Orange Warsaw Festival 2015 will be their first appearance in Poland ever.

Their first release abroad came out in 2011, with the Portuguese label Discotexas. The premiere of Cairo was a new beginning for Kamp! and allowed them to explore new directions in music, resulting in releasing their self-titled debut album. Dreampop compositions, next to more house-like sounds were well received and resulted in over 10 000 album copies sold and a solid reputation for playing gigs and festivals around the world – in Shanghai, London or even Los Angeles.
Late summer last year, Kamp! got into the Red Bull studios in Madrid, where they came up with completely new material. Dirty and a little bit retro Baltimore EP was released in August 2014. Their gig during Orange Warsaw Festival will be their first live performance in 2015.
