"FROM RAGS TO RICHES AND BACK TO RAGS, INSOLENCE IS SACRIFICING EVERYTHING TO REACH FOR THE STARS, AGAIN."

Hear how they rose above the industry in a struggle to survive, and are achieving the All-American Dream, the second time around.

San Jose, CA (January 3, 2008) Insolence refused to be a one hit wonder. In fact, they also refused to change their music when Warner Brothers told them to. They rebelled against the music industry, stood strong, and are afloat enough to talk about it.

Aside from the battles with drugs, the ongoing changing of band members and constant family strains, as is expected to exist within any rock band, Insolence has never stopped, and has never been stopped.

They've helped shape the Bay Area's music scene. They've been on movie soundtracks and in movies. They've played around the world and back again.

They've toured with System of a Down and Incubus, enough said. They've had songs on video games and television shows.

They've beaten Linkin Park and Korn on Japan 's version of the Billboard Charts just this past summer. They've broken stereotypes, broken genres and broken rules. And they're back to conquer the industry again on U.S. soil.

Now, twelve years, two major labels, 200,000 sold records, and a bazillion band members later, Insolence is about to venture on a month-long, nationwide tour with Suburban Noize Records' Billboard Chart-ers, Hed P.E., Kingspade (of Kottonmouth Kings), and Subnoize Souljaz beginning January 24, 2008. Following their expansive U.S. tour celebrating the release of their seventh album, ?gAudio War,?h on February 19, 2008, Insolence will venture off to Japan for a tour from March 9, 2008 to March 19, 2008 that will surely delight . Japanese fans who have had the luxury of having ?gAudio War?h since its special release in Japan in August, 2007.

Looking very forward to getting reacquainted with American and Japanese fans, Insolence is happy to tell their story to anyone who dares to ask. They will be available for interviews and press while on tour, from January 24, 2008 to February 25, 2008 in the United States , and from March 9, 2008 to March 19, 2008 in Japan.

Concert-goers can find tour dates and details on the band's website, www.insolence1.com and on their Myspace page, www.myspace.com/insolenceone.

The Heavy Hitters tour, which is a co-headline tour with KINGSPADE, promises to be one of the freshest tours of early 2008. KINGSPADE is just straight dope and they possess the freshness of the KOTTONMOUTH KINGS, but with a nice hip-hop twist.

This is an official takeover!"

Bio

Hip-hop, reggae and hardcore influenced band, INSOLENCE began in 1995, in the depths of the streets of San Jose, California. Within months, INSOLENCE quickly formed a substantial following, pulling over a thousand people at local shows that eventually led them to hit the touring circuit with several national acts, including but not limited to Rancid, Incubus, System of a Down, Sevendust, Janes Addiction, Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm, Adema, Machine Head, Staind and Cypress Hill.

With a growing fan base, INSOLENCE spread to other countries, as they toured through Europe in the summer of 1998 and 1999, and teamed with their ex -management, Nova Entertainment, signed a record deal with Madonna's record label, Maverick Records. In 2000, the band released their first major-label album, Revolution, to see great success. Shortly thereafter, the band began touring in the states in support of the album, alongside Black Sheep, Hoobastank, Ill Nino, Soulfly, Corporate Avenger, Kottonmouth Kings, and Insane Clown Posse.

The single, Poison Well, was circulated regularly on MTV's The Real World, Road Rules and TRL. Songs from the album were also featured on the soundtrack to Adam Sandler's, Little Nicky, and the trailer for Robert Redford's, The Last Castle. Live performances were aired on USA Networks and Farmclub, alongside Nelly, Destiny's Child and Static-X. INSOLENCE was then flown out to Toronto to film a cameo for the Sylvester Stallone movie, Driven. Their tracks were also featured on Sean Palmer's, Pro Snowboarder for Play Station 2.
INSOLENCE has also been signed to Warner Music, with great success, and during their career, has sold well over 170,000 records.

They have just released the full-length album, Audio War, in Japan to great success. less than two weeks after its release, Audio War made it to the # 6 spot on best-selling releases for Tower Records Japan, beating Linkin Park and Avril Lavigne. It has inspired InterFM, Tokyo's largest and most popular major FM radio station to give INSOLENCE a weekly radio show, for which the band has so far teamed up with Papa Roach and 311 for interviews, with more plans in the works.

February in 2008, Insolence toured nationwide hitting 30 major cities in US with Hed PE, Kingspade of Kottonmouth Kings and Subnoize Souljazz. In March they toured with 10-FEET and Maximum The Hormon in Japan. In April, they toured with 4Lyn in Germany.

Blue Sky from Audio War has been spun over 200 times at KCNL FM and their video was ranked #3 at California Music Channel. Blue Sky is also nominated for Hollywood Music Award 2008.

They released Beats Not Bombs in December, 2008 in support of world peace and this song was officially supported by Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and Nagasaki City Peace Project.
