“Insolence visited Hiroshima A-Bomb Museum and met Steven Leeper who is a chairman of the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation, managing A-Bomb museum and other peace activities. Mr. Leeper was quite busy meeting with the Hiroshima mayor preparing for the Novel Peace Award Receiver's summit. Mr. Leeper explains how difficult it is to reduce nuclear weapon due to complex political and business concessions and how media may filter out the fact that there is worldwide protest of the war. He expressed that the "champion" approach is directly reaching people such as Insolence's activities delivering the peace message through the live shows to young people.”
“while on a nationwide Japanese PR tour, Insolence visited and decided to donate all of the proceeds from "Beats, Not Bombs" to the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and the Nagasaki City Peace Promotion Office to support world peace and cultural and racial equality and tolerance. Both the museum and office have graciously offered their support for the project.”
“About Project Konflict/
This is the most political album Insolence ever made. The concept goes back to Martin Luther King Jr. who was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African American civil rights movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.
Insolence perceives current society as apathetic towards wars and prejudice compared to the 60s' civil rights movement and the 70s' anti war activities during the Vietnam. Insolence hopes that through Project Konflict, they convey their message to the young people, the next generation of our society and create youth who are conscious and willing take action against war and prejudice.”
"Insolence,...The return of rasta-metal!"
“Insolence refused to be a one hit wonder. In fact, they also refused to change their music when record labels 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. They've broken stereotypes, broken genres and broken rules.
“I was wondering time has not been passed no so fast but it has been already 10 years since Insolence released their first album "Revolution."During 10 years, band members have been changed and the record label has been changed. However Insolence has turned those situation into establishing their own music style and created their latest record "Project Konflict." I have to say that this turned out to be the best album of Insolence. Their reggae, dub, rap inflenced heavy mixture rock sound became richer and even more creative. You must see their live shows and feel their music!
