Let’s face it. The world moves fast these days, and Los Angeles based alternative rock duo Insect is looking to slam it into overdrive.
“This is an exciting time for music,” says singer Mike Logan. “Never before has so much power been at the artist’s disposal. Our job is simple. Grab all available technology and rev it past the limit.”
The Live Show:
For Insect, pushing their stage performance meant condensing an arena style show—lasers, lighting, video, and smoke—into portable units for touring. In the process, they’ve created a series of steel cages, nicknamed The Hive, which fit any size venue.
“Insect definitely puts on a one of a kind performance,” says Ashley Caperello from Re-Wire Productions. “It’s an extremely energetic show with fantastic crowd interaction.”
A dark mesh of alternative based electronic rock. With the EP release of Digital Mass, Insect takes an unflinching approach to their music, tackling subjects like obsession, pornography, and the proliferation of high school violence.
“Digital Mass is a dark, moody album that shows great imagination and thematic work… Very effectively shining a light on several of the flaws of the human condition”- ReGen Magazine.
The Video Art of Insect:
In fall 2008, Insect starred in and directed the video for SuperVillain, which landed them several high profiles gigs.
The band is now in post-production for Body Snatchers, a special effects juggernaut, which chronicles a dark, cyberpunk future.
“Technology today has freed us to explore other creative avenues. If you would’ve told us when we started this project that we’d be directing our own videos, we’d have thought you were crazy,” says keyboardist Christopher Allan Poe. “All I can say is that there’s never been a better time to be alive.”
