Contact Details

Insert is an Eclectic Hard Rock band formed in 2003. The band consists of founders Johannes Rebane (Vocals/Violin), and David Whiteside (Bass/Vocals), as well as Erik Leonhard (Guitar), Colin Parker (Drums), and Kevin Kim (Keyboard). They are influenced by various bands, such as A Perfect Circle, System of a Down, and Radiohead. Musically, Insert looks to combine the heavy, aggressive sounds of metal with the softer, melodic sounds of alternative rock. Consequently, Insert has achieved a very diverse and unique sound (especially with the use of an electric violin), and makes for a very interesting musical experience. In January of 2005, Insert recorded their first 5-track Demo CD at The Hive Creative Labs over the course of 2 all-night sessions. In January 2006, Insert started work on a 12-track independent album which is due for release some time in May 2007. Chech us out at or
