INSIGHT

visit INSIGHT on facebook   In 1989, after releasing and spreading cassette demos, INSIGHT released their first 7 inch, Standing Strong, and then re-released the 7 inch under the name, What Will It Take (1990). While only together for a short amount of time, their passionate lyrics of drug-free ethics and animal rights consciousness would help set the stage for the growing scene and many bands to come.
