Hello and thank you for taking the time to read and stop by. We are INSITES, a rock band and national recording artists comprised of law enforcement officers, making music since 2008. We are currently touring and performing in support of our latest endeavor, The Rockers Behind the Badge Project, promoting suicide prevention and working with our agency’s Employee Assistance Program in getting the word out to all officers and their families that assistance is available to them in times of need. This year’s theme is “It’s OK to Call”, a campaign designed to inform officers of the programs available to them and their loved ones through EAP, and to remove the stigma of reaching out for help during difficult times. The campaign kicked off in September of 2015 with a live performance downtown DC and many guest speakers who came together to get the message out. Needless to say, it was a huge success. So to build on this momentum, we have decided to further our endeavors and turn our attention to our next EP, sales proceeds of which will all be donated to the Roger Von Amelunxen Foundation. Here is a brief explanation of who they are and what they do, please visit their website at www.rogerfoundation.org for more information:
Roger L. Von Amelunxen was a Customs Patrol Officer who was slain in 1980. His family started the Foundation in 1982 in memory of their son. The Foundation is non-profit and incorporated in the State of New York.
The Foundation's purpose is to provide financial assistance to U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees and their immediate families nationwide. The Foundation's administrative expenses are less than 3%. Since its inception, the Foundation has disbursed over 5.2 million dollars to what is now CBP and ICE employees and their families.
This foundation has been doing incredible work since 1982, and we are proud and honored to have the opportunity to help them with their great cause. They have come to the assistance of many officers, some of who suffer and have suffered from disabling diseases, specifically the rash of cancer outbreaks in some of our officers.
Insites is currently signed to Melodic Revolution Records out of Orlando, FL, www.mrrmuisc.com. We have recently released three new singles, “Tattoo”, “Etched in Stone” (a tribute to law enforcement), and “Wait”, which was produced by Grammy nominated Brian Lanese of Los Angeles, CA, is featured on the documentary “Code 9 – Officer Needs Assistance” written and produced by Deborah Louise Ortiz and Dangerous Curves Productions of N.Y. “Code 9” is a powerful documentary that explores and brings awareness to the darker side of law enforcement as it tells the stories of police officers and their families who are now suffering the mental anguish of the careers they chose, which unfortunately has led some to suicide.
We are scheduled to go into the studio to record a three to four song EP which will be produced by Robert Dante of Velvet Basement Studios in Miami, FL who over a decade hase worked with numerous Platinum recording artists and producers such as Armin Van Buuren, Gavin DeGraw, Waka Flocka, Brisco, Salaam Remi, Rick Finch (K.C. and the Sunshine Band), Alfie Agius (The Fixx), Jim Jonsin(Usher,Lil Wayne), Jerome Foster..AKA Knobody (Jay-Z, Akon, Big Pun), to name a few. This EP will also be mixed and mastered by Grammy nominated Brian Virtue. Brian has worked with some of the best rock bands in the world. Here are a few: Janes’s Addiction, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Audioslave, Chevelle, Deftones, Korn and even KISS!
As you can imagine, working with such talent can be a great expense, so we need your help in covering recording costs, studio time and production fees. As we mentioned before, all proceeds from the new EP sales will be donated to the Roger Von Amelunxen Foundation.
We believe that in working with such talent behind our next EP will enable us to produce a top notch product with high potential for International mainstream radio airplay which would translate into higher sales and thus more funds for the foundation! How can you help? Donate today, help us reach our goal so that we can help them take care of our own!
In exchange for your donation we will send you our INSITES LP and our most recent singles. Further, we will send you the three song EP before anyone has a chance to hear it! We have our sights set high with this project and we hope that with your help and kind donations, we can achieve these and many more goals. Insites music can also be streamed on Spotify and Sound Cloud.
