“Insanity Wave” in 1993 and the "Go Off" album in 1995. After a good pile of gigs, and a change of label to Roto Records, the group travelled across seas to Chicago to record their second album with Jeff Murphy (of Shoes fame) at Short Order Recorder. The album "Do The Worm" saw the light of day in 1997. In 1999 a double cd compilation was put out under the title of "33 * 3" by Peermusic´s record label Pressure.
This double cd compiled all the band´s official recordings to that day and several unreleased tracks (mainly live radio recordings an spare tracks released in several –hard to find- compilations). In year 2000 Insanity Wave recorded their last album titled “The Minor league”. For this purpose the band flew to Kernersville, North Carolina to record with the mighty Mitch Easter at his Fidelitorium studios. Mitch Easter, producer of R.E.M., Velvet Crush or Pavement amongst others helped the band move several steps up the ladder in order to accomplish their best recording.
All through these years, Insanity Wave has not stopped playing gigs, whether in Spain (in small venues or big festivals like Benicassim) or in Ireland, France or Portugal, has also participated in chart topping compilations such as "Generation Next Vol. 1" (1998) or in several film soundtracks like "La mujer mas fea del mundo" (1999), Jaime Chavarri´s “Besos para todos”, Pascal Jongen`s “Menos es más” or the Goya award short-film winner "Siete cafes por semana". Also the Brazilian label Paradise Records released “Go off” in 1996 and the cool New York based label SpinART put out "Do the Worm" in the USA in 1998. Currently the band is still going strong, playing acoustic and full band gigs with a new and rejuvenated line-up.
In 2006 they've been touring UK. One of the gigs at "The Most famous club in the world" THE CAVERN (Liverpool) at the International Pop Overthrow Festival. In the summer of 2007 the band has visited Mitch Easter in Kernersville one more time to record their new album that will be released before 2008. Read more on Last.fm.
