It was not until 2012 that a stable lineup was achieved with Jon Harris joined by drummer Mike Jester and Vocalist Zoe Federoff. A debut album was released entitled "Asylum Denied" (2013) and a following across the globe arose in appreciation, praising the "ethereal" vocal work of Zoe and the masterful song writing of all musicians involved. In 2014 Jon Harris and Mike Jester resigned from Insatia for personal and scheduling reasons. Vocalist Zoe recruited drummer Seth Booze to continue the band and take it in new directions. Additional musicians Matt Hanna (LASTWATCH), Matt Federoff and Jeremy Gypton were added for live shows.
This lineup performed for the first time on October 1st, 2014, in Mesa AZ opening for SONATA ARCTICA, DELAIN, and XANDRIA. Legendary producer and bassist for SERENITY Fabio D'Amore then announced his position as producer on Insatia's upcoming sophomore album, Phoenix Aflame. Following this successful show, Jeff Swanson (GRAVITY LIES) and Ed Novotny were announced as INSATIA's permanent lead and rhythm guitarists. Roland Tyler was welcomed as permanent bassist, and finally Fabricio Montenegro completed the family on keys. The second album is well underway with an expected 2015 release.
The first song from the new album, "Act of Mercy," was debuted live on October 1st and the first single off the new album, "Sacred," will be released with an accompanying music video in early 2015.
