Formed from the ashes of several former Pittsburgh bands in January 2012, Insult To Injury originally went under the moniker of I, Creator. With numerous shows and heavy promotion, the metalcore outfit quickly rose up the ranks in their first ten months as a band. During that time, I, Creator attracted the interest of Voices & Vessels’ guitarist Cody Cavanaugh and Fort Charter Records. On November 23rd, 2012, the band announced that they would be changing their name to Insult To Injury, had added Cody Cavanaugh on guitars, signed with Fort Charter Records, and would be releasing their debut on January 15th, 2013.

The debut, entitled Dead Weight, featured pummeling breakdowns, technical guitar runs and leads, and mincing vocals. While Dead Weight was originally expected to be released on Fort Charter Records, the label was bought by JRS Solutions/One Day Savior Records and Insult To Injury was left to self-release the EP. Since the release, the band has seen a couple of member changes, but has kept the core of Geremy Andreaco (Vocals), Cody Cavanaugh (Guitar), Marc Liscio (Guitar), and Charlie Strauser (Bass). The band will be recording their follow-up release, entitled Burning The Family Tree, will be recorded in May before the band heads out for constant summer touring.
