Disconnect was formed in December 2009 by longtime musical collaborators Erich O'Dell (guitars, bass, keyboards, vocals) andBrian Eschrich (drums, percussion). The duo had played together in various projects off and on for nearly 20 years beforedeciding it was time to write and record the type of progressive rock nearest to their sensibilities. Listeners will notice theirsound is heavily influenced by KING CRIMSON, PORCUPINE TREE, KEVIN GILBERT, SPOCK'S BEARD, THE MARS VOLTA, OCEANSIZEand PETER GABRIEL. Although in the Crossover Prog category, their music also contains elements of space rock and heavy prog.The band's name is duplicitous - it references the geographical disconnect between the duo (O'Dell records in his studio inMaryland while Eschrich records in his New Jersey studio) as well as the band's belief that modern life makes it difficult todisconnect from the overwhelming pervasiveness of technology.

Immediately after their formation, the band began to write and record songs for their debut album, eventually entitled RadioHostile (May 2010). Radio Hostile (given this name to represent the opposite of radio friendly) is a concept album consisting of15 tracks, 5 of which were instrumental. The album's theme tells the tale of an artist's attempts to achieve success in his craft,but only by the standards of others. Finally the persona realizes that success is not defined by monetary goals or perceivedpopularity, but rather by one's own satisfaction. « hide
