|Genres||Progressive rock, psychedelic soul, jazz fusion, heavy metal, space rock|
|Past members||Fred Carneiro
2008–10: Mechanical Overload
Multi-instrumentalists Kyle Brower and Matt Penco, along with bassist Fred Carneiro and lead vocalist Bruce Jackson, formed Mechanical Overload in 2008. They began composing and recording original material for what eventually became part of The Reformation's first album, but the project went defunct with Jackson's departure in early 2010.
2010–present: The Reformation
The addition of actress Caroline Schneider in September 2010 prompted the reformation of the old group, and a new direction. They changed their name to The Reformation, and completed recording their debut album in the summer of 2011. Carneiro left the group before the album's release and was replaced with multi-instrumentalist Dan Miller.
The band released their debut album, The Reformation, on August 18, 2011, performing shows at bars and clubs in Pittsburgh to promote it. They released their second album, Fatal Expectation, on July 27, 2013. Both albums were produced and engineered by Penco.
