History & BiographyThe band was founded in 1986. While the hard rock of the San Francisco band made some impact, following the disappointment of the second the band threw in the towel. Reid was replaced by little Eric Pacheo as Reid was not into touring any longer. The band had released a live EP entitled Live At The Roxy between albums and appeared on the Robocop 2 soundtrack. Apocalypse is the band’s imprint label. The 'A.D.' suffix was unsurprisingly added due to a conflict with another Babylon.
Perris Records issued a disc by the group called In The Beginning in 2006. The album featured the band’s early 12-song demo. San Francisco’s Babylon A.D. reformed with the original members in early 2010 and was in pre-production for its sixth studio release. 2010 would also bring a promised new version of the song Bang Go The Bells.
