The new EP from Hornsby, Sydney-based 3 piece Dis-Connect is called Social Disease and it’s out on Feb 8!
Recorded in May 2018 at The Grove Studios on the Central Coast, the EP features 4 brand new tracks that use their serrated punk/pop sound to accentuate the difficult issues that are examined in the lyrics. Social Disease offers a glimpse of some of the pressures facing middle and lower-class Australians, from the use of prescription and illegal drugs, troubled relationships and the struggle of a low income to cultural diversity, sexuality and political bias.
The EP will be launched at The Hornsby Inn, Sydney on Saturday 30th March.
Dis-Connect are Phillip Lambert (lead vocals, bass guitar) Steven Tonge (back vocals, guitar) and Grahame Giles (drums). The band was formed after Phil recorded 7 songs in his bedroom and gave the songs and his drum kit to Grahame and from that point it was 6 weeks until the band’s very first gig.
After a few years of playing live gigs, Steve joined the band and they recorded a demo at Damien Gerard Studios with Russell Pilling. A lot of live gigs followed, as well as the release of their debut EP, featuring the track Harmony, which gained national radio airplay on Triple J.
Social Disease will be live on Spotify, iTunes and all your favourite streaming services on Feb 8

“I’ve been passionate about making original music for years and this EP marks the start of a new journey for me. The songs tell the story of some of the most profound experiences I’ve had over the past few years. I have come from humble beginnings and have worked really hard at finding my own sound both as a saxophonist and producer. I’ve been able to create a really dynamic sound with both soaring highs and subtle, tender moments. I can’t wait to share my music with the world,” -Joel Sena
