Retrosphere began as a metal trio in the summer of 2016. After the release of the Wildflowers EP and departure of the drummer, founding guitarists Byron Hernandez and Seamus McDaniel decided to continue under the name Retrosphere and completely change styles of music. Now, Retrosphere is a instrumental progressive band that seeks to create technical and challenging music while keeping catchy hooks and choruses. The release of their single "Viridian" marked the beginning of a new era for Retrosphere.


Retrosphere has played live shows in Richmond, Winchester, and Fredericksburg, Virginia at venues such as Capital Ale House, the Canal Club, Evolving Art Machine, and more. The band has headlined shows as well as been an opening act for Jason Richardson and other local bands.
