Formerly xdisciplex or disciple, the band had to change its name to avoid legal actions due to a prior established band named Disciple.[3] They released albums with Goodfellow Records, Triple Crown Records and Facedown Records. The band often played in Ontario, Canada, due to its connections with the Buffalo/Hamilton hardcore scene and Goodfellow Records/Redstar Records.[4]

After they disbanded, Dan Quiggle, Dave Quiggle, and Adam Salaga started another band called Jesus Wept,[5] while Neil Hartman joined No Innocent Victim.[6] Dave Quiggle moved to California during the summer of 2005 and also joined No Innocent Victim and works for Facedown Records doing design.[7]

Members of xDISCIPLEx A.D. also played in the bands Anchor, Dodgin' Bullets and Shockwave.
