PROBLEM WITH DRAGONS – Winter 2020 U.S. Tour Starts February 1st – Touting Latest Album ‘ASCENDANT’.

Rooted from Easthampton, Massachusetts in 2007, Problem With Dragons execute heavily fuzzed-out, unrestricted music. A meaty stew compiled of equal parts Stoner Metal, Sludge, Punk, Doom, Grunge, and Heavy Metal, with a heavy dash of Prog Rock.

Their debut EP release ‘Atomics‘ arrived in 2012, followed by the 2015 full-length ‘Starquake‘, and with the recent sophomore album ‘Ascendant‘ released in 2019, the band creates discordant noises, turbulent riffs, and oscillating rhythms. It really shouldn’t work at all… yet it forgoes confusion and entwines to a uniquely rich, atmospheric tapestry, as Problem With Dragons enforce a sound full of conviction and style.

In support of their ‘Ascendant‘ album, Problem With Dragons is heading out on a month-long U.S. tour. Starting in their Western Mass. hometown on Saturday, February 1st, the band then departs for a 20 day run across the country and finishes up February 23rd in Nashville, Tennessee. Hitting dates with the likes of Astral Cult, Burn Thee Insects, and mighty sludge mongers -16-, it’s bound to be a wretched sonic free-for-all! All dates and details available here:

“Problem With Dragons’ third release is a sludgy, doomed behemoth of an album, wielding crushing weight and dynamic vocal performances to fell foul beasts and puny eardrums alike.” ~ Stoner Hive


“This band certainly have a style of their own and are pretty hard to pigeonhole, it’s genre-bending and only the open-minded need apply. Heavy, quirky and most importantly, very listenable. Crank it up!!” ~ Down The Front Media


“The thick layer of sludge that emerges from this album paves a path to your very own personal ride to space.” ~ Valley Advocate
