PROBLEM WITH DRAGONS – Winter 2020 U.S. Tour Starts Feb. 1st

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.

NOFX’s Fat Mike Announces Inaugural Camp Punk In Drublic

Fat Mike of NOFX’  has announced the first-ever Camp Punk In Drublic. The event will take place on June 1-3 at Legend Valley in Thornville, OH, and it will feature music, craft beer tastings, campfire stories from punk legends, attractions such as Fatty’s Midnite Matinee late night movie theater, carnival games, etc. Here’s the daily lineups:

June 1 (Kickoff Party): Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, and Guttermouth. (followed by Campfire Stories with Fat Mike and NOFX).

June 2: NOFX, Pennywise, Goldfinger, Strung Out, Mad Caddies, Face To Face and Bad Cop / Bad Cop (followed by Campfire Stories with Keith Morris, Jello Biafra and friends).

Sunday, June 3: Rancid, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Sick Of It All, Lagwagon, The Bouncing Souls, Street Dogs, and The Interrupters.

NOFX’s Fat Mike had the following to say:

“The thing about camping is that really nothing can go wrong, because everything is already wrong. Punk rockers don’t really know how to camp. They know how to wear hoodies, drink, and lean on each other. The good thing is that we got a lot of generators and an unlimited supply of kegs (some are even full of beer). Hey Coachella and Bonnaroo and Burning Man …Watch what happens at CAMP Punk In Drublic. I can almost guarantee that our festival is gonna be way lamer and stupider than yours…That’s the point!…Well, I think that’s the point. Wait, punk rock doesn’t have a point?”

Rancid’s Tim Armstrong also commented:

“Fat Mike gathered up some of my favorite bands and people to hang out in the middle of Ohio. Rancid can’t wait to be a part of the first Camp Punk In Drublic. We’re looking forward to telling stories around the campfire with you guys!”

Pennywise’s Fletcher Dragge continued:

“Wait, I get to run amok with a bunch of drunk punk rockers into the wee hours of the night? Have you ever seen a 300 lb man do a belly flop on a pup tent? Well you will…game on! People who are insane enough to stay through the night better get their troops together…me and Fatty are coming for you!!”
