Western Massachusetts problems. My brakes are shot and every light is red. I need to cash a check and all the banks are closed. The cops are tailgating me, my ex keeps calling, am I losing my mind? What is my problem? Should I crush a 12 pack and curl up sobbing in a dark corner? No, there has to be a better answer. The solution that presents itself is a paradox, as I’m going to solve my problem…with a problem. Problem With Dragons! Three local rockers whose sludge filled, sci-fi, metal are here to drive all your problems away. Robert Ives (guitar), Eric Cunha (drums), and Joe Magrone (bass) form the terror trio who deliver the rock and roll groceries to assauge your metal hunger. Their recently released STARQUAKE cd, available on iTunes, serves up the stoner rock riffs that’ll drive you into the stratosphere. These guys bring it, and you’ve got to see them live at this year’s RPM Fest in Greenfield, Mass on August 26th. You can also catch them up and down the east coast (road trip!) from The Local in Rutland, VT on June 30th to Cherry Street Station in Wallingford, CT on July 2nd. Problem With Dragons: here to crank up the rock, and send your problems packin’!

“At some point, all the dolts up on the Mars colonies are going to want/need a house band.” – Decibel Magazine (Feb 2016)

“…boast heavier-than-tectonic-plate-shifting guitar riffs, but there’s also a heaping helping of melodic vocals.” – Vegas Seven (Feb 16, 2012)

“Parts Stoner, Sludge, Punk, Hard Rock, Doom, Grunge Classic Rock, Heavy Metal and Prog Rock. This is a band who knows how to defy musical genres and give it the middle thing it richly deserves.” – The Sludgelord (Mar 25, 2015)

“…expressing the time-tested themes of heavy metal through the latest aesthetic rather than mindlessly trend hopping.” – San Jose Metro (Mar 20, 2015)

“…these guys deliver fuzz-laden anthems in manageable 3-4 minute chunks.” – Jessie May, AlternativeControl.com (Feb 8, 2015)

“A classic tone mixture of heavy rock. This power trio nails the earth to the back of a spaceship and sends it straight towards the sun.” – Michael Nashawaty, WEMF Radio (Jan 11, 2015)
