All Broken is the second release from EPIC PROBLEM who formed mid 2010, but didn’t really get going until
their first gig supporting THE BUSINESS on December 3rd, 2011. Not a bad beginning for this new band of both
young up-and-comers and well-seasoned veterans including Mackie, who had played bass for the iconic UK punk
band BLITZ, and Jake of DANGERFIELDS and DEAD SUBVERTS.
The formation of EPIC PROBLEM began when Mackie had written a few songs on guitar and got Jake to sing on
them. Drummer Greg Boulton and bass player Tony Morrisson quickly joined up, and the band began writing and
gigging extensively throughout 2012, playing with legendary UK punk bands ARGY BARGY, SUBHUMANS, and THE
BUSINESS, as well as American bands on tour in the UK like DEAD TO ME, NOTHINGTON, and THE BLACKLIST ROYALS.
With a sound that is equal parts classic UK punk rock a la LEATHERFACE infused with the melodic “Gainesville”
sound of bands like HOT WATER MUSIC or DILLINGER FOUR, this is a band that is garnering a lot of attention across
multiple genres & scenes quickly! This release is no doubt a prime example of why.
