No Problem (CAN)
What comes to mind when you think about Canada’s most northern metropolis Edmonton Alberta? Oil. Blue collar people. Isolation. Long winters. Trucks with metallic testicles. Fanatical hockey fans. Well why not add international touring hardcore punk veterans No Problem to the list. Formed in 2010, with lyrical content depicting a sense of impending doom set to the feedback laden chaotic, frenzy of catchy 80’s style punk, No Problem crawled out of winter’s endless darkness to make a name for themselves in the international DIY punk community. Comprised of four avid music collectors with a wide array of influences and taste No Problem is raw and highly energetic with a style firmly embedded in the historic roots. An international act with five European and three North American tours under their belts. A plethora of records released (two LPs, four 7”/45RPM EPs) on several different independent record labels (Deranged Records in North America, Taken By Surprise in Europe) these veterans bring a mutant approach to songwriting setting them apart from their hardcore peers. Attacking the crowd with catchy choruses, and dark brooding riffs, a No Problem performance will hypnotically pull every member out of the audience and into a war-dance like atmosphere. Taking a bit of a hiatus in 2017, No Problem are back with a new album Let God Sort’em Out scheduled for release on June 25th 2018 on Deranged Records and Taken By Surprise (Europe). With their most complex material to date, No Problem have created the perfect soundtrack to a world careening into madness. We’re standing on the precipice of a world circling the drain, let’s pray God sorts us out.
