Started in December of 2008 as a few middle school friends looking to play some cover songs, Problem Child has grown to be one of Vermont’s most praised punk/rock groups, taking the stage alongside well-known acts such as Strike Anywhere, Joyce Manor, Guttermouth, Living With Lions, and Such Gold. Coming from a large range of influences, Problem Child has defined their own sound that stands out amongst the genre of modern day punk and hardcore. “Problem Child represent all that is good about punk rock. From guitarist and front man Evan Engisch’s Billie Joe Armstrong-esque lazy sneer to Kevin Wilkinson’s romping bass and Matt Decker’s punishing drum work, the band divines the ragged essence of punk attitude.” says Dan Bolles of Seven Days VT. Commonly heard comparisons include Paint It Black, Pennywise, Dag Nasty, and the Descendents.
In 2009, Problem Child recorded their first demo consisting of 3 tracks and a bonus cover. After passing the demo around and becoming regulars on the stage of 242 Main in Burlington, Vermont, Problem Child went back in the studio to lay down their first full length, released in March, 2012 and entitled Restless When Idle.
Problem Child’s music focuses on two topics; the first being unity and human compassion through human individuality, and the second being the perils of high school. With a track list virtually overflowing with new material, Problem Child will once again be entering through the doors of Ad Astra recording in Williston, Vermont to record their second full-length release in late February and are set to take off on their first US tour over the summer of 2013.
