Colossal formed in late 2001 and began playing shows in spring of 2002. Asian Man Records released their debut, a self-titled, six-song EP, in January of 2003. The band’s genre-crossing ways were already evident on the EP, as the songs fuse elements of punk, jazz, post-rock, and pop with a focused singularity. The sound is intricate and dense but never difficult or overwrought. The EP received universal critical acclaim and attendance at shows steadily increased in and around Chicago. Their first tour came that summer.

The following months were spent writing what would become their first full-length. In early 2004, bass player Jeff Feucht left the band to dedicate more time to his teaching career. He was replaced by Eli Caterer, who finished writing and recording the new album. Welcome the Problems, the debut full-length, was released on Asian Man in September 2004 on the heels of a western U.S. tour. « hide
