In February, 2009, the Reverend Eepie Acob found his way to Milwaukee, WI with nothing more than a guitar and the clothes on his back. He had been forcibly removed from his home church in Northern Wisconsin due to what can only be described as 'indiscretions.' Having always been a hard-drinking man, the Reverend passed out in an alleyway a mere hours after his arrival in the city. Two passersby and fellow drunks happened upon his body... face down in a pool of his own blood and piss. The drunks took him in and upon waking, the Reverend played them his life's story on his guitar. The Reverend said he wanted to start up a church in Milwaukee to pick up where he had left off and to again spread his gospel. Without a dime to his name, the prospect seemed impossible, but the drunks suggested they start a roving church. The three of them would travel the countryside to promote their word and their religion. Thus, The Church of Abject Sorrow was born.
