Brand new full-length from Brooklyn dub/rock trio that worked with Matisyahu and Mike Patton. It came out on October 25th on ROIR label.
Dub, metal, and reggae. It’s an unlikely mix, but one the Brooklyn-based Dub Trio have made all their own over the years. Comprised of bassist Stu Brooks, guitarist DP Holmes, and drummer Joe Tomino, Dub Trio have provided the complex, yet solid, backbone of their phenomenal live support to touring musicians such as Mike Patton (with his Peeping Tom outfit) and Matisyahu, lent a helping hand in the studio to Yoko Ono and Mos Def, and all the while have found the time to record their own unique taste in rock.
Their latest (and aptly named fourth) studio album, IV, pushes rock and dub further into experimental territory. There’s more rock and metal on this album, which is where the band really excels, and the dub and delays that were more prolific before take a backseat.
