Dub Trio Releases New Album ‘The Shape of Dub to Come’

Stu Brooks and Dub Trio have just unveiled their first album in eight years.

Today Dub Trio has released their new album, The Shape of Dub to Come via New Damage Records. Ahead of the release, Noisey MX debuted the album with an exclusive stream, stating, “(Dub Trio) are completely themselves, releasing their twisted sonic fantasies.”

Over nearly two decades together, Brooklyn’s Dub Trio — Stu Brooks [bass], DP Holmes [guitar], and Joe Tomino [drums]—not only delivered a string of albums that forever redefined the term “dub” under cover of metal, punk, alternative, and shoegaze, but also infused its musical prowess into the studio recordings and the shows of genre-bending icons ranging from Mike Patton to Lady Gaga. Dub Trio have performed as the backing band for Matisyahu as well as Peeping Tom.

The Shape of Dub to Come was announced with “World of Inconvenience [feat. King Buzzo]” at Rolling Stone, who called it, “Heavy, trippy… a crafty, atmospheric hybrid.”

“Fought The Line” featuring Troy Sanders followed and Consequence of Sound said, “The creepy, script-flipping video speaks to the song’s heavy lyrical theme.”

An homage to titles such as Refused’s The Shape of Punk to Come and Ornette Coleman’s The Shape of Jazz to Come, The Shape of Dub to Come’s groove hinges on slower stoner-inspired sludge riffing.

“We were a dub/reggae band, and we started implementing what we thought was cool from Refused and bands like that,” explains Brooks. “The Shape of Dub to Come describes our whole method; applying dub as a process to virtually any style of music. The future of dub doesn’t have to be just reggae. It’s a process rather than a genre.”
