Bassist Stu Brooks, guitarist DP Holmes and drummer Joe Tomino have redefined the term “dub” under cover of metal, punk, alternative, and shoegaze. Specializing in almost exclusively instrumental material, the three-piece play not only their respective instruments, but operate some serious effects rigs, and double on keyboards and melodica too. 

Dub Trio introduced itself fifteen years ago on 2004’s “live-dub experiment” Exploring the Dangers Of followed by successors New Heavy (2006), Another Sound Is Dying (2008), and IV (2011). The Brooklyn-based triumvirate served as Peeping Tom’s live band and toured alongside heavy hitters Clutch, Gogol Bordello and Dillinger Escape Plan. All three members are seasoned session players, having recorded with a plethora of hip-hop artists across the board, including Mos Def, Common, the Fugees, Tupac, G-Unit, Mobb Deep, and Macy Gray. The multi-instrumentalist trio have infused musical prowess into the studio recordings and the shows of genre-bending icons ranging from Mike Patton to Lady Gaga.

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