dub trio IV (CD, £11.50)label: roir
“Dub Trio plays spacious reggae grooves spiked with high-adrenaline punk rock.” - NEW YORK TIMES “Dub Trio has taken our soft spot for dub and ripped it to shreds with their potent blend of blistering heavy rock and dub conventions.” - XLR8R Dub Trio is back with their fourth and most powerful album to date - IV - an overwhelming blend of sounds, styles and ideas that come out swinging, and hit harder than ever. Can metal coexist with dub’s bass eavy riddims? Dub Trio’s newest album proves that not only can such incongruities coexist, but that in the right hands they flourish! After touring extensively over the years as a headlining act, with the release of their New Heavy album in 2006 Dub Trio became the go-to live musicians for both Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, peeping Tom), and Hasidic reggae rap sensation Matisyahu. Acting as band members in Patton’s Peeping Tom as well as working full time as Matisyahu’s touring band, Dub Trio have opened for The Who at Madison Square Garden, and performed with Matisyahu at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Dub Trio has worked closely with Lady Gaga as her original showcasing band, as well as with 50 Cent and G-Unit, Mary J. Blige, Tupac, Yoko Ono, The Fugees, Lauryn Hill, Tom Morello, Mos Def, Mobb Deep, and many more.
