Bassist Stu Brooks, guitarist DP Holmes, and drummer Joe Tomino are Dub Trio — a punk/metal band that infuse dub music… or maybe it’s the other way around. Either way, it’s a truly unique sound that they’ve been creating since 2000.
Blending rock, punk, heavy metal, and electronic music, the three members use various delay pedals, keyboards, and samplers to create a live show that will leave your head in the clouds and your jaw on the floor.
Each member is an excellent musician, all having been enlisted in other high profile projects over the years. Brooks has recorded with Matisyahu, Tupac, Macy Gray, and 50 Cent, among others. Holmes played on records by Mos Def and Common. Tomino used to tour with The Fugees.
Originally formed in Brooklyn, New York, the band has put out five albums: Exploring the Dangers Of (2004), New Heavy (2006), Another Sound Is Dying (2008), IV (2011), and most recently, The Shape of Dub to Come (2019).
Rolling Stone called the newest album “Heavy, trippy… a crafty, atmospheric hybrid.” Revolver said it’s “A truly harrowing and intriguing ride.”
It’s been a great year for Dub Trio. Following the release of the new album, they took off on tour with alt rock giant, Incubus. Both bands will be performing in Montana for the first time in a long time, on September 18th, outside along the Blackfoot River at KettleHouse Amphitheater. For many fans, it’s been the concert they’ve been looking forward to all summer.
