Dub Trio
Dub Trio
Over nearly two decades together, the Brooklyn triumvirate 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.
Among Criminals
Among Criminals
Among Criminals threads together 1990s alt-rock, modern indie rock, punk rock, and Jamaican dub, ska, and reggae. It’s an adventurous aesthetic that conjures the fearless musicality of the Mars Volta and At The Drive In, Nirvana, and Manchester Orchestra. The band’s recordings are visceral and dynamic, and also subtly layered for a multi-dimensional “headphones experience.” The trio originally formed in 2008, but burned out after a grueling schedule of 250-300 shows a year that tested its sanity, creativity, and commitment. The making of Kill The Precedent is something of an underdog Rock Balboa story dating back to 2014. At the time, Ryan worked over 60 hours a week slinging suds as a bartender, delivering pizza, driving for Uber, and even doing nude art modeling, among other sketchy ventures. He bounced back and forth between living in a van that kept getting broken into, and sleeping in a warehouse that necessitated he wear shoes and a winter coat each night to fend off the frigid temperature conditions. Any money made over basic bills, was used to fund Kill The Precedent —he had an unexplainable desire to finish the album.
