Dub Trio Premiere New Video For “Fought The Line” Feat. Mastodon’s Troy Sanders

Dub Trio have premiered a new video for their new song “Fought The Line.” This track features Mastodon’s Troy Sanders and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Shape Of Dub To Come” (out April 26).

Sanders told Heavy Consequence the following:

“‘Fought The Line‘ references struggle. It comes from a poem that I wrote inspired by a conversation I had with cancer itself. I stared at a face of beautiful, soft skin and assured this face, ‘I will take care of you.’

We’re fighting one battle together. I’m right there, if things fall into my hands. The verses were therapy venting my anger. When people are fighting for their lives, it’s very easy to go off the line. If death is reeling you in, then you have to fight and do anything in your power to overcome it. I just wanted to be there to support.”

Dub Trio Premiere New Video For “World Of Inconvenience” Feat. Buzz Osborne (Melvins)

Dub Trio have premiered a new video for their new song “World Of Inconvenience.” This track features Buzz Osborne (Melvins) and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Shape Of Dub To Come” (out April 26). That effort will also feature Mastodon’s Troy Sanders on a song called “Fought The Line” and Meshell Ndegeocello on a song called. “Forget My Name.“

Bassist Stu Brooks said the following about collaborating with Osborne:

“We are an instrumental band. We’ve only ever had one guest on our albums, Mike Patton. ‘World Of Inconvenience‘ was going to live on the album as an instrumental but the sludge metal riff was screaming for Buzz. So as a last minute add, we reached out to him. He took the instrumental to his studio in L.A. and we gave him total creative freedom. The lyrics are like a puzzle or a code that can’t be cracked in just one listen.”

He also discussed the new album title:

“We were a dub/reggae band, and we started implementing what we thought was cool from Refused and bands like that. ‘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.”
