Dub Trio are really dipping into their metal and punk roots. They had Melvins' Buzz Osbourne contribute to a track, and their newest song/video has them teaming with Troy Sanders of Mastodon.
Sanders wrote the lyrics to the track "Fought the Line," and offered this quote about the track:
“'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's new album, The Shape Of Dub To Come is out April 26th.
