Black Dub Releases Debut Album, Announces Tour Dates

Black DubProducer/guitarist Daniel Lanois’ band Black Dub has released its debut self-titled album. The 11-track outing features the slick grooves of bassist Daryl Johnson, who seamlessly follows the band as they subtly mix rock, funk, soul, and reggae styles into their own unique sound. The group’s quartet setting allows Johnson to really stretch out with some tasty fills without losing their foundation. Black Dub also showcases drum virtuoso Brian Blade and vocalist Trixie Whitley.

Black Dub will be trekking the East coast on an 8-city tour during November in support of the CD, beginning in Boston, Massachusetts and then ending up in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

  • November 15, 2010 – Boston, MA – Paradise Rock Club
  • November 17, 2010 – New York, NY – Bowery Ballroom
  • November 18, 2010 – Philadelphia, PA – Johnny Brenda’s
  • November 19, 2010 – Vienna, VA – Jammin’ Java
