Dub Trio’s Stu Brooks Welcomes Justin Pearson (The Locust, Dead Cross, Etc.) On New Song “Laughing Stock”


Dub Trio‘s Stu Brooks has launched another single from his debut solo album, “40HZ“. Justin Pearson (The Locust, Dead Cross, etc.) lends his vocal talents to this track, which carries the title of “Laughing Stock“. Qui guitarist/vocalist Matt Cronk also took part. A September 22nd release date is being planned for that outing through Dine Alone Records.

Brooks said of working with Pearson on this new song:

“I first heard of Justin when Mike Patton introduced me to his band The Locust back while we were on the road with Peeping Tom. I have been inspired and influenced by his work for about 15 years now.

I only wish I could have found him sooner! He is a punk noise legend for decades and dedicated his life to his art, numerous bands and his record label Three One G which has a sick roster of punk and experimental music. I’m honoured that he was down to write this song with me and Matt Cronk (Qui).”

Pearson added:

“It’s an honor to work on material with Stu. It was only a matter of time till our orbits synced or collided, depending on how you look at it. And the fact that Matt Cronk is involved makes even more sense to me.

Needless to say, Stu is an artist who, like me, is fully capable of meshing in certain realms, but also willing to go berserk and do whatever he wants, for the sake of art… or whatever you want to call it. Stu clearly is cut from similar cloth as me, so it is very comfortable collaborating on things with him. He rules.”
