Single and Video release of new single "Comfort"

The high-energy 6-strong Auckland-based ensemble that is dDub draw their musical influences from the heart of rock, roots, reggae and dub.

Their unique sound never fails to capture an audience's attention and they have become firm crowd favourites at many nationwide outdoor festivals, including Splore, Queenstown Winter Festival, Soundsplash and Rhythm & Vines.

The debut long player from dDub, Awake at Dawn, (released Feb this year and already onto it's 3rd pressing) is the culmination of 3 years work and has earned instant critical acclaim.

"Derek Browne [dDub frontman] is a master of sing along phrasing. The production shines, Matt Shanks bass boasts more monster than King Kong."
NZ Herald Feb 06  - * * * * 4 stars - Alan Perrott

"Every track is uplifting and infinitely listenable.  I thoroughly recommend waking up early on Monday and getting your copy.  A slice of heaven made in NZ."

Awake at Dawn is a fantastic representation of the current strength and vitality of Aotearoa's roots, rock and reggae culture. dDub are releasing a video for the single 'Comfort' which has an upbeat, skanking vibe, reflective of the present dDub sound. 
"A long awaited recording for their substantial fan base. Pumping out a raw roots Pacifica aural experience with bold brass and unapologetic passion."

dDub performed extensively over 2006 summer season, sharing stages with other high profile acts including Fat Freddy's Drop, Salmonella Dub, Cornerstone Roots, The Black Seeds, Katchafire, Rhombus and Kora.

For the Winter Tour they start with a 'Comfort' video release party at Galatos in Auckland and make their way down the country through Wellington, Napier and on to the Deep South to Queenstown, Invercargill, Dunedin and Christchurch.

"Polished and complete, the album brings together a range of influences, all performed with assured musicianship. dDub shows on this album it unequivocally holds its own, with some standout tracks sure to stamp its name firmly on the NZ dub circuit."
