    Black Dub, the acclaimed and innovative new quartet helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer and guitarist Daniel Lanois, today announced a full tour of North America. Kicking off in Anaheim on May 27th and concluding at the University of Illinois in Champaign on September 8th, the tour will deliver Black Dub's rich, vibrant sound to eager fans this summer.

    Black Dub is the inspiration of revered instrumentalist, recording artist and producer Daniel Lanois, well known for his work with an impressive roster of iconic artists that includes U2, Bob Dylan and Peter Gabriel. Formed in 2010, Black Dub's chemistry and energy promises thrilling live performances of material from its self-titled debut album.

    Known for an eclectic sound that blends rock and roll and blues into subtle, powerful songs, Black Dub matches the subtlety and prowess of Lanois' guitar playing with powerful, sultry vocal performances of multi-instrumentalist Trixie Whitley, daughter of the late great blues guitarist Chris Whitley. The rock and blues-influenced rhythm section, comprised of drummer Brian Blade and bassist Daryl Johnson, provides the perfect blend of depth and energy, blending Whitley's unmatched vocal style with Lanois' ability to craft innovative songs using his signature Jamaican dub technique.

    "We put a lot of energy into creating our debut release, and the music truly transforms when you hear it and see it performed live," said Lanois. "This summer, I can't wait to share this new music with more people in a live setting."
