Stu Releases New Single “Laughing Stock” (feat. Justin Pearson)

STU BROOKS has released a new single from his upcoming full-length album – fans can hear the prolific bassist’s latest track, “Laughing Stock”, which features guest vocals from hardcore punk icon Justin Pearson (The Locust, Dead Cross, Deaf Club). “Laughing Stock” is the most recent offering in an ongoing series of singles dating back to last year that will make up Stu’s debut studio LP, ‘40HZ’, which is due out September 22 on Dine Alone Records. Previous singles include “They’ll Just Love You” (feat. Poppy + Danny Elfman) and “Sound The Alarm” (feat. Patrick Stump). Commenting on the experience of working with Pearson on the new track, Brooks shares:

“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 (C*nts, Qui).”

Speaking on the collaboration with Stu Brooks, Justin Pearson adds:

“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.”
