MUSIC VIDEOS FOR BLOOD MONEY
AND HOLD ON OUT NOW
TOUR DATES IN TORONTO, OTTAWA AND MONTREAL

Toronto, ON – September 23, 2016 – Dope will release their long anticipated Blood Money Part 1 LP on October 28th via Entertainment One. The group has shared the music videos for Blood Money, and the album’s first official single, Hold On. The video was co-directed by Edsel Dope and his old friend, and acclaimed video director, Dale Range Resteghini. Blood Money Part 1, along with a plethora of bundle packages, meet and greets, and exclusive new merch designs, is available to pre-order at www.DopeTheBand.com.

“This is by far, the most personal & vulnerable piece of art that I’ve ever released,” says Edsel. “Unlike some of Dope’s more theatrically driven works, “Hold On” is totally uninhibited, it is a reflection of my own personal story, told through a singular piece of art. Truthfully, this was a very difficult piece for me to complete at times; but, in the end, it has also been a very healing experience. I hope that the vulnerability and sincerity will resonate with people.”

Edsel continues, “I think that it’s fair to say that Dope is one of the more evolved bands from our genre & time period. Our new single, Hold On, is a great example of this. It sounds like Dope, but it is clearly, very modern, and in no way reflects a band who is stuck in its past. The hooks are melodic and memorable, while the musicianship is on full display. I’m very proud of Dope’s ability to walk that evolutionary line.”

Dope recently announced the dates of their Revolver Magazine-sponsored, Die Mother Fucker Die Reunion Tour, featuring support from the bands Flaw and Motograter. The Dope reunion tour will feature the classic line up of Edsel Dope, Acey Slade, Virus, and Racci Shay, and includes Canadian stops in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.
