GO! New Music – DOPE Blood Money




MUSIC VIDEOS FOR BLOOD MONEYAND HOLD ON OUT NOWTOUR DATES IN TORONTO, OTTAWA AND MONTREALToronto, 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.Blood Money Part 1 Track List1) Intro: Confessions of a Felon2) Blood Money3) Shoulda Known Better4) Lexipro5) Hold On6) 19997) Razorblade Butterfly8) Drug Music9) A New Low10) Hypocrite11) X-Hale12) End of the World13) Selfish14) Numb15) VioletFULL DOPE TOUR DATES:09/23 – St Louis, MO @ Firebird09/24 – Minneapolis, MN @ The Cabooze09/25 – Des Moines, IA @ Lefty’s09/26 – Sioux Falls, SD @ Big’s Bar09/27 – Waterloo, IA @ The Reverb09/28 – Stevens Point, WI @ Live On Main09/29 – Chippewa Falls, WI @ Every Buddy’s09/30 – Battle Creek, MI @ Music Factory10/01 – Flint, MI @ Machine Shop10/02 – Madison, WI @ Sonic Boom10/03 – Toledo, OH @ Realm10/04 – Chicago, IL @ Concord Music Hall10/05 – Cleveland, OH @ The Agora10/06 – Columbus, OH @ Park Street Saloon10/07 – Lancaster, PA @ Chameleon Club10/08 – Stroudsburg, PA @ Sherman Theater10/09 – Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall10/10 – Toronto, ON @ Hard Luck10/11 – Ottawa, ON @ Mavericks10/12 – Montreal, QC @ Pirahna Bar10/13 – Amityville, NY @ Revolution10/14 – Worcester, MA @ Rock N Shock @ Palladium10/15 – Baltimore, MD @ Fish Head Cantina10/16 – Fayetteville, NC @ The Rock Shop10/17 – Atlanta, GA @ Heaven – Masquerade10/18 – Lake Charles, LA @ The Centerstage10/19 – Austin, TX @ Dirty Dog Bar10/20 – Houston, TX @ Scout Bar10/21 – Dallas, TX @ Trees10/22 – Merriam, KS @ Aftershock10/23 – Oklahoma City, OK @ 89th St. Collective10/24 – Lubbock, TX @ Backstage10/25 – Gallup, NM @ The Juggernaut10/26 – Phoenix, AZ @ Joe’s Grotto10/27 – San Diego, CA @ Brick By Brick10/28 – Las Vegas, NV @ Counts Vamp’d10/29 – Anaheim, CA @ City National Grove of Anaheim10/30 – W.
