DOPE Guitarist Quits To Join MURDERDOLLS

Guitarist Acey Slade is strongly rumored to have left DOPE in order to officially replace Tripp Eisen (STATIC-X) in MURDERDOLLS.

Despite the fact that Eisen's official statement announcing his non-participation in the MURDERDOLLS' current US tour gave no indication that he was permanently leaving the band, Slade allegedly told several people attending MURDERDOLLS' performance at Slim's in San Francisco last night that he had quit DOPE in order to officially join the Joey Jordison-led combo.

No further information on the matter is presently available.

MURDERDOLLS' debut album, entitled Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls, is due on August 20th through Roadrunner Records.
