DOPE has posted three songs from the band's long-awaited fifth album, "No Regrets", on the group's MySpace page. Check out the tracks "Addiction", "No Regrets" and "Die Boom Bang Burn Fuck" at this location.
Zakk Wylde (OZZY OSBOURNE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) lent his signature guitar squeals to DOPE on the new track "Addiction".
DOPE has tapped directors Kevin Custer (KINGDOM OF SORROW, TESTAMENT) and Dale "Rage" Resteghini (TRIVIUM, HATEBREED) to helm the videos for the songs "Addiction" and "66Sick". The clips were filmed in New Jersey on January 8-10. Prior to the video shoot, the band put out a call for a "bad-ass chopper" and a large boa constrictor or a python to feature in one of the videos.
Vocalist and guitarist Edsel Dope, alongside Virus, has revitalized DOPE's lineup on "No Regrets". Joining them on bass and backing vocals is Tripp Tribbet, formerly frontman of TWISTED METHOD, who also happens to be the younger brother of MUDVAYNE/HELLYEAH guitarist Greg Tribbet. On drums, DOPE recruited former GENITORTURERS drummer Angel Bartolotta.
DOPE will be on tour with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and SEVENDUST all spring long.
DOPE has released four albums since signing with Epic in 1998, and has sold over 500,000 CDs. Their most recent CD, 2005's "American Apathy", debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart as well as #1 on the Billboard Independent Album chart.
