Biography

New York City (1997 – present)

Dope is a band that was founded in 1997 and immediately exploded onto the New York City club scene. After only a handful of shows, Dope secured a major label deal with Epic / Flip Records in 1998. The band’s self-produced debut, ‘Felons and Revolutionaries’, was released in 1999, and nonstop touring fueled the band’s success. Dope did several national tours with acts like Slipknot, Sevendust, Mudvayne, Fear Factory, Staind, Static-X, and Kid Rock earning Dope a reputation for being one of the most exciting live bands of the new millennium. Dope’s non-stop touring and impressive live performances helped their debut release to SoundScan more than 250,000 units, creating the foundation that they would continue to build on in the years to come.

The track “Debonaire” is notable for being used in the 2001 film The Fast & The Furious.

Successful headlining tours and Dope’s second album “Life” followed in 2001. The band’s sound matured and the record was received with excellent reviews by both the media and fans alike. Unfortunately, the band’s two labels were not functioning well together anymore. The label support and focus was non-existent for Dope at this very crucial time and there was very little awareness surrounding the album’s release.

Instead of becoming bitter and fading into oblivion, Dope decided to take matters into their own hands. After confirming the band’s release from both of their original record deals, Dope quickly returned to the studio and created its third album “Group Therapy”; a collection of 13 new songs which included a full-length music video for every song on the album.

    What originally turned me on to these guys was "Debonaire" when I heard it on "The Fast and The Furious". They stuck with me and I listened to their other material and liked it. "American Apathy" followed their same style. Groovy, grungy, emotional, aggressive, even somewhat poppy, unique musical style. No regrets implicates their old style and brings about a whole new melodic and somehwat progressive element that really shows off their musical talent. My point is, its really cool to see these guys growing and expanding as I am being a teenager. I look forward to seeing what else they have in store. Dope has some of the most aggresive, head-banging stuff out there. But one of the best songs on the album, "Always"

    I heard "Selfish" for the first time today. And yeah. That track definitely fits their style, and would fit on any of their old albums (excluding maybe "Felons and Revolutionaries," but only because it's too polished for that album). Looking forward to Blood Money.

    It's not crappy, it's just not groundbreaking. Still, fine old shit. Let's hope there are better ones on the actual album.
