Dope Unveils ‘Hold On’ Video

Dope has unveiled its latest music video.

The veteran hard rock oufit released the video for the song ‘Hold On’ today. The song is the official lead single from the band’s upcoming album Blood Money Part 1.  The album will be released Friday, October 28th via Entertainment One.  It can be pre-ordered online now here.

Front man Edsel Dope said of the song and its companion video, which was co-directed by [Edsel] Dope that the two are unlike anything that he has ever crafted.  “This is by far the most personal and vulnerable piece of art that I’ve ever released,” he said.  “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.”
