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.”

Dope Releases ‘Blood Money’ Music Video

This fall Dope will return with its new album Blood Money Pt. 1.  In anticipation of the album’s release the band has unveiled the video for the album’s lead single.

The band teamed with hard rock outlet Loudwire to debut the song’s new video this week.  The video is just as intense visually as it is musically and lyrically.  So viewer discretion is advised.  It features footage of the band performing its new song along with footage of front man Edsel Dope being strapped to a chair, being forced to take in images of sex, drugs, and other associated topics.  It can be viewed online now here.

Along with its new video, the band also recently announced that it will tour in support of its new album this fall on what has been dubbed the Die Mother F**** Die Tour.”  The six-week tour, which is being presented by Revolver magazine, is currently scheduled to run through Sunday, October 30th in West Hollywood, California.  Flaw and Motograter will share time on stage as support for Dope throughout the course of the tour.  The band’s complete tour schedule is noted below.

Born Of Osiris, For The Fallen Dreams Added To 2016 Dirt Fest Lineup

More names have been added to this year’s edition of the Dirt Fest.

Organizers with the annual festival announced this week that Born of Osiris and For The Fallen Dreams have both been added to this year’s lineup.  They join the likes of: Sea of Treachery, I Set My Friends on Fire, and The Alpha Complex, who were also just recently added to the festival’s lineup.  The Alpha Complex features former Motograte

r front man Michael Woodruff on vocals.  Matt Dalton is one of the festival’s promoters.  He discussed the addition of Born of Osiris and For The Fallen Dreams in a recent interview.  “I’m thrilled to have my friends in Born of Osiris and For The Fallen Dreams join our event,” he said.  This will bee the first time FTFD has played in their home state of Michigan in over two years and their first time back to Dirt Fest since 2006.  With Chad (Ruhlig) back fronting the band the timing couldn’t be better.”

This is not the first time that the annual festival, which is held every year in Michigan, has given bands from “The Great Lakes State” time in the limelight.  In 2012 Chiodos reunited after having taken some time apart previously.  And the band’s first show back was at Dirt Fest.  The performance featured original front man Craig Owens back at the helm.  Dirt Fest has also developed quite the reputation for itself for having launched the careers of other major metal acts such as: Battlecross, Wilson, and See You Next Tuesday.  Dalton discussed the festival’s reputation along with the new additions to this year’s festival in his interview.  “Our priority has always been Michigan bands and this year is no exception,” he said of the festival’s reputation.  “In addition to Walls of Jericho, Wilson, Saint Riley, and of course For The Fallen Dreams, dozens of up-and-coming Michigan bands like It Lies Within and Heartsick will have a chance to perform alongside the big guys.  You never know who the next break out artist will be.”

2016 marks the 19th year for the Dirt Fest.  Along with the bands already noted, this year’s festival lineup also features some of the biggest names in the metal community today including: Hatebreed, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Soil, Asking Alexandria, Attila, Bury Your Dead, and many others.  It will be held at the Crofoot Festival Grounds in downtown Pontiac Michigan on Saturday, August 13th.  Tickets for the festival can be purchased online now here.  More information on Dirt Fest is available online now at:
