In an effort to fund and build anticipation for the band’s Die Mother Fucker Die worldwide tour, alt./metal act Dope has made available a pre-order for the band’s first ever live album. Recorded during the lineup’s performances in Russia in November, 2015 and featuring 21 tracks, the live album marks the first time the classic lineup of Edsel Dope, Acey Slade, Virus, and Racci Shay has performed onstage together in over 13 years. Along with the tour, the campaign also aims to produce Dope’s first ever live DVD, set to include backstage footage, unreleased music videos, and additional clips spanning the entirety of the band’s tenure.
In addition, Dope is currently at work on a new two-part studio album, Blood Money, with Edsel Dope promising the album’s release later in 2016. The teaser single, “Selfish” was released in August, 2014, marking the first recording of this lineup since 2001’s Life, Dope’s sophomore album
