(PCM) We are overjoyed to learn that rockers DOPE are making a comeback and have recently launched a very special pre-order for their first-ever live album. The album is being offered as part of the band’s “Die Mother F**ker Die” Reunion Tour Campaign and features a 21 track set that was recorded live in Russia featuring the original DOPE line-up of Edsel Dope, Acey Slade, Virus, & Racci Shay.
The live album celebrates the first time that this “Old School” line up has performed on stage together in more than 13 years. The first goal of the campaign is to fuel a Dope U.S. Headline tour, featuring the classic “Old School” line up. The ultimate goal is to take the reunion tour around the entire globe throughout 2016.
“The United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, and Australia are all part of the plan” says Edsel Dope. “We are all stoked with the insane amount of enthusiasm from fans asking us to bring this line up around the world”….
In addition to the live album, the band plans to film the entire tour, with the intention of creating DOPE’S first ever “Live DVD”. The DVD will also include tons of classic backstage footage, unreleased music videos, as well as various, never before seen clips spanning the bands entire career. DOPE has put together some awesome, exclusive merch packages for the campaign, and everyone who participates will be recognized by having their name featured in the liner notes.
The live album will ship in June and is exclusively available at:
The album will not be available on iTunes or in retail stores.
In addition, the campaign features an in depth video interview with Edsel Dope, where he shares his personal feelings on the reunion tour, explains details of the Die MF Die campaign, and also gives an update on Dope’s upcoming 2 part – studio album, Blood Money, which he personally promises will be released later this year via E1 Entertainment.
