Dope ink European deal with Steamhammer/SPV

Dope have signed with Steamhammer/SPV for the label to handle European distribution for the industrial metal band. Their new record, Blood Money, is currently scheduled for release next spring.

Label representative Georg Schröder said of the deal:

“We are proud to release the upcoming Dope album within Europe. Since their album Group Therapy, which was released in 2003, this band is one of my absolute faves when it comes to industrial metal! Therefore, it is a pleasure for us to bring the new album, Blood Money, to Europe.”

Frontman Edsel Dope commented as well, saying:

“Very excited to begin sharing new Dope music with our fans. Dope is returning with a vengeance after a five-year hiatus that concluded after touring alongside Black Label Society and Sevendust following the release of the bands fifth album, No Regrets. These are some of our most punishing works to date.”

The band also premiered the music video for the song “Selfish” this week which you can view below.
