Dope Let Vulnerability Show With ‘Hold On’ Video
Dope have unveiled another new video from their upcoming album Blood Money Part 1, set to be released Oct.28. Check out the clip for "Hold On" above.
Frontman Edsel Dope says, "I think that it's fair to say that Dope is one of the more evolved bands from our genre & time period. Our new single, 'Hold On,' is a great example of this."
Dope continues, "It sounds like Dope, but it is clearly, very modern, and in no way reflects a band who is stuck in its past. The hooks are melodic and memorable, while the musicianship is on full display. I'm very proud of Dope's ability to walk that evolutionary line."
"This is by far, the most personal & vulnerable piece of art that I've ever released," the singer reveals. "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," Dope states. "I hope that the vulnerability and sincerity will resonate with people."
The band will embark on the "Die Mother F--ker Die" tour next month. The trek that reunites the classic lineup of Dope, Acey Slade, Virus and Racci Shay kicks off Sept. 13 in San Francisco.
