Canadian alt-metallers Slaves on Dope are going full throttle in 2013 with a healthy touring schedule and a new EP on the way. Featuring revved-up versions of songs by Faith No More, Genesis, Marvin Gaye, Loverboy and fellow Cannucks, AOR one-hit-wonders Sheriff, the Covers EP Vol. 1 will arrive in stores on April 23.
