Dope to Release "Blood Money" in 2014

Are you Dope-sick? You won't be any longer, as Chicago industrial metal outfit Dope are back with a dose of aggro metal. They have released a video teaser showcasing the brand new track titled "Drug Music" to be featured on the band's sixth self-produced LP titled Blood Money, scheduled for release in March of 2014.
Speaking publicly for the first time in four years, founder and frontman Edsel Dope weighs in what fans can expect:
"It sounds like Dope. But it's next level. It's Dope in 2014. With every record, the chemistry changes, the band changes and the sound expands. I'm really happy with how it's turning out. It's heavy, it's pointed, it's punk, pissed off, angry, electronic, noisy, melodic and metal. It picks up where No Regrets left off and yet somehow has a lot of the punk / industrial energy of the early Felons And Revolutionaries stuff. It's Dope. And like all Dope, it's best when played extremely loud and while traveling at dangerously high speeds. We'll be putting out more of these teaser clips as we get closer to 2014."
Edsel finished, "Truth is, after 13 years of non-stop recording and touring with Dope, I was burnt and I just needed a break from it all. I'm ready to go now! I'm excited to get out there and re-connect with the fans and with that energy and feeling of being on tour. We are gonna do a month worth of shows and lose our fuckin' minds before I slide back into the studio and put the finishing touches on the new album."
