Dope is heading to Kiev with an exclusive program dedicated to the 20th anniversary of their debut album - Felons and Revolutionaries! The team has been in existence for over 20 years, and it doesn't look like frontman Edsel Doop is going to stop. That is why they go on tour to share with new and old fans the explosive energy that defines their legendary debut.
Date & Place: October 17, Atlas Club.
The band formed near Chicago around two brothers - Edsel Doop (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Simon Doop (keyboards). In 1999, they released their debut album Felons and Revolutionaries. They did not break the record of her sales, but the subsequent albums were quite successful. For example, American Apathy (2005), on which Dope entrusted Depeche Mode and NWA immediately hit the top of the Billboard Heatseekers chart on the day of the release. Unlike many bands from the 90's, Dope was inspired by heavy metal and industrial rock, especially by such influential bands as Ministry and Skinny Puppy. But other genres were no stranger to them, too - the debut album featured a cover of You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive, which can also be heard in American Psycho. And the Debonaire track lit up in Scream 3 tapes and the first movie in The Fast and the Furious series. Dopes have been on tour almost constantly - with Alice Cooper, with Kid Rock, then solo. And now it is time for them to return to Ukraine.
