Dope Reunites For U.S. Tour

dope logo
Bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit may have won the nu metal sweepstakes, but just because they became the brand names of the genre doesn’t mean they were the only names in the genre — or even the best.

Chicago’s Dope had a much better feel for funk than the rest of the nu metal pack, as this track off their debut album, 1999’s Felons and Revolutionaries, funkily demonstrates.

Like a lot of bands, Dope has been through a lot of lineup changes, so for fans of the band’s sophomore album, 2001’s Life, the announcement of the “Die Mother Fucker Die” tour is welcome news indeed.  And there must be a lot of fans of that lineup out there: The band paid for this reunion tour courtesy of a crowdfunding campaign that’s still cooking.

They have quite a few dates lined up. Thinking about going? Leave a comment and let us know where — maybe we’ll see you there.
