SLAVES ON DOPE Releases Emotionally-Charged 'Metafour' On May 6
Through Bieler Bros. Records
Montreal's SLAVES ON DOPE… Few names in rock music conjure up so many images and emotions. What does it mean? What is the message? The message is the music… and music is something to behold. The new record is dark and powerful but at the same time it soars, it lifts, it promises a glimpse of the future while staying firmly rooted in rocks rich history! On May 6th, SLAVES ON DOPE releases their sophomore effort; an emotionally supercharged disc entitled 'Metafour' on Bieler Bros. Records/MCA (distributed by Universal).
Self-described as 'pure rock', the four members that comprise SLAVES ON DOPE (Kevin, Rob, Frank & Jason) have channeled their surging rage into this new outing with a laser sharp focus. Bassist Frank Salvaggio describes the band's evolution as "a non-diluted, emotional form of heavy rock. Our influences forever have been AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Metallica & Stone Temple Pilots, and they are all part of our equation and what we've become. 'Metafour' is a purging, or a cleansing of demons, for us. We not only open up a little more on this album, but we see things a little more clearly. It's a definite maturing."
The highly anticipated follow-up to their debut 'Inches from the Mainline' was recorded at Bieler Bros. Studios in Boca Raton, FL and produced by the band and co-produced by Jason Slater (Snake River Conspiracy, Good Charlotte, Earshot) and Troy Van Leeuwan (Queens Of The Stone Age and A Perfect Circle). Bieler Bros. is planning an onslaught of promotional activity building towards the May 6th release date. SLAVES ON DOPE will be spending the next couple months on tour with new label mates Nonpoint and Skindred, which will culminate in a release party/showcase in Los Angeles on May 6th. The current itinerary includes:
With SKINDRED / NONPOINT
April 10 Orangevale, CA The Boardwalk
April 12 Tucson, AZ Skrappy's
April 13 Phoenix, AZ Mason Jar
April 14 Las Vegas, NV Huntridge Theater
April 16 San Antonio, TX White Rabbit
April 22 Atlanta, GA Cotton Club
April 24 Orlando, FL House of Blues (w/ Darwin's Waiting Room and Skindred)
April 25 Miami, FL Bi-Centennial Park (featuring Godsmack / Stone Sour/ Skindred)
April 26 West Palm Beach, FL Kelsey Club (w/ Skindred)
April 28 - May 4 SLAVES ON DOPE / SKINDRED tour
May 6 Los Angeles, CA The Whiskey (showcase/release party)
'Metafour''s first single, "Go", impacts at radio later in March but is already receiving huge support from many stations. With an arsenal of poignant anthems like "So Clear", "Casualty", and "Pattern" SLAVES ON DOPE exhibits more than enough potential to break wide open, while retaining ample potency to preserve the loyalty of their core fan base.
Slaves on Dope…There is no faith but what we make!
