KOCH Records has announced the signing of Chicago-based hard-rock/nu-metal act Dope. The band’s fifth release titled "No Regrets" will be released on June 10th, 2008.

Dope lead vocalist / rhythm guitarist Edsel Dope and long time lead guitarist Virus have revamped Dope’s line-up for "No Regrets." Joining the band on bass guitar and backing vocals is Tripp Tribbet (former lead vocalist for Ozzfest 2002 band Twisted Method and younger brother of Mudvayne/ HellYeah guitarist Greg Tribbet). On drums, Dope recruited former Genitorturers drummer Angel Bartolotta.

Zack Wylde lent his signature guitar squeals to Dope on the new track “Addiction.” A video for “Addiction” is currently in development.

Dope recently completed a U.S. headlining tour showcasing new tracks from "No Regrets" including the track “Violence” for which they shot a video during the tour. A snippet of the unmixed track is up on the band’s website now. On the West Coast leg of the tour, Dope was direct support for Black Label Society at the request of Zakk Wylde.

Dope has recently returned to Chicago and is currently mixing their upcoming KOCH Records debut with producer/engineer Tadpole, who recently completed the tracking on the upcoming Disturbed album.

Another one of Dope’s new tracks “Nothing Here for Me” is featured on the new Guitar Hero 3 video game and will be included as a bonus track on "No Regrets." More...

Mortiis is confirmed to support legendary industrial shock rockers the Genitorturers on their American tour.

Mortiis had this to say in a statement:

"We're really excited to be touring with the Genitorturers as I've personally been fascinated by and into them for years. We think our aggressive approach to industrial rock and energetic live shows will complement the Genitorturers sound and live show perfectly."

They added: "After we did the Blackest of the Black tour last year, we had some interesting US tours going on that unfortunately didn't happen, so we're really stoked to get back out to the US and hopefully to play to a lot of new people and also our old fans. We totally believe that our fans would connect with Genitorturers and vice versa."

Crumbsuckers To Reunite For Anniversary Show

Legendary New York hardcore/metal act CRUMBSUCKERS will be reuniting for a special show to mark the 20th anniversary of their classic "Life of Dreams" release. Original members Chris Notaro (vocals), Chuck Lenihan (guitar; GENITORTURERS), Gary Meskil (bass; PRO-PAIN) and Dan Richardson (drums; LIFE OF AGONY, PRO-PAIN, STEREOMUD) will be accompanied by an as-yet-undetermined second guitarist for a reunion concert in New York City this summer.

"Over the past week, I have been in close contact with my old bandmates via phone and e-mail," Meskil confirmed. "I'm happy to say that all are optimistic and xcited about a CRUMBSUCKERS reunion."

"At this point we are still in the early planning stages, but we intend to play a special 'Life Of Dreams' 20th anniversary reunion concert in NYC this summer (date and venue to be announced), which will certainly be a lot of fun."

CRUMBSUCKERS released two full-length albums through the Combat label — 1986's "Life of Dreams" and 1988's "Beast On My Back" — before finally calling it a day in the early 90's. Several members embarked on a melodic metal venture called HEAVY RAIN, but that band was short-lived. The rhythm section of Meskil and Richardson went on to PRO-PAIN, while Chuck Lenihan ended up with GENITORTURERS.

Breaking News

Morbid Angel Member Is "Missing"

The following message was sent out by GENITORTURERS frontwoman Gen and MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist David Vincent regarding missing MORBID ANGEL guitarist Tony Norman:

"MORBID ANGEL are scheduled to fly to Portugal this Wednesday for a huge festival. As of today, no one has seen or heard from Tony Norman, MORBID ANGEL's rhythm guitarist, who also used to play in the band MONSTROSITY.

He was last seen by us at our friends wedding when him and his girlfriend were seated at our table. This was well over a month ago and no one has had contact with him since that we can determine.

We have contacted many of his friends, parents etc... no one has heard from him We think that he has recently moved within Tampa to a new place… No one seems to know where and none of his phone numbers are working…. so no one at this point is able to reach him.

At this point David and the rest of the MORBID ANGEL crew are really worried about him as it is not like him to be out of touch. A missing person's report has been filed.

If you know him or anyone that has contact with him… please help us contact anyone you know who might also know him or his girlfriend."
