We all know what rock and roll offered a 20th century boy, but here in the nu century, it's clear that Dope Body are the perfect amalgam of what makes rock today. Savagely contorting while pulling the hair of their influences' sounds, Dope Body chew up and spit it out with focused ferocity, making modern punk rock at it's most lethal. A synthesis of screaming riffs, brooding lyrics and digital trash, backed by a loping, tumbling rhythm section that absolutely never lets them down, Dope Body produce waves of pure primal energy so up in your face that it's impossible to ignore, iced with a sheer patina of melody. On their latest release, Kunk, Dope Body thrust themselves into deeper waters that grow thicker and more humid with every track. Recorded during the Lifer sessions, Kunk showcases the band at their most raw and unfiltered. And while we be eagerly awaiting a North American tour from the boys (Europe is still getting theirs), you can satisfy your hunger for a bit with this slab of fresh juice --served up medium gelatinous!
The video for "Obey", directed by Dope Body's own Andrew Laumann, is visually just as seductive, dangerous and arousing as the sounds themselves. Anchored with muddy chugs of bass, "Obey" skanks and slithers like an eerie signal from the depths of a Baltimore basement. Like an oily snake charmer, Laumann's deep growl hypnotizes you into submission. Only then can you "OBEY"! Get a small taste of the sheer, unabridged ataxia that is a Dope Body live show by watching "Obey" now!
