Dope have reunited their classic lineup and will be hitting the road for a reunion tour of sorts, dubbed the “Die Mother F–ker Die” tour. Successfully crowdfunded by pre-orders for the band’s first live album, the nu-metal outfit will be making nearly 50 stops along the way.

The trek will begin on Sept. 13 in San Francisco, Calif., head north and gradually works its way east before circling back to the West Coast while hitting the southern half of the United States along the way. No support has been announced yet, though frontman Edsel Dope has stated, “We have selected a sick band for our direct support slot… Due to contractional reasons, support for the ‘Die Mother F–ker Die’ reunion tour will be announced at a later date..” He does promise that the pairing is “long overdue.”

The lineup for this tour will consist of Edsel Dope, Acey Slade, Virus, and Racci Shay, which is largely regarded as the classic incarnation of the band. “We are all really excited about this tour! It’s been a long time since Dope has done a full USA tour….The fact that we are able to do this with the Die Mother F–ker Die reunion lineup makes it that much sweeter and more fun for all involved,” said Dope, adding, “We are gonna play the longest sets of the band’s career… 20 plus song sets every night. Several songs from each of our six albums, including brand new tracks from the upcoming studio album, Blood Money, which is due out later this year via eOne Entertainment…”

“If you are a fan of the band Dope, this is one that you don’t way to miss… Who knows when the four of us will all be able to do this together again,” the frontman also stated.

Blood Money has been long-anticipated by fans, initially slated for a 2014 release. The album has continuously been pushed back, but it now appears to be close to its final release date with the band promising it will be out in the fall. It will mark the first new record from Dope since 2009’s No Regrets. A new song, “Selfish,” was released in 2014 and can be heard here.
