“Cavalry”, the new Antoine Benhini-directed video from Montreal, Quebec, Canada rockers SLAVES ON DOPE, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s latest album, “Over The Influence”, which was released in February 2012 via THC: Music/Rocket Science Ventures. The CD was produced and mixed by Kevin Jardine, features a guest appearance by Jonathan Cabana, lead singer of Quebec deathcore band BLIND WITNESS, on the track “Dear Enemies”.
Commented SLAVES ON DOPE frontman Jason Rockman: “We are really excited to be releasing the ‘Cavalry’ video. We have had it filmed for over a year, and really wanted it to be the final chapter to ‘Over The Influence’, a goodbye of sorts to the album, and a great foot to lead with for the ‘Covers Vol. 1’ that will be out very soon! We cannot wait for people to see it , and to play two of the biggest metal festivals in eastern Canada this summer.”

SLAVES ON DOPE‘s second major album, “Metafour”, was released in 2003.
In March 2004, SLAVES ON DOPE announced it was going on hiatus due to Jason Rockman leaving the band. The group officially reformed in 2009.
