Reformed Montreal rockers SLAVES ON DOPE have signed a worldwide deal with THC:Music/Rocket Science Ventures. The band’s new album, “Over The Influence”, will be released in the spring. A digital-only EP, “Careless Coma”, will be made available on November 1.
The first single from “Careless Coma” has already started creating a buzz, garnering airplay on rock stations throughout the U.S. and Canada, including rotation on Montreal rock mainstay CHOM-FM, and a video that premiered on Loudwire.com. The band also recently made an appearance at the Heavy MTL festival, where they shared the stage with the likes of KISS, DISTURBED, ANTHRAX, GODSMACK, MACHINE HEAD, IN FLAMES, TRIVIUM, MORBID ANGEL, CHILDREN OF BODOM and more.
“Over The Influence” was produced and mixed by Kevin Jardine and will reportedly feature a guest appearance by THE AGONIST vocalist Alissa White-Gluz.

SLAVES ON DOPE‘s “Inches from the Mainline” album was released through Ozzy Osbourne‘s now-defunct Divine Recordings label. After Divine Recordings lost its distribution deal with EMI‘s Priority Records, the band was left without a label. After a long search, a deal was struck with Bieler Bros. Records. 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.
