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.
