No Cover had the priviledge to work with Slaves on Dope at the height of their stardom on Ozzy Osbourne’s Divine Recordings. The subsequent release, Inches From The Mainline, helped the band reach a much larger audience through radio airplay, retail sales, and live appearances including the Ozzfest and the SnoCore Tours alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera, Godsmack, Incubus, Disturbed, Linkin Park, QOTSA, Fear Factory, Soulfy and more.
Now After over 23 years together, Slaves on Dope return with HORSE, an album that will redefine what the world thinks of the band. Enlisting the likes of Darryl McDaniels (RUN DMC), Bill Kelliher (Mastodon), H.R (Bad Brains) and Lee-la Baum (The Damn Truth). The cover art is an original painting created especially for the release by Marvel Comics artist Marco Rudy. HORSE is the next chapter in the story that is Slaves On Dope.
“Working with Darryl was a dream come true for us. Being RUN DMC fans since we were kids, he has always been someone we wanted to collaborate with. He came to Montreal prepared and later down his parts in 3 takes. A true pro. We bonded over our love of comic books and Public Enemy, and he came back in July for the Montreal Comicon, so we shot the video for the song while he was here. We can’t wait for the world to hear what we created ! “
“It was a dream come true to collaborate with members of RUN DMC, Mastodon and Bad Brains. These are all bands we have idolized and respected forever. It speaks volumes to the passion for creating and giving back!” –Jason Rockman
Let’s hope we don’t have to wait 23 more years for their next album!
