Classic Covers: Dope – Thieves

Dope is hinting at their upcoming album Blood Money Part 2 by releasing a brand new video for their cover of Ministry’s industrial / metal classic “Thieves” featuring Andy Leplegua of Combichrist.

The two bands are currently co-headlining the Black Craft Whisky sponsored Blood Lust Death Tour.

If you jump in quick, you can get 50% off of select general admission and VIP meet & greets at EnterTheVault (US dates only) and you can download “Thieves” for free. These offers end on March 10th.

The pointed, yet hilarious, video takes shots at a number of leaders throughout our history, and ultimately climaxes with a ridiculous parody of Donald Trump grabbing Hillary Clinton by the pussy, followed by the two having sex while chugging wine and eating a well done steak. Edsel Dope says:

Like many people, I wasn’t pro Hillary, nor was I pro Trump. I’m pro America and all of the politicians appear to be crooked in one way or another… As a result., we had a good time throwing all of them under the bus in this video.

On his part in the song, Leplegua had this to say:

I’m not a fan of cover songs. When Edsel reached out to me about doing “Thieves” together I was really skeptical – but in the end I think we do the mighty Ministry justice… and I’m sure Uncle Al will love the video!

Dope’s Blood Money Part 1 was released In October 2016, where it debuted at number 27 on the Billboard top 200 album chart. The release date for the highly anticipated follow up Blood Money Part 2 has yet to be announced, but this new track is a sign that it might be coming sooner rather than later.
