Dope Body to release new album Kunk on Drag City, tour Europe

Like legendary wizards who have been summoned to defeat the nefarious forces of bubblegum garage rock and (shudder) bro-drop EDM, Dope Body have arisen from their slumber, ready to unleash a tirade of rock & roll fury on the land. Since 2008, the Baltimore-based noise rockers have been doing their thang, and now they’re back with a new album for Drag City called… Kunk.

The new single, “Old Grey,” kinda sounds like it was produced by an AM morning shock jock with a wacky sounds-effects board IN HELL, so sure. Why not. Kunk. You can get Kunk‘d up come August 28, when the album drops.

Dope Body will be heading to Europe this fall, where they’ll play a few dates with Future Islands, then venture on into the Old World on their own.
