Tips on getting a dope body with Dope Body, who have a new album coming out in October!

It’s the middle of swimsuit season, folks, and don’t deny it — your bod is still not quite bikini-ready.

Do not fret! Here are some tips from Drag City rockers Dope Body on how to get, as they say, a dope body.

1. Jump up and down with excitement over the announcement of a new Dope Body album, titled Lifer. Up, down, up, down. Repeat 20, 30, or 40 times, until you feel that rush of endorphins.

2. Prepare to pre-order Lifer, which will be available on October 21. Flex your fingers. Crack your knuckles. Practice the motion of hitting the “add to cart” button and work on your reflexes to ensure the album will be added to your cart the second it goes on sale.

3. Head-bang, thrash, or otherwise dance around to “Hired Gun,” which you can listen to below (via Noisey). Remember, the more calories you burn now, the more ice cream you can eat later.

4. Head-bang, thrash, or otherwise dance when you see them on tour too:
