With lyrics inspired by Cyberpunk imagery and subculture Dope Stars
Inc. have beeen mixing industrial beats, acid synths and distorted sounds
with a bratty rock’n’roll sound and attitude since their foundation in may
2003.
With their debut self-produced EP “10.000 Watts Of Artificial
Pleasures” the band catched the interest of the international press and
and got immediately signed with Trisol Music Group (Europe), Metropolis
Records (North America), Subsound Records (Italy) and Death Watch Asia
in Japan to release worldwide 3 albums and 2 Eps: “Neuromance”
(2005), “Make A Star” (2006), “Gigahearts” (2006), “Morning Star”
(2009), “21st Century Slave (2009) infecting through the years an
horde of loyal fans and spreading like a virus over communities and
golobal networks. Songs of Dope Stars Inc. also appeared 3 times on the
soundtrack of the horror movie saga of Saw II, III and IV.
The band toured intensively between 2005 and 2010 performing on stages
across all Europe, Russia, Japan and the US also supporting bands like
London After Midnight, Kirlian Camera, ASP, Apoptygma Berzerk,
Nightwish, Deathstars, Combichrist, My Dying Bride, Ministry, Suicide
Commando and Diary of dreams among the others. The band also
performed at the biggest European festivals like Mera Luna, Wave Gotik
Treffen, Amphi Festival, Summer Darkness, On A Dark Winter
Night, Infest UK, Metalfest, Rock the lake, RGT and Trash Fest I, II
and III.
After releasing the digital single “Banksters” in november 2010 the band
is now ready to release their forthcoming 4th full length album in spring
2011. “Ultrawired”, the new album, will be released following a new
revolutionary model of distribution that will be revealed soon.
The new album will be just pirate ketaware for the TLC generation.
Deeply inspired by the 80’s imagery, icons, idols and attitude. A cocktail of
sounds that mix the modern and futuristic approach of Dope Stars Inc.
with the sounds and atmospheres of the 80’s and breaking any stylistic
rule. Hard-techno, Rockabilly, Indie-electro, Punk-Metal, Synth-Pop and
Rock’n’Roll are just a few of the influences embodied in the new album.
