punk in their music. Here´s an interview done with them in april 2015
me a little bit history of the group?
-At the very beginning, Stoner started to play with Doc 5 years ago. But
Dope Out became real when Crash joined the band for the first EP in 2013.
And now a brand new badass as Mad Manner came to play drums to put Dope Out
for a next level.

family, work, interests and something bad about everyone? Earlier bands?

-We're more metal and rock'n'roll than punk but we're still open minded
and we take the past to build the future and dope'n'roll
Dope Out are you satisfied with the name? How did it came up? Which is
the best bandname you know?

something easy to scream.
Stoner and Crash loves Five Fingers Death Punch for a name
Velvet Revolver for Doc
Machine Head for Mad.
What ´s the best thing with playing live?
-The fans and turn up the volume to 10
And where is best to play? And the worst place?

ago), but there is so many places so it's hard to choose only one.
The worst are the smalls bars where we can't play as loud as we want to.
How is to play this sort of music in France right now?

electronic music or French variety...

How is it to live in France now? Politically?
-We don't care about Politics
Is there any good bands from France now? Is the punkscene big? How is it
in your hometown?

we're not really aware about the punk scene.

personal experiences. He doesn't write in French just because we only listen

Your cover on your CD looks really nice, is it important to have a record
cover which shows people which type of music you play? Your favorite
-Nowadays, the graphics are as important as the sound.
Stoner and Doc love the recordcover of Apetite for Destruction

Is it important to get out physical records of your stuff? Why or why
-Yes but only during the gigs, and it's a way for us to make our work
