UFC Fighter Juliana “Killer” Miller Stars in New Dope Music Video

With less than 3 months remaining until the release of their seventh studio album Blood Money Part Zer0, New York City electro metal heads Dope are back with another music video – this one for the track “Best Of Me.” Frontman Edsel Dope is an avid MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fanatic and made the sport the backdrop for the new video. The video stars Juliana “Killer” Miller – the recent winner of The Ultimate Fighter 30 – as one of the combatants in the video. The video was shot prior to Juliana’s win, which brought her an exclusive contract in the UFC. The video captures the spirit of the extreme sport as the band performs their latest single around the action. The visually captivating video was directed by Edsel Dope / Co-Directed by Matt Zane and can be seen here:

 

“I’m a huge MMA fan and this song presented a great opportunity for me to create a visual piece that showcases my passion for the sport. We had such a great time filming this video and I’m so proud of Juliana for kicking so much ass in the UFC,“ explains Edsel Dope.  

 

To coincide with the release of the new song, Dope is releasing the track listing and album cover for the upcoming album, Blood Money Part Zer0. The band has already released the songs: “Believe (Feat. Drama Club),” “Fuck It Up” and “No Respect.” Blood Money Part Zer0 is the band’s first release in 7 years and is the follow-up to 2016’s highly successful Blood Money Part 1, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard top 200, selling over 15K units in its first week. Dope has sold more than a million combined albums and amassed an incredible audience of nearly 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify while racking up more than 130 million plays on their cult classic “Die MF Die.” In a move to demonstrate the band’s sincere appreciation for their loyal fanbase for more than 2 decades, the band is giving away Blood Money Part Zer0 for FREE digitally.

Edsel

 

Dope has spent the last 25 years delivering its uncompromising message to the masses. Through their six previous studio albums, the band has never pulled punches with their music or their message. The band made a name for themselves around New York City and eventually signed with Epic Records for their debut. The sophomore album Life spawned the track “Die MF Die” which has become a staple in basic training and garnered the band a dedicated military following from that introduction. The band has also found mainstream success through their inclusion in various movie soundtracks and wrestling integrations specifically with the WWE. At a time when music trends changed, Dope continued to maintain its relevance with its audience through direct fan correspondence. This relationship garners Dope approximately 1.7 million monthly listeners, puts them in the top 1% of all streaming artists and a dedicated following that most people are unaware of to this day. As the band gets ready to launch into the next 25 years of their career with Blood Money Part Zer0, the world needs the brutal honesty that Edsel and Dope have come to be known for.
