The Dopamines are back in full swing with their best raging punk record to date, theirfirst LP in 5 years. The Dopamines are back in full swing with their 4th and bestrecord to date, and their first in 5 years. The Cincinnati, Ohio band return withanother dose of hard hitting, fast acting punk rock. Fans of the band are alreadyfamiliar with their self-deprecating, alcohol soaked brand of punk, but for newlisteners, Tales of Interest will be much more than that. The lyrical content has moredepth, the feel of the record is much darker than past releases and the band itself hasgrown into a more mature albeit still drunk version of their former selves. This is therecord The Dopamines have always wanted to make. While fans will see a return toform in some aspects, this record is more than a good soundtrack to a wild party.Tales of Interest is very much an exorcism on vinyl. The Dopamines have released LPson It's Alive Records and Paper and Plastic Records, owned by Roger from ska-punkband Less Than Jake but this is the band's first record on independent label RadGirlfriend Records and it only made sense. The band has usually toured with anunofficial second guitar player, most often filled by Mikey Erg of The Ergs!, but neverrecorded with a fourth person. Since 2013, Josh Goldman, who owns Rad GirlfriendRecords and plays in The Raging Nathans, has been the bands permanent 2nd guitarplayer, making "Tales of Interest" the first record in their catalogue with a secondguitar. Here's what songwriter/guitarist Jon Lewis had to say about the record: "It'ssuper angry and super aggressive. It exceeded all my expectations and I have ZEROcriticism. It was a lot of fun writing a bunch of crazy shit and then tweaking it withMichael, Jon, and Josh to make sure it didn't stray too far off the reservation." Fans canexpect touring, music videos and more. The band has been relatively quite the last fewyears, playing shows sporadically but "Tales of Interest" seems to have breathed newlife into an already loved and passionate band.
