Dope Body is a noise rock band from Baltimore, Maryland formed in 2008 by vocalist Andrew Laumann, guitarist/bassist Zachary Utz, and drummer David Jacober. To date, they have released two full-length records in addition to a cassette tape and two split records.〔Dope Body | Drag City http://www.dragcity.com/artists/dope-body〕 They have since expanded to a quartet, adding bassist Jesse Lyell in 2011, who was replaced by John Jones, late of local contemporaries Roomrunner, the next year.
All natives of the Baltimore area, Dope Body, named for a quote from an online video the band enjoyed, originally came together in 2008 for a one-off show at Baltimore's Natural History museum space, while Andrew Laumann was located in San Francisco.〔Dope Body: Noise-Rock Bros Restore Baltimore's Hard Edge http://www.spin.com/articles/dope-body-noise-rock-bros-restore-baltimores-hard-edge〕 The show was very successful, and the band continued, with Laumann soon moving back to Baltimore and the group releasing the ''Twenty Pound Brick'' cassette the next year. More live dates with the likes of Double Dagger soon followed, as well as a split LP with Brooklyn duo Orphan. 2011 was an especially productive year for Dope Body, with their debut full length ''Nupping'' coming out on Hoss Records, followed by a split record with Detroit's Child Bite. The group expanded its lineup in 2011, adding Jesse Lyell, who had played with Baltimore punk band Sick Weapons, as a full-time bassist. 2012 saw Lyell leaving the group with John Jones, formerly of Roomrunner taking his place, and the release of ''Natural History'' on Drag City records, which was recorded with J. Robbins of Jawbox fame. Dope Body also toured Europe in 2012, released their Saturday EP in 2013 and released their album LIFER in 2014. 〔https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10151228151084791&id=310914069790〕
