American Apathy is the fourth studio album by nu metal band Dope. It was released July 26, 2005 on Artemis Records and managed to sell 9,000 copies in it's first week according to Nielsen SoundScan
Disappointed with the label's perceived lack of promotion for the album, the band left Epic and joined Artemis Records, a New York independent record label. Lead guitarist Virus, would now act as sole guitarist in Slade's departure, and he would contribute to the songwriting significantly.
Dope's third studio album was titled Group Therapy. It was innovative in that it also featured a video for each song; meaning in total those who purchased the album received thirteen audio songs and videos. One song from that album, Today is the Day served as the official theme song for WWE's pay-per-view event No Mercy in October 2003. The songs "Falling Away", "Bitch", "Motivation", "Burn", and "So Low" were featured in the video game; MTX Mototrax, in both full and instrumental versions.

See; American Apathy for more information.
By 2005 Dope had regrouped once more, the band had a new bassist; Brix Milner. For their new album entitled American Apathy, the band returned to a harder sound similar in some respects to their debut, in an Industrial metal style. Amongst the 14 tracks present was a cover of Depeche Mode's "People Are People".
Although released eight years after the band formed, four albums in and on an independent label, American Apathy performed well in the charts. It was a #1 hit on the Top Heatseekers chart, for the first time in the band's history and it also saw the band's highest charting on the Billboard chart to date.
Ironically, Ben Graves of the Murderdolls joined Dope as the live drummer on a tour of Japan. In fact that wasn't the only inter-group mixing between the two bands; in 2006 Brix Milner filled in for the injured Kid Kid on bass, in Murderdolls front man Wednesday 13's solo band.
Edsel Dope and Virus became involved in an alternative pop rock side-project with Edsel playing drums, called Makeshift Romeo. This also witnessed Edsel removing his dreadlocks which he had worn all throughout his time with Dope.
