Chicago, Illinois and Florida death metal warriors BROKEN HOPE and DEICIDE have issued a joint statement apologizing for the rivalry that resulted in BROKEN HOPE being ousted from the DEICIDE, NECRONOMICON and DISGORGE U.S. tour in EL, PASO, TEXAS.                                                                                       BROKEN HOPE made accusations about gear and productions issues in a FACEBOOK post as GLEN BENTON responded to said accusations via an interview with  Metal Webzine, METAL SUCKS pod cast.

BROKEN HOPE unleashed a new video for the track "THE FLESH MECHANIC" VIA BLOODY DISGUSTING. BROKEN HOPE's "THE FLESH MECHANIC" is a featured track from the bands anticipated new release "OMEN OF DISEASE", unleashed 10/1/2013 via CENTURY MEDIA.

DEICIDE are set to unleash "IN THE MINDS OF EVIL", 11/25/2013 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.

Broken Hope and DEICIDE Make Amends for Death Metal Solidarity 

A note from BROKEN HOPE:

BROKEN HOPE and DEICIDE have reached out to each other, have made apologies, and mended their friendship after the debacle at the end of the NO SALVATION TOUR. 

Glen Benton, Shaun Glass, and Jeremy Wagner have been good friends for 20 years and the blow-up in El Paso was completely unnecessary and the situation could have been rectified if all parties talked it out as friends. Moreover, there were some very low-blows lobbed in an effort to maim Glen Benton, and a number of those words were very unfair and very immature, so to that end, we apologize.

That said, both bands have extended olive branches to each other in order to retain their longtime friendships, and to rise above all the worthless drama, finger-pointing, and scandalous fallout that’s plagued both bands.

We’re glad to once again have Benton’s friendship and to have DEICIDE as brothers. FRIENDSHIP and MUSIC are ALL that matters here.

We ask all fans to please embrace our effort to revive our friendship with Glen and DEICIDE, and as we all take a higher, more positive road.




Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-m/ -l-
