Regarding the new album—-BH guitarist/lyricist/founding father Jeremy Wagner says:

“BROKEN HOPE studio album number SEVEN?! Un-fucking-believable! I’m floored at how amazing our new album turned out. The songs are relentless and violent and dark and heavy–and ALL from a fresh and ferocious place we haven’t shared before. Moreover, thanks to my new studio and the stellar work of engineering/producing Jedi–SCOTT CREEKMORE–the production is on a sonic level like we’ve never had in our career.

Thanks to my brothers: DAMIAN, MIKE, MATT, DIEGO, and SCOTT–ALL of whom brought their amazing talent and skills not just to the table, but kicked it into the stratosphere! Thank you to WES BENSCOTER for collaborating with us to create the epic/sick/THING-inspired album artwork, and a huge thanks to CENTURY MEDIA worldwide for being in our corner with this new album.

For me personally, I feel MUTILATED and ASSIMILATED is my own finest hour as a guitarist and lyricist since I formed this band as teenager. I ‘ve never felt this inspired before. The album has my strongest riffage to date, it also has Leski riffage on a few songs, it has my best friends on it, and in a crazy twist, I used JEFF HANNEMAN’s guitars to write the album with and used them to track with in honor of his influence on myself AND the world of metal. 

There’s a LOT going on with this new BH album! I can’t wait for you all to hear MUTILATED and ASSIMILATED. DEATH METAL forever!”
Release date: June 23rd 2017
The album will be released as a Limited Edition CD+DVD Digipak in North America and in a Special Edition CD+DVD Digipak in Europe, as well as digital & streaming versions available on all the major outlets worldwide.

BROKEN HOPE: live concert blu-ray/ live album trailer unveiled!

image

Chicago death-metal-legacy band, BROKEN HOPE, have revealed the trailer for their FIRST-EVER Blu-Ray Concert DVD and Live album via DECIBEL MAGAZINE!

“LIVE DISEASE at BRUTAL ASSAULT” was filmed and recorded at the 19th Annual BRUTAL ASSAULT FESTIVAL at Fortress Josefov, CZECH REPUBLIC on August 8th, 2014 where BROKEN HOPE shared the stage with DEVIN TOWNSEND, AMON AMARTH and other metal titans in front of 20,000+ fans.

The “LIVE DISEASE at BRUTAL ASSAULT” Blu-Ray Concert DVD and Live Album will be released WORLDWIDE via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS on September 18th, 2015.

Watch the exclusive premiere of the concert DVD here:

This Live Concert Blu-Ray and Live Album are historic firsts as BROKEN HOPE has never before released a Live Concert DVD or Live album-until NOW! The concert was filmed by a multi-camera crew on a dozen pro-cameras and pieced together and edited by video-directing god, Tommy Jones (SLAYER, TESTAMENT, LAMB of GOD) while the audio was recorded by Thilo Fehlinger (EXODUS, DEATH ANGEL). Moreover, metal-art master, Mark Rudolph (DECIBEL MAGAZINE, METAL HAMMER MAGAZINE, CELTIC FROST) was commissioned to create ALL of the exterior and interior packaging and cover artwork.

The end result of this collaboration is one of the most visually and sonically stellar Death Metal DVD concert and Live Album packages EVER released!

BROKEN HOPE founding-father-Jeremy Wagner-says:
“Playing BRUTAL ASSAULT in 2014 was a dream come true. Being one of the Main Stage acts at the fest in front of those thousands of insane fans was also a HUGE dream come true. And then…above all that…we had this epic moment captured by a pro video crew and also recorded by the best soundman in the biz, and it made for a perfect storm that enabled us to put it together to share with metal fans the world over to enjoy forever! We couldn’t have done all this without the mega-talent of TOMMY JONES…Tommy took a million pieces of footage and numerous audio files, pieced them all together, aligned everything, edited it all, and made for us (and the world), an absolutely stunning concert DVD! We even added the BROKEN HOPE Documentary-Film, “25 YEARS of SICKNESS-The History of BROKEN HOPE” to this Blu-Ray! This film was released only in North America with “OMEN of DISEASE’…now the entire world will have this amazing film-and in a HI-DEF Blu-Ray format! Last thing I wanna say is: the skills of THILO FEHLINGER, SCOTT CREEKMORE and CHRIS WISCO made our first-ever Live Album a loud, clear, and sonically-bombarding tour-de-force! This entire DVD/CD package is a monumental feather in our cap!”

“LIVE DISEASE” Video Director-Tommy Jones-adds:
“This BROKEN HOPE project has come out SO SICK! It has the quality and look of a high-end and polished commercial piece, but as a completely brutal, death metal concert experience. Definitely one of the COOLEST LOOKING live pieces I have been able to work on in the death metal genre. Really happy with how it all came together.”

Chicago’s death metal titans BROKEN HOPE have announced their direct supporting role to IMMOLATION on the upcoming “EUROPEAN CONSPIRACY TOUR” which was created by MASSIVE MUSIC (POLAND).

BROKEN HOPE‘s Jeremy Wagner says, “On behalf of BROKEN HOPE, we’re all extremely excited to tour with IMMOLATION across Europe!

Through our history, we’ve toured with many “long running” death metal bands, but never had the opportunity to tour with IMMOLATION until now. Both Ross Dolan and Bob Vigna are old and dear friends of mine, so on a personal level, it’s going to be a very fun tour amongst friends…and for the fans: we’re giving everyone a deadly metal package–and they’re all going to get a double-dose of IMMOLATION and BROKEN HOPE‘s death metal pummeling. These intense and concerts are not to be missed!”
