BROKEN HOPE to play first UK shows in their entire history
BROKEN HOPE have joined forces with extreme metallers INTERNAL BLEEDING, along with openers THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA and BLEEDING UTOPIA, to bring their live show to UK shores for the first time in the history of the band! The 'APRIL ATROCITY EUROPEAN TOUR' includes three special UK dates this coming April 2015. Founding member and guitarist Jeremy Wagner comments on how it feels for the band to finally play their first shows in the UK:
“I speak for all of us in BROKEN HOPE when I say we’re excited, stoked, chuffed, and thrilled to tour Europe in April on the perfectly titled, ‘APRIL ATROCITY TOUR.’ This time, we’re headlining—which is a first—and our old friends, INTERNAL BLEEDING, are coming along for the ride, and this all makes for an awesome lineup that also includes The Walking Dead Orchestra and Bleeding Utopia. From WARSAW to GLASGOW, this is tour is will leave a mark!
Moreover, this tour is EXTRA SPECIAL as it brings BROKEN HOPE to the UK & SCOTLAND for the FIRST TIME in our entire career!!! Our UK fans have been writing us for years, begging for us to perform there, but it’s never been able to happen—until NOW! That said, I’m ecstatic that BROKEN HOPE is finally going to bring our brand of DEATH METAL to the UK! And I promise, our concerts will be worth the wait and unforgettable!
Spread the word, BROKEN HOPE is coming back to EUROPE in APRIL!”
The tour dates rack up as follows:
21st April - Nambucca, London 22nd April - Audio, Glasgow 23rd April - The Hub, Plymouth
The latest album OMEN of DISEASE features Trevor Strnad of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER on backing vocals for the track 'Rendered Into Lard'. The album also features the return of BROKEN HOPES’ former (and brilliant) album cover artist, Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, KREATOR, HYPOCRISY plus many more). BROKEN HOPE has absolutely delivered their sickest, most ferocious creation to date with OMEN of DISEASE…and they’re just getting started.
