Broken Hope Reveal New Lineup With Chimaira + Disgorge Members
The Chicago death metal band Broken Hope have added a couple new members. Former Chimaira guitarist Matt Szlachta and Disgorge bassist Diego Soria are the latest additions to a lineup that also includes band founder and guitarist Jeremy Wagner, vocalist Damian Leski and drummer Mike Miczek.
"I'm far beyond delighted with our new members Diego and Matt," Wagner says. "Both of these guys are old friends of mine, and both are amazing musicians of the highest order. Diego's history with extreme death-metallers Disgorge and Matt's contributions to Chimaira bring a new level of professionalism and brutality to Broken Hope."
Wagner continues, "Moreover, Diego and Matt possess a true love for death metal and grind. Their passion for extreme metal was something their predecessors lacked--and it's a most-welcome adrenaline shot that Broken Hope needed badly. See you all in 2015, stronger and sicker than ever!"
Broken Hope also announced a slate of European festival dates this spring and summer. They'll also be playing the Full Terror Assault-Open Air Festival in Cave-In-Rock, Ill. on Sept. 12. See the dates below.
The band's last studio album 'Omen of Disease' was released in 2013 after the band was reformed following a more than decade-long hiatus.
