BROKEN HOPE To Issue New CD Under Different Name, Band Future Uncertain

Longtime Illinois death metallers BROKEN HOPE have decided to issue their latest CD, tentatively entitled Flesh Mechanic, under a different name following internal disagreements that have delayed the album's completion. Here's an official statement on the matter as posted on the group's official web site:

With only the vocal tracking and mixing left for BROKEN HOPE's next release Flesh Mechanic, a decision has been made to not release it as a 'BROKEN HOPE recording.' It has turned into something new. We have decided to put BROKEN HOPE on extended hold for now.

During the recording of Flesh Mechanic, a couple of the guys lost interest in the process for various non-music related reasons. Therefore the project took new meaning and direction by the others that continued the recording. Everyone has advanced at different levels and we have all grown in different directions musically and non-musically. All of this led to difficulties in completing the record as the unit that started it. The material will instead be released under a different name (soon to be announced) by the members that completed and contributed material. It will be a separate entity from BROKEN HOPE entirely and will definitely have different things to offer. This is certainly not a bad thing by any means. AND YES, IT IS DEATH METAL! WE DID NOT SELL OUT ON THE NEW SH.T!"

BROKEN HOPE had commenced the recording process for Flesh Mechanic without record company backing and had hoped to secure a deal with the new album. More information on BROKEN HOPE and the as-yet-unnamed new project will be made available shortly.
