Broken Hope - Buried The Hatchet With Deicide


After the blow-out and the "he said-she said" drama surrounding the early departure of Broken Hope from the Deicide tour, the two parties apparently kissed and made up. (Read about the "drama" right here)







According to a press release by the band's public relations agency:

"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."

Really don't like the smell of this... so fishy. Almost political, like Benton's somehow a millionaire and for whatever price BH have sold out their credibility so that their musical careers still have legs to stand on. Normally I hate the pot being stirred like this, but it's such an about-face from the earlier BH [individual statements] that I'm struggling to see a more innocent, yet believable, explanation...

(Side-note, I've never actually heard BH's music... just been following the latest train-wreckish chain of events)

Sounds like a "hey everyone, we're taking the high road as a result of our PR people informing us it would be a good decision"

Benton's been a ******** ever since he started Deicide and the oinly person damaging Glenn's image (or whatever you want to call it) is the guy himself.
This kissing and making up reeks of the booking agency's meddling and telling Broken Hope if they don't apologize and such they'll be thrwon out of the bokking agency.

Someone had to "clean up the mess".

If they come out publicly with their drama, that's what happens. It looks a bit fake though.

All this sounds fishy and hypocritical and doesn't make me like Glen Benton more than before.
