BROKEN HOPE announces “The Docking Dead” video contest



Chicagoan death metallers BROKEN HOPE are calling on fans to create the best video for the track, “The Docking Dead.” The winning submission will be chosen by the band, and they will use it as an official BROKEN HOPE video! The winner will also receive entry to “The Best In Brutality” tour date of their choice with a guest and VIP access, plus official band merchandise and a signed postcard.


The theme for “The Docking Dead” involves a zombie apocalypse that spreads worldwide, due to an “undead foreskin restoration” gone wrong (read the original lyrics for inspiration!).
