The Rise of Breaking Benjamin
Breaking Benjamin was originally formed in 1998 as a cover band playing the hits of musicians such as Weezer and The Beatles. The group got its name when lead singer Benjamin Burnley broke a microphone during a performance and the owner of the venue slurred his opinions towards the band. After lead singer Burnley moved to California, the band was forced to break up. Shortly after, Burnley formed a new band called Plan 9 but a few months later he changed the name to Breaking Benjamin.
Breaking Benjamin first found popularity on the radio, when one of their singles got into the hands of a DJ at an active rock radio station. He played the group’s “Polyamorous”, and it soon became the most requested track on the station. The music industry soon picked up on the buzz and several companies approached Breaking Benjamin wanting to sign them to record deals. After signing with Hollywood Records, Breaking Benjamin released their debut studio album Saturate, which received mixed but optimistic reviews. Their second album, We Are Not Alone, found much greater commercial success reaching platinum status with hits like "So Cold" and "Sooner or Later."
Change Can Be Good
In 2006 they released Phobia, followed by Dear Agony in 2009, then the band went on a hiatus in 2010 due to illnesses faced by their lead singer. After a period of internal drama and band replacements, the new group released Dark Before Dawn in 2015 and then Ember in 2018. The band is set to release the album Aurora in January 2020!
Beginning in January 2020, Breaking Benjamin went on tour with fellow hard rockers Korn. The tour began in late January in Allentown PA at the PPL Center and continued through several states as well as parts of Canada. They visited Manchester NH, Grand Rapids MI, Columbus OH, Green Bay WI, Fresno CA, and several other States. In Canada they visited Montreal and Quebec.
While there always seemed to be some internal drama with the band, illnesses or sudden lineup changes, Breaking Benjamin continued to produce some of the best fast-selling hard rock music of the decade. Their sound has been consistently described as a 'crunching guitars' with emotional, angst-y lyrics.
