Breaking Benjamin Announce Their Return on Facebook
Breaking Benjamin have finally broken the silence (somewhat) about their return and they did it on Facebook.
Formed in 2004 and hailing from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Breaking Benjamin recorded four studio albums. ‘Saturate’, ‘We Are Not Alone’, ‘Phobia’ and ‘Dear Agony’ sold over 5 million records, collectively. They also included hits like “So Cold”, “Sooner or Later”, “Polyamorous”, “Diary of Jane”, and “I Will Not Bow”. In mid-2010, the band announced their hiatus, due to illness of their frontman Ben Burnley. During that time, a couple members of the band were fired, then a whirlwind of legal activity arose around the use of the band’s name. Eventually, Burnley announced that the fight over the name of the band had been resolved.
Well, late last night (August 19th), the band announced, via Facebook, that they would indeed return and with a new lineup. Joining Burnley will be Jasen Rauch (formerly of Red), Shaun Foist, Aaron Bruch, and Keith Wallen (formerly of Adelitas Way).
