While we know that the band is readying an acoustic album due out very soon, Breaking Benjamin vocalist Ben Burnley is ending his 2019 on a high note as he just completed filming the music video for an acoustic version of “Dear Agony” – with none other than Cold’s Scooter Ward and ex-Flyleaf vocalist Lacey Sturm. But wait, there’s (a lot) more!
Congratulations are in order for Breaking Benjamin. Long one of the biggest modern rock bands the genre has to offer, the long-running band has accomplished much in their nearly 2 decades of existence, and while you could list any of their accolades as near the top, their recent milestone for their hit song “The Diary Of Jane” might well be one of their most important. The song, released in 2006 on their album Phobia, still maintains its status as one of the biggest songs of the decade – and the current one, too. The band is also currently on a massive headlining tour, which you can get the scoop on here.
While the band’s upcoming acoustic album doesn’t have a definitive release date (yet), Breaking Benjamin are still touring hard off their successful 2018 album Ember. Filled with some of their biggest tracks to date in “Tourniquet” and “Red Cold River”, Breaking Benjamin have nearly perfected their signature formula into a crystallized, familiar modern rock sheen.
The band is continuing their North American headlining tour, but Breaking Benjamin also partnered up with St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital for an acoustic session, where they performed “Until The End” and a Cyndi Lauper cover of “Time After Time” for children at the hospital. While this will certainly give fans a taste of what to expect on their upcoming acoustic album, it’s all for a good cause – to benefit children who are going through some of the toughest things they’ll ever face.
Long one of hard rock’s most consistent and successful bands, Breaking Benjamin have left almost no stone unturned. About the only thing Breaking Benjamin haven’t done in their career to date is release an acoustic album, but that is set to change – possibly by the end of the year, if the timing is right.
