American alternative metal giants Breaking Benjamin are back on track, and set to rock the US with a string of live shows this winter and spring.
The boys will commence their 2016 run on January 17, live at the legendary House of Blues venue in Houston, TX. The trek will continue across the country with fast pace and tightly packed dates, taking the gang to such notable cities as San Antonio, New Orleans, Dallas, Houston, and more.
Note that young rockers Starset will take the role of support act during the tour’s first half.
After over three months of intensive touring, Breaking Benjamin will end the trek on April 23 with a massive show at the Central Florida Fairgrounds & Exposition Park in Orlando, FL.
In 2015, Breaking Benjamin have released “Dark Before Dawn,” their first studio album in six years, also marking the fifth studio effort in the band’s opus.

Their first album was released in 2002 under the title of “Saturate,” but it took one more effort to reach success. In 2004, Breaking Benjamin’s sophomore album “We Are Not Alone” was released, successfully selling over one million copies in the US thanks to hit singles “So Cold” and “Sooner or Later.”
The band established their status of rock torchbearers with two more successful efforts – 2006’s “Phobia” and 2009’s “Dear Agony,” but the seemingly happy story was about to turn sour. Although new hits like “The Diary of Jane,” “Breath,” “I Will Not Bow,” and “Give Me a Sign” kept coming, the band entered a very rough period in 2010, riddled with bad internal communication, e-mail firings, lawsuits, health issues, and an ultimate hiatus.
Not everyone was able to get out of this hassle. As a matter of fact, Burnley was the only one to make it as the rest of the band either walked out or was fired. Ben reformed the group as a five-piece and laid the foundation for a new album. The effort was soon wrapped up and released in June 2015 under the title of “Dark Before Dawn.” The result? Massive success of course, as the band got their very first No. 1 album on the US Billboard 200 chart!
Seemingly stronger than ever, Breaking Benjamin are back in style. The band now consists of Benjamin Burnley on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Aaron Bruch on bass guitar, Keith Wallen on rhythm guitar, Jasen Rauch on lead guitar, and Shaun Foist in the back behind the drum kit. The lads deliver an amazing, revitalized show. Get Breaking Benjamin concert tickets online now, because the boys are back in town!
