Formed during the post-grunge movement of the late ‘90s and early 2000’s, Breaking Benjamin took the alt-rock world by storm. They had the right sound at the right time, and shortly after hitting the scene, music fans hungry for Breaking Benjamin’s brand of aggressive, dark, yet highly melodic rock eagerly grabbed concert tickets and flooded venues to see them perform LIVE. Gutwrenching songs like “So Cold,” “Sooner or Later,” “Rain” (which was co-written by Billy Corgan), “The Diary of Jane,” “Breath” and “I Will Not Bow” hit the charts, and the band’s flawless, high energy live performances led by frontman Benjamin Burnley solidified their position as one of the hottest touring acts of the 2000s. Though troubled by a series of widely publicized internal disputes, Breaking Benjamin pushed through the difficulties and still continues to exist in another incarnation (with Burnley still at the helm) – a true testament to the band’s intensely devoted fan base as well as to the strength of Burnley’s songwriting skills. Breaking Benjamin frequently tours with other top alt-rock and alt-metal acts like Evanescence, Godsmack, Three Days Grace and Flyleaf. Original members of the band cite ‘90s rock gods Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana as big influences.
