Breaking Benjamin will release new album ‘Dark Before Dawn’ on June 23, first single ‘Failure’ on March 23
After posting a teaser video on March 12 with only “3/23/15” to hint at some type of release, Breaking Benjamin has revealed that the new single “Failure” will arrive on that date, as well as a new album called “Dark Before Dawn” on June 23.
View the teaser below:
The Wilkes-Barre rock band’s last full album of original material, “Dear Agony,” was released in 2009 and certified gold the following year, peaking at No. 1 on the Top Hard Rock Albums and Top Rock Albums charts and No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200. “Dark Before Dawn” will be the first album to feature the new lineup that debuted in Luzerne last September, with frontman Benjamin Burnley being the only original member of the group remaining following a lengthy legal dispute.
After playing both electric and acoustic shows locally and in select cities over the past few months, Breaking Benjamin will be touring across the country this spring, with over 20 dates confirmed so far. As of now, the closest they’ll get to their hometown is the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey on May 16, just outside of Philadelphia.
