As promised, Breaking Benjamin have released their new single this morning, “Failure,” their first new track since going on hiatus, along with further details about their upcoming full-length album.

The Wilkes-Barre-based rock band’s last album of original material, “Dear Agony,” was released in 2009, so fans have eagerly anticipated new music, and from the sound of “Failure,” it seems they’re picking up right where they left off despite the lineup changes that debuted in Luzerne last September, with frontman Benjamin Burnley being the only original member of the group remaining following a lengthy legal dispute.

Those who pre-order the new full-length album, “Dark Before Dawn,” will receive “Failure” instantly. The official album cover and track list have also been revealed today:

“Dark Before Dawn” track list:

1. “Dark”
2. “Failure”
3. “Angels Fall”
4. “Breaking the Silence”
5. “Hollow”
6. “Close to Heaven”
7. “Bury Me Alive”
8. “Never Again”
9. “The Great Divide”
10. “Ashes of Eden”
11. “Defeated”
12. “Dawn”

The band is gearing up for a full tour this spring after playing scattered sets of shows, both electric and acoustic, since September. The closest they’ll get to Northeastern Pennsylvania is the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey on May 16, just outside of Philadelphia.
