Breaking Benjamin, Pennsylvania's sensational alternative metal artists are bringing their electrifying sounds to Paradise Rock Club!
Breaking Benjamin was formed in Wilkes-Barre (Pennsylvania) in 1999 by lead singer and rhythm guitarist Benjamin Burnley and drummer Jeremy Hummel. The band got its name when Benjamin broke a microphone he had borrowed, prompting its owner to say, “Thanks to Benjamin for breaking my f***ing mic.” The band’s initial line-up consisted of Benjamin, Jeremy, lead guitarist Aaron Fink, and bassist Mark Klepaski but there have been numerous changes over the years. The current line-up is Benjamin (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jasen Rauch (lead guitar, electronic strings, programming), Keith Wallen (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Aaron Bruch (bass, backing vocals), and Shaun Foist (drums, electronic percussion, programming). Despite all the line-up changes, the band has been consistent with its musical style, lyrics, and has become renowned for its blend of hard rock with angst-heavy lyrics, swelling choruses, and distortion guitars. They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums (2 of which have achieved Platinum status in the US), 1 compilation album, 10 music videos, 3 EPs, and 16 singles (1 of which went double Platinum in the US). Their latest album (Dark Before Dawn) hit #1 on the US Billboard 200 chart and on the Canadian Albums chart.
