About the band
Breaking Benjamin quietly became a mainstream rock band in the late 2000s, the quintet from Pennsylvania combining metal-edged guitars with raw, emotional lyrics to produce a versatile rock ‘n’ roll sound that transcends on the radio as well as live on stage. Led by front man Benjamin Burnley, the band came together at the dawn of the 21st century and combines influences from post-grunge and alternative metal to create a sound that has remained consistent over the years, creating five studio albums (two of which went platinum) and one greatest hits collection.
Despite significant lineup changes over the years, Breaking Benjamin‘s musical style and lyrical content has remained consistent, with Burnley serving as the primary composer and lead vocalist since the band’s inception in 1999. Breaking Benjamin has commonly been noted for its formulaic hard rock tendencies with angst-heavy lyrics, swelling choruses, and “crunching” guitars.
In the United States alone, the band has sold more than 7-million units, and yielded three RIAA-certified platinum records, two gold records, and several certified singles, including one multi-platinum, three platinum, and four gold. Breaking Benjamin has also produced one #1 record on the Billboard 200 album chart.
