Jonesboro, AR--- One of mainstream rock’s most popular bands, Breaking Benjamin is coming to The Convocation Center Monday, February 29 at 7:30 p.m. This Pennsylvania quintet combines hard rock, post-grunge, and alternative metal. Opening for the Breaking Benjamin is “cinematic rock” band Starset.
Six years have passed since BREAKING BENJAMIN released their last album—2009’s Dear Agony—but one listen to their new album, Dark Before Dawn, and it becomes clear that time away from the music world hasn’t caused them to lose a step. Upon release, Dark Before Dawn debuted #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart, a first for the multi-platinum band, while their first single “Failure” spent 8 consecutive weeks at #1 at rock radio. The band’s sound is noticeably more invigorated, energetic, and purposeful than ever and marks a new era as founder/frontman, Ben Burnley, worked with guitarists Jasen Rauch (RED) and Keith Wallen (Adelitas Way), bassist Aaron Bruch and drummer Shaun Foist (Picture Me Broken.) The result is simultaneously vintage BREAKING BENJAMIN and yet decisively more cohesive.
Over the past decade BREAKING BENJAMIN has achieved worldwide success through their chart-topping music, their electrifying live performances and in the process amassed a sizeable and diehard fan base (over 5.7 million likes on Facebook, 220,000+ followers on Twitter.) And, it’s the fans that ultimately fuels Burnley. “The band has always really been about the fans to me,” says Burnley. “That’s who comes first to me, and that’s what it’s all about. There’s nothing that matters any more than that to me, and so I’m just happy I’m able to give them the best they can possibly get.”
Dark Before Dawn has already spawned a Top 10 rock radio hit with “Failure” and the full album will be released June 23rd.
Opening act Starset is a stylistically ambitious rock band from Columbus, Ohio formed by Dustin Bates, best known as the lead singer with the group Downplay. Their debut album Transmissions was released in 2013.
Tickets for the show will go on-sale on Friday, December 4 at 10:00 a.m. They can be purchased in person at the Central Box Office, by phone at 870-972-2781 or 800-745-3000 or online at Tickets.AState.edu or Ticketmaster.com.
