About Breaking Benjamin

Multi-platinum rock band Breaking Benjamin has amassed a sizable and diehard fan base over the years both through their chart-topping music and electrifying live performances. The band’s latest release, AURORA adds to a healthy 7MM+ total album units sold worldwide, following 2018’s EMBER, which charted #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 and spun off the band’s 8th and 9th #1 singles to date. Showcasing nine re-imagined hits from across their catalog and one new single, “Far Away”, AURORA features fan favorites such as RIAA Certified Gold singles, “Failure” and “Dear Agony”, along with #1 songs like “Angels Fall” and “Red Cold River” and more. Stream or purchase AURORA here, and check out the band’s site here. Watch the official music video for “Far Away” here.

New Album and Tour

Breaking Benjamin just released the album Aurora! It is an acoustic collection of their biggest and most popular songs... and one new song called, "Far Away"

You can download/stream Aurora here

Battle Concert Rares Shop

The event is free for everyone to play but if you want to get your gauntlets on the HOTTEST gear in the stadium, talk to Johnny Track for the Battle Concert Rares Shop. 

Battle to Unlock New Concert Reward Gear
