Breaking Benjamin – Ember

Breaking Benjamin - Ember

BREAKING BENJAMIN have released their highly-anticipated sixth studio album, EMBER. The self-produced EMBER has already spun off a #1 rock radio track, “Red Cold River,” and is the follow-up to BREAKING BENJAMIN’s 2015 #1 album, Dark Before Dawn.

Additionally, BREAKING BENJAMIN have partnered with Prevent Child Abuse America donating $0.25 from each ticket sold to their summer co-headline tour with Five Finger Death Punch to the organization. As April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, founder/frontman Ben Burnley had this to say about their choice in partnering with this organization:

“I have always had a soft spot for children, especially being a father myself. We do a lot of work with St. Jude Children’s Hospital and love helping there where we can. Since April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we wanted to do something to bring awareness to that as well as encourage others to do their part in helping the innocent voices of the future. We’re pleased to be donating .25 cents of each ticket on our Summer tour to the country’s biggest foundation for child abuse awareness, ‘Prevent Child Abuse America’ so they may continue their journey to put an end to it.” – Ben Burnley

BREAKING BENJAMIN’s latest single, “Red Cold River,” has over 6MM+ streams and has already achieved #1 status on Active Rock radio, marking the band’s 8th #1 single. “Red Cold River” can be found HERE, and the music video, which has over 7MM+ views can be seen HERE.

In celebration of the release of EMBER, BREAKING BENJAMIN will do an in-store signing at Gallery of Sound (186 Mundy Street) on Saturday, April 14th from 4:00PM – 6:00PM ET in Wilkes-Barre, PA where the band famously got its start. More info available at
