Breaking Benjamin is an American rock band from Wilkes-Barre‚ Pennsylvania‚ currently consisting of Benjamin Burnley and Chad Szeliga. The band has released four studio albums to date and a greatest hits album that was released on August 16‚ 2011. The group initially went on indefinite hiatus due to frontman Benjamin Burnley's recurring illnesses and inability to tour in mid-2010. Further complications arose in August 2011‚ when it was revealed that members Mark Klepaski and Aaron Fink had been fired from the band.
Breaking Benjamin has sold over five million albums in the US alone.
In 1998‚ Burnley and former lead guitarist Aaron Fink‚ got together (along with Nick Hoover and Chris Lightcap) and started the band Breaking Benjamin. Eventually Burnley wanted to try something different and went out to California to try some new material. Ben Burnley soon moved back to Pennsylvania and started a band called Plan 9 with drummer Jeremy Hummel. Originally the band was a 3-piece. The lineup consisted of Burnley on vocals and guitar‚ Hummel on drums‚ and Jason Davoli on bass. Plan 9 would occasionally open for Lifer at home shows. During one show‚ Burnley said "Thank you‚ we're Breaking Benjamin"‚ and thus reclaiming the name from 1998.
Breaking Benjamin's musical style has been labeled as alternative metal‚ post-grunge‚and alternative rock.
