Breaking Benjamin Biography
Breaking Benjamin is an American rock band from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, formed in 1999 by lead singer and guitarist Benjamin Burnley and drummer Jeremy Hummel. The band’s first line-up included guitarist Aaron Fink and bassist Mark Klepaski, who released two albums, Saturate 2002 and We Are Not Alone 2004, before Hummel was replaced in 2005 by Chad Szeliga.
The release of a compilation album in the middle of the hiatus, Shallow Bay: The Best of Breaking Benjamin 2011, unauthorized by Burnley, caused legal disturbance within the band resulting in Fink and Klepaski being dismissed. Szeliga later, citing creative differences, announced his departure in 2013. Burnley remained the sole member of the band until the announcement of the current line-up at the end of 2014.
Despite significant line-up changes, the musical style and lyrical content of the band remained consistent, with Burnley serving since the band’s inception as the primary composer and lead vocalist. The band was commonly noted with angst-heavy lyrics, swelling choruses, and “crunching” guitars for its formulaic hard rock tendencies. The band has sold many units worldwide.

The band has sold over 7 million units with RIAA-certified platinum records, several certified singles, two gold records and has also produced one number-one song on the billboard 200.
