Breaking Benjamin Discography

Saturate

«Saturate» – is the debut studio album by the band Breaking Benjamin. It was released on August 27, 2002 in North America and April 21, 2006 in Europe through Hollywood Records. The album contains the singles “Polyamorous”, “Skin” and “Medicate”.

There was a dispute between the band and the studio about deciding what songs they wanted to release as singles. The band was inclined for his song “Medicate”, while the studio insisted on the release of “Skin” as a single. Over time, the band decided to go with “Skin”, although there were some negative comments with the band and the rather little success that it achieved. The original version of Saturate contained “Forever” as a separate track, while the new improved versions came with the music video of “Polyamorous” and finally featured the inlay of the song “Shallow Bay”. The title of the album is derived from a letter in the song, “Wish I May”. On September 14, 2002, Saturate peaked on the Billboard 200 and Heatseekers charts at # 136 and # 2, respectively.

There were also plans for a European release of the album that contained the song “Lady Bug” and Depeche Mode’s cover of “Enjoy the Silence”, but Saturate was never released in Europe, and as a result, no track was released for Saturate. “Lady Bug” later appeared on her EP So Cold, and on her greatest hits album Shallow Bay: The Best Of Breaking Benjamin. “Enjoy the Silence” also appeared on the compilation album.

Dark Before Dawn

Dark Before Dawn – It is the fifth album of the alternative metal band American Breaking Benjamin. It will be the band’s fifth studio album, and the first to present a completely different lineup along with founder and vocalist Benjamin Burnley. Produced and composed by Burnley, the album took shape at the end of the hiatus and was mostly written before the new lineup “even played a single note altogether.” The recording process was carried out after a personal study by Burnley in the same studio where Phobia was recorded (2006) was recorded, with all the members of the band performing their respective instruments, including background voices made by guitarist Keith Wallen and bassist Aaron Bruch, making the record his first to present voices other than Burnley’s. The album was a critical and public success. Reception was mostly positive, many critics praising the album remains faithful to the group’s established sound, although others criticized it for sounding too similar to the previous material. Burnley describes that he did not want to “reinvent the wheel with the album.” He debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, first in his group catalog, selling 141,000 units in his first week, so it’s the sales effort so far. The album’s most successful single is “Failure” which was announced along with the album on March 18, 2015.
