Breaking Benjamin was formed in Pennsylvania in 1999 after vocalist Benjamin Burnley moved temporarily to California where he met drummer Jeremy Hummel, then returned home. They began gaining local recognition after a nearby DJ put the song “Polyamorous” in heavy rotation on the radio, and by 2002 they had signed to Hollywood Records.
Their debut album Satisfy was released later that year, and although it wasn’t a huge commercial success, it gave the band a good head start. When they released its follow-up We are not alone two years later they broke the Top 20 Billboard 200and then its successor Phobia (2006) peaked at No. 2.
After releasing another album, Dear Agony in 2009, Breaking Benjamin went on hiatus due to disagreements between Burnley and the other members of the band. He returned with a brand new squad in 2014 and the response could not have been more triumphant – their 2015 record Dark Before Dawn gave them their first No. 1, selling 135,000 pure albums in its first week.
Ember is the last album Breaking Benjamin released which was released in 2018 and the world has seen a lot of change since then. So head below to vote for your favorite Breaking Benjamin album, then listen in Loudwire nights next Monday at 19 ET to find out which record was in effect. During tonight’s show, you will find out which one Nickelback album was voted the best, and heard three songs from the winner.
