Breaking Benjamin has announced the details of a fall U.S. acoustic tour that will begin on September 29th in Boston and wind its way through the country before coming to a stop on November 7th in Cleveland. Pre-sale tickets are already available, while sales to the general public will begin on Friday (September 8th) at 10:00 a.m. local time. More info can be found at the band’s website.

Breaking Benjamin has toured relentlessly behind its 2015 comeback album, Dark Before Dawn, and frontman Ben Burnley spoke not long ago, saying he’s been thrilled with the response the band has received: “The fans have just been absolutely incredible, and the venues that we’ve been playing and all the cities that we’ve gone have just been absolutely warming and welcoming to us and we’re just nothing but grateful as usual, you know. We’re nothing without these amazing people we get to play for, so it’s just an honor to be in their cities and their beautiful states and play some music and have a great night.”

  • Burnley recently revealed that the group has completed work on its sixth studio effort, saying, “The album is done, it’s finished. It just gets passed to the label and they’ll put it out whenever. On our end, we’re done.”
  • 2015’s Dark Before Dawn ended a six-year gap between records for the group and marked the recording debut of the band’s current lineup, of which Burnley remains the sole original member.
