Breaking Benjamin releases its sixth studio album, Ember, on Friday (April 13th). The follow-up to 2015’s Dark Before Dawn already features one Number One rock radio track in “Red Cold River.” The band has also unveiled a video for “Torn In Two,” with the clip serving as the second part of a trilogy in which a father goes through living hell when his daughter is murdered and what he endures to save her soul.

Frontman and founder Ben Burnley told us a while back that he’s a perfectionist when it comes to making new music: “I’d say every song that I write, I lose a little bit more hair (laughs). You know, it is a stressful thing, but you have a standard that you put yourself through being the singer, the songwriter and the performer all in one, and you have to be a little bit of a perfectionist. I think every musician is like that. I don’t know anybody that’s really not.”
Breaking Benjamin will kick off a spring headlining tour on April 25th in Richmond, Virginia that runs through the third weekend in May, when the band will hit the Rock on the Range lineup in Columbus, Ohio. The headline shows will also feature support from veteran rockers 10 Years.
Fans who purchase any pair of tickets to the spring dates will receive a redemption for a free physical version of Ember.
Following the spring run, the band will kick off a co-headlining summer tour with Five Finger Death Punch and special guests Nothing More and Bad Wolves on July 21st in Salt Lake City.

Breaking Benjamin will donate 25 cents from each ticket sold on the summer tour to Prevent Child Abuse America. Burnley said about the initiative, “Since April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we wanted to do something to bring awareness to that as well as encourage others to do their part in helping the innocent voices of the future.”
