BREAKING BENJAMIN have been creating new material for over a year now

The band’s guitarist Jasen Rauch recently sat down with Grand Rapids, Michigan radio station 97.9 WGRD and discussed BREAKING BENJAMIN‘s follow-up to their 2018 LP “Ember”.

Rauch said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “We are working on music. We’ve been writing for quite a while. And regardless of whether we were able to record anything or not, we’ve been writing for a little over a year, I would say. We kind of keep the bar pretty high for ourselves as far as the standard moving forward. We’ve been experimenting with some things, throwing some things out, started over a couple of times, and are getting to a place where we’re pretty happy.

“So, yeah, we’ve been in the studio,” he continued. “We did some in Nashville. We’ve done a lot of stuff remotely. Ben [BREAKING BENJAMIN frontman Benjamin Burnley] and I have dozens and dozens of voice memos going back, ‘Hey, try this. Try this.’ And we’ll record something and send it back and forth. But, yeah, we’re looking forward to it. And hopefully we’ll have something out soon for everybody to hear.”

The members of BREAKING BENJAMIN are no strangers to the upper echelons of the rock charts. Since bursting on to the scene with 2002’s “Saturate”, the band has amassed an impressive string of mainstream rock radio hits, with 10 songs hitting No. 1, numerous platinum and multi-platinum songs and albums, billions of combined streams worldwide and a social imprint of over 6.5 million — a testament to the band’s global influence and loyal fan base. Their most recent release, “Aurora”, gave BREAKING BENJAMIN their tenth No. 1 song at rock radio with “Far Away ft. Scooter Ward”.

The band are currently on a U.S. headlining tour with BUSH and ANOTHER DAY DAWNS.
