The band had released four albums to date and were considered one of the major AlternativeMetal successes of the [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000s]], led by lead singer Ben Burnley's emotive baritone. In the summer of 2010, they went on hiatus so Ben could address his health. In August 2011, it was revealed that Ben fired Fincke and Klepaski over the planned release of a remix for "Blow Me Away" to be included on a greatest hits album. In September 2011, Szeliga was hired as the drummer for Black Label Society. In 2013, Benjamin Burnley finally won his lawsuit against Fincke and Klepaski and won the rights to the Breaking Benjamin moniker. The band returned with a completely new lineup and released their fifth record ''Dark Before Dawn'' on June 23, 2015. In October 2017, they announced their next album, ''Ember'', which is set to be released in early 2018

* ''Ember'' (2018)


Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: WordOfGod states that the upcoming album ''Ember'' will be heavier due to fan demand. A sneak preview of the song Red Cold River would seem to confirm this.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: The title of their third album, ''Phobia'', is a reference to Ben Burnley's many phobias. The most notable of which is his fear of flying as it is the reason why the band doesn't tour outside the United States and Canada.
