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, so the band is returning... albeit with a completely new lineup, as Chad Szeliga announced just a few days later that he would no longer be working with Breaking Benjamin due to "creative differences."

The band released their fifth record ''Dark Before Dawn'' on June 23, 2015.

* 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.

* GameBreakingInjury: Ben Burnley's Wernicke's encephalitis (aka Wet Brain Syndrome) combined with his lung infection became one for the band. Without Ben being forced to go on hiatus, it's very unlikely that the events that caused Ben to part ways with the rest of his members actually ever happened.

* NotChristianRock: The song "Give me a sign" is close to a prayer but otherwise the band isn't labelled as Christian.
