Breaking Benjamin is one of those bands that has had it’s ups and downs which included the band taking a hiatus and not seeing new music released for six years. I have to give it to the fans of this band because they waited and they made 2015’s Dark Before Dawn a huge success for the band and now the band has a brand new album entitled Ember which will be released in 2018. To keep fans satisfied until the album is officially released the band has provided us with the first single of the album in the very atmospheric track Red Cold River. While the track may be atmospheric in nature, it has some real heavy elements to it that make it a cool track to check out. Vocalist/guitarist Benjamin Burnley’s vocals on the track can go from being intense to very melodic and I loved it. The band will be going on a month long tour with Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold and Synyster Gates talked about it saying, “We’ve been friends with these guys for a long time. Bullet for My Valentine, we’re bros. We’ve been in the trenches with those guys. My god, the fact that both bands are still around blows my fucking mind. They’re the coolest dudes and obviously we’re super fans of the music and the genres make sense. Breaking Benjamin, talk about songwriting, I mean, some of the greatest songwriters of the modern era. And, obviously it’s a little heavier. So to bring a pretty unique package you got super heavy, then there’s us and whatever the fuck that is and then really super strong songwriting through that hard rock filter.” Check out the track below:
