Breaking Benjamin Has ‘A Lot Of Music Recorded’ For New Album
Breaking Benjamin guitarist Keith Wallen was recently interviewed on Redlands, California radio station’s 96.7 KCAL-FM‘s program “Wired In The Empire” and talked about working on new music, “One hundred percent, yeah. We’ve always been kind of writing and kind of chronicling some ideas over the past few years — through the pandemic, all that stuff, we’ve always been writing. But here recently it started to pick up a little bit. So I’m hoping — hoping — there’s gonna be some new music out sometime within the next year. That’s a nice, safe answer. I could say month, I could say two months, but I’m gonna say year, just ’cause it’s been so long. I don’t wanna screw ourselves somehow; I don’t know.”
Wallen said there’s lots of new material ready to go! “We’ve got some stuff in the works,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of music recorded. Ben (singer Benjamin Burnley) just posted yesterday — he just tracked some vocals for a song. So, yeah, we’re getting there. We move at our own pace here, much to the dismay of a lot of people, I’ve noticed, online.
As for the music? “It’s awesome. It’s exciting. And man, I can’t wait to get it out there finally.”
As you know, Breaking Benjamin has had a string of mainstream radio hits; 10 songs have hit #1, they’ve had numerous platinum and multi-platinum songs and albums, billions of streams worldwide and a social imprint of over 6.5 million.
The band’s 2018 album, “Ember”, debuted #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and marked the multiplatinum band’s fourth Top 5 debut.
Do you think the new Breaking Benjamin album will debut Top5 in Billboard’s Top 200?
