Breaking Benjamin hit the stage at Reading’s Santander Arena in support of Avenged Sevenfold’s “The Stage” World Tour. The band just released a new single “Red Cold River” for the first time since 2015’s “Dark Before Dawn” album. “Ember”, the bands’ new album, due out in Spring of this year will be the bands’ 6th album.
On Tuesday, the band had an audience of roughly 10,000 fans to rock to. Out of those, many were there specifically to see Breaking Benjamin. Ben sounded great on vocals and was very interactive with the crowd. The 12 song set which lasted roughly an hour covered their biggest hits off of their previous 5 albums. Fans that I observed and spoke with briefly are super excited for new music. With Ben dealing with serious illness in 2015, the future of Breaking Benjamin was uncertain for a period of time. It was great to see the guys together again and sounding just as good as ever.
