Breaking Benjamin with Starset at The Tabernacle

Breaking Benjamin and Starset played to a sold-out crowd at the Tabernacle on Thursday, Feb 18.  The opening act, Starset, was amazing to watch.  Dustin Bates (lead vocals), Ron DeChant (bass), Brock Richards (guitar) and Adam Gilbert (drums) held true to the scientific and political themes of the album “Transmissions,” hypnotizing the crowd with their incredible, cinematic rock style a la robotic suits. 

After a brief stage change, it was time for Breaking Benjamin's performance.  Lead vocalist Benjamin Burnley, accompanied by Keith Wallen (rhythm guitar), Shaun Foist (drums), Aaron Bruch (bass) and Jasen Rauch (lead guitar), took the crowd back in time to the early 2000s, opening with their hit songs “So Cold” and “Follow.”

Breaking Benjamin went into hiatus in 2010 in light of legal issues with former band members in addition to continuing health issues suffered by Burnley. It was thought that the band had broken up and would not be making a return. These rumors were dismissed in the latter part of 2014 when Burnley announced the reformation of the band and the future release of a new album. On June 23, the album “Dark Before Dawn” was released with incredible fan support and record-setting success.

Throughout the evening, Burnley continuously gave thanks and praise to the fans.  Look out world, Breaking Benjamin is back and better than ever!
