Everyone has a phobia and BREAKING BENJAMIN shared theirs on August 8 when they released PHOBIA on Hollywood Records. It´s the much-anticipated follow-up to their explosive platinum 2004 album WE ARE NOT ALONE, which produced a pair of compelling #1 rock hits, ´So Cold´ and ´Sooner Or Later.´
The radio single ´The Diary Of Jane´ is a song that impressively builds on BREAKING BENJAMIN´s mix of hard-charging rock, sharp hooks and soaring vocals. The band--BEN BURNLEY, vocals/guitar; AARON FINK, guitar; MARKUS JAMES, bass; CHAD SZELIGA, drums-- rejoined forces with producer David Bendeth, who did the same honors for We Are Not Alone. The goal was to make a solid, mature and cohesive record, not just a few singles and filler, says bassist MARKUS. We had some time to live with the songs and as a result the album is much more thought-out. Ive never felt this strong about any album. This was our second time working with David so everything was a lot smoother this time around. Weve all gotten a lot better at our craft and we knew we needed to take it to a higher level."
