Breaking Benjamin’s ‘Dear Agony’ Certified Gold
Dear Agony, the 4th release from multi-platinum rockers Breaking Benjamin (Ben Burnley, vocals/guitar; Aaron Fink, guitar; Mark James, bass; Chad Szeliga, drums), has been certified Gold by the RIAA, marking sales in excess of 500K. Released September 29, 2009, the CD debuted #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart on one of the busiest release days of the year and #1 iTunes Rock Album Chart. Dear Agony also spun off a #1 song at Active Rock with “I Will Not Bow” where it stayed #1 for five weeks straight. Their latest single “Give Me A Sign” was the #1 Most Added song upon release and is rapidly moving up the Active and Modern rock charts.
Recently the band took time to shoot the video for “Give Me A Sign” with acclaimed director Nigel Dick and, while singer Ben Burnley hasn’t divulged the concept, he added an element of suspense by stating that he hoped fans of the band would “recognize and be excited by the inclusion of certain key characters from the band’s past”.
Citing “the greatest fans in the world” and a heavy touring schedule for their continued success, Breaking Benjamin will embark on a headline tour that kicks off March 13 in Poughkeepsie, NY and will feature Chevelle, Red and Thousand Foot Krutch as support. Following that headline run, the band will hit the road with Nickelback April 6.
