Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2000
HOME TOWN: Pennsylvania
MEMBERS:
Ben Burnley (vocals/guitar)
Aaron Fink (guitar)
Mark James Klepaski (bass)
Chad Szeliga (drums)

Everyone has a phobia�and BREAKING BENJAMIN will share theirs August 8 when they release 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.�

PHOBIA will be launched June 6 at radio with the single �The Diary Of Jane,� 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--will shoot the video May 25 in New York City and will head out on the road in late July on a major tour (details TBA).

For PHOBIA, BREAKING BENJAMIN 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 JAMES. �We had some time to live with the songs and as a result the album is much more thought-out. I've never felt this strong about any album. This was our second time working with David so everything was a lot smoother this time around. We've all gotten a lot better at our craft and we knew we needed to take it to a higher level."
