Hard rockers Breaking Benjamin have announced that they’ll be extending North American 2016 tour dates with opening band Starset. The new shows are scheduled to begin on February 29, 2016 in Arkansas and extend into April. They’ll be hitting such states as Texas, California, Oregon, and many more. Pennsylvania natives Breaking Benjamin, named after founder and lead singer Ben Burnley, play a brand of metal-tinged alternative rock that came to define the sound of mainstream rock in the early 2000s. Indebted equally to the minor-chord dirges of first-wave grunge rockers like Alice in Chains and the pyrotechnic bombast of vintage arena rock, Breaking Benjamin became one of the most popular rock bands in the United States, scoring a number one with the single “Breath” in 2007. Two of their albums, 2004’s We Are Not Alone and 2006’s Phobia, have been certified platinum in the U.S.
