Breaking Benjamin to Issue Greatest Hits Collection This August
Modern rock heroes Breaking Benjamin will be issuing a hits collection titled 'Shallow Bay: The Best of Breaking Benjamin' on August 16, 2011. The two-disc release will feature the band's chart-topping hits including 'Breath, 'So Cold,' 'Sooner or Later,' 'The Diary of Jane" and 'I Will Not Bow,' as well as an entire disc of rare recordings including never-before-released songs, live performances, rare acoustic recordings and remixes.
The songs on 'Shallow Bay' are culled from the band's catalog: 2002's 'Saturate,' 2004's 'We Are Not Alone,' 2006's 'Phobia,' and 2009's 'Dear Agony.' The second two-'We Are Not Alone' and 'Phobia'-yielded spectacular results with each being certified Platinum. 'We Are Not Alone' spawned a pair of No. 1 radio hits ['So Cold' and 'Sooner or Later'] and sold 2.3 million units. 'Phobia' debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200, hit No. 1 on the Rock Album Chart and was one of the top 50 selling rock albums of 2006. 2009's 'Dear Agony' debuted #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart on one of the busiest release days of the year and #1 on the 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.
A remixed version of 'Blow Me Away,' the lead track from the two-disc set, features the soaring vocals of Syd Duran of the band Valora and is already heating up the rock radio charts. The song is available for fans on iTunes now.
