Breaking Benjamin/Wilson

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 8 p.m. 2017

When Breaking Benjamin singer Ben Burnley founded the hard rock band back in Wilkes-Barre back in 1999, he probably didn’t imagine the group would sustain such a lengthy career. Having weathered the rise and fall of nu-metal, a movement with which the group was loosely associated, the band continues to top the charts even as many of its musical peers have faded into obscurity. Its 2015 album, Dark Before Dawn, which was recently certified gold, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. The album’s first two singles, “Failure” and “Angels Fall,” both became No. 1 rock radio hits too. “Failure” was the most-played song at rock radio in 2015. Songs such as “Failure” and “Bury Me Alive” feature the kind of menacing vocals and heavy percussion for which Tool/A Perfect Circle is known. (Jeff Niesel)
