This past January, BREAKING BENJAMIN released "Aurora", a collection of reimagined versions of the band's biggest and most popular songs and one new song, "Far Away", featuring Scooter Ward from COLD. "Aurora" also includes special guests Lacey Sturm (ex-FLYLEAF), Michael Barnes (RED) and Spencer Chamberlain (UNDEROATH), to name a few.
Speaking about "Aurora", BREAKING BENJAMIN's founder/frontman Ben Burnley had this to say: "'Aurora' is a collection of some of our fans' favorite songs as well as ours. We wanted to take songs that mean something important to them and re-imagine them with new life."
He also directly addressed BREAKING BENJAMIN's fanbase, saying: "We hope 'Aurora' brings you nostalgia from when you first felt something listening to our music, in a new way. Whether it was a tenebrous or a bright time in your life, we hope you look back at that point in your life and realize you made it through.
"Thank you for joining us on the road to 'Aurora'. We have a long way to go."
