Breaking Benjamin Vocalist Fires Two Members of His Band Via Email

Total Assault

Breaking Benjamin vocalist-guitarist Benjamin Burnley has fired the rest of his band.

According to a story in Citizen’s Voice of Wilkes-Barre [the band’s hometown], Burnley axed guitarist Aaron Fincke and bassist Mark Klepaski via email after learning his bandmates had struck an agreement with Hollywood Records to issue a remix of their song ‘Blow Me Away.’
Burnley is seeking at least $250,000 and the exclusive right to the Breaking Benjamin name. Fincke and Klepaski both deny Burney’s claims and a Luzerne County judge has ordered arbitration. So far no one from the band’s camp has issued an official statement on the recent events.

Breaking Benjamin formed in 1998 in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. and signed with Hollywood Records in early 2002. They have gone on to release four studio albums that have sold well over 5 million copies in the US alone.

Breaking Benjamin on selling out

On August 16th the band will be issuing a hits collection titled ‘Shallow Bay: The Best of Breaking Benjamin.’ 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 remixed version of ‘Blow Me Away,’ the lead track from the two-disc set that caused the rift, features guest vocals from Syd Duran of the band Valora.
