On Friday afternoon, Breaking Benjamin released the fourth single, 'Psycho', from their highly-anticipated upcoming album Ember coming out April 13th on Hollywood Records. The track hits hard and heavy just like the previous tracks we have heard so far and the fan reaction has certainly been positive. The song starts off with a heavy, groovy riff that feeds off of a pounding rhythm section to guide the guitars in the mix. The bass tone in particular certainly builds off of heavier tones that were audible in Dark Before Dawn comparatively to previous records. Of course what is a Breaking Benjamin song without a swooning and melodic chorus? The vocal strength of Benjamin Burnley is on full display in this chorus, which I'm sure we will hear legions of fans screaming during their tour with Five Finger Death Punch this summer. While this record was rumored to be heavier than the past effort, it certainly seems to be the case based on the first batch of songs we have heard off of Ember. Keep posted for the latest news on Ember as we are only 16 short days away from hearing the record in it's entirety!
Be sure to checkout Breaking Benjamin on tour this Spring and Summer as they hit the festival circuit and support the new record.
