    It's about time! I wasn't incredibly pleased with Phobia. I suppose it was the hype of "Diary Of Jane" that I didn't like. Either way, I've been fans of these guys since 2002 or 2003. I can't wait.

    I'm curious about it. I loved We are Not Alone, but couldn't stand Phobia, and hopefully this goes back into the earlier sounds.

    I liked We Are not Alone a lot, but i didn't like Phobia much at all. Hopefully this is better.

    BREAKING BENJAMIN ROCKS!! they are so much more than what people give them credit for. although they are not super shredders or riffers, they make some very interesting songs and vocal melodies.

    wtf? i definetely wouldn't call breaking benjamin a "radio brand band". if fact i have never heard them on the radio before.

    It's a shame that BB is a good band in a crappy genre and get a ton of flack for that. I'm really looking forward to this album.

    Can't wait, i've enjoyed all three albums equally. You do always know what your gonna get with BB but at least the music is always solid.

    I just hope it brings them back from the blandness of Phobia... First two albums were amazing.

    BB are good. all of their albums have been good so far, if not maybe a little repetitive sounding. but awesome all the same

    Baritone guitars aren't cheap, though. Checked.

    digging the album title and can't wait to hear the single. BB fan since Saturate
    PapaDelicious
    yeah. phobia was kind of mediocre, I feel. It's still better than the clone crap put out by hinder/saving abel/etc. I've been a fan since we are not alone, and I hope they take the direction back that way instead of trying too hard to be mainstream. I'll definitely be getting it though, keep on rockin'

    That's awesome! And whats ironic is that I just played a song on itunes by them today and it was first time I listened to them in like 2 years.

    Bout time. Excited to see what it will sound like. Every album has been different so far. Interested to see what kind of direction it will take.

    lol was it really necessary to mention Bruce Willis? Anyway I'm looking forward to hearing the single
    FoxBox
    Well, I'll probably take a listen. For those of you who seem to hate their newer stuff, how bout listening to it as if you've never listened to their other works then.
    greggsovereasy
    this is gonna be awesome! their first two albums blew my mind, and phobia definitely grows on ya.
    btw, their cover of "who wants to live forever" is the shit!!
    how right you are, good sir. only queen cover i've actually enjoyed.
    dawoodman619
    ah... saturate. that was a good album. so was we are not alone. phobia was kinda boo boo at first then i started to like it more. hopefully this one will be worth the wait. btw, their cover of "who wants to live forever" is the shit!!
    IbanezRG2EX1
    eh covin, i think ur wrong, if u have listened to what their producer had to say about this new album.. we might see some saturate comeback here

    That is a major pain in the ass...since phobia is my favorite album and my favorite songs are on that one. Anyways...I hope that they go on tour w/ Three Days Grace again because that was the best show I have seen besides seeing Alter Bridge finally after a long freakin wait. Cant wait for the new album I'll be getting it the day it comes out!

    Phobia blew; they now sound like any other generic radio brand band. "Dear Agony" doesn't give me any hope that they will return to form or find a new outlet of actual expression. Shame.

    Finally, I know its only been the usual 3 years since the last album, but it has seemed longer
