Hollywood Records has announced a Greatest Hits collection titled Shallow Bay: The Best of Breaking Benjamin from their multi-platinum rock band Breaking Benjamin to be released on August 16, 2011. 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. A remixed version of "Blow Me Away," the lead track from the two-disc set, features the soaring vocals of Syd Duran of the band Valora and is already heating up the rock radio charts. The song is available for fans on iTunes now. The songs on Shallow Bay are culled from the band's catalog: 2002's Saturate, 2004's We Are Not Alone, 2006's Phobia, and 2009's Dear Agony. The second two We Are Not Alone and Phobia yielded spectacular results with each being certified Platinum. We Are Not Alone spawned a pair of No. 1 radio hits ("So Cold" and "Sooner Or Later") and sold 2.3 million units (albums and digital tracks). Phobia debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200, hit No. 1 on the Rock Album Chart and was one of the top 50 selling rock albums of 2006. It featured one No. 1 and two Top Five rock radio hits ("Breath," "Diary of Jane" and "Until The End") and sold 2.8 million units (albums and digital tracks). 2009's Dear Agony debuted #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart on one of the busiest release days of the year and #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. Dear Agony also spun off a #1 song at Active Rock with "I Will Not Bow" where it stayed #1 for five weeks straight. Over the past decade Breaking Benjamin has amassed a sizeable and loyal diehard fan base both through their music as well as their electrifying live performances. For those fans, old and new alike, Shallow Bay will be a must-have collection.

    This isn't a Greatest Hits, like someone commented earlier, it's their only hits. I love Breaking Benjamin, but this is just sad. Their record company is pathetic. If it was a greatest hits, "Forget It", "Shallow Bay", and "Follow" should be on it. But that's just my opinion.

    So what you're saying is, this "Greatest Hits" collection is TITLED "Shallow Bay" but....the song Shallow Bay won't be on it. Way to go...It may be best for them to go independent. Their label seems to wanna rape them.

    They don't have a good relationship with their label. The whole reason that ben doesn't sing skin when they play it live is because the label forced them to release it as a single.

    This sucks...I want this dude to get better. I saw BB under news and for a split second thought they were announcing a new album. Such a good band. 2012 they need to tour with Chevelle...Just sayin'

They're plenty of bands that have released greatest hits albums that are still running strong. Papa Roach, Godsmack, Foo Fighters, Creed, Korn, Incubus, Megadeth, Sevendust, etc. just to name a few. And greatest hits albums usually aren't the bands doing and more of the record company trying to use their rights to the songs to make a few extra bucks. I understand what you're saying, but compare those bands' material prior to their Greatest Hits compilations to their material that followed them. Then, reconsider your statement.
    Well, that's a matter of opinion but Sevendust and Foo Fighters just released some of their best material lately and both have been released after their Greatest Hits albums (and Godsmack didn't do too shabby with The Oracle either). Some bands get better and some get worse over their career and Greatest Hits albums have little to do with that.

    I love the band, but this is more of an "Only Hits" than a "Greatest Hits"

    I saw these guys back in 2010 and they were awesome, there is no way this band will break up. I agree with most of the track listing except they are missing "Had Enough".

    Not gonna lie. I think they're doing this because they haven't toured or recorded a new album in a while. I don't blame 'em though, I just hope Ben gets better and stays better.

    Are they just going to put every song they've done out in a five disc set? Because they've never done a horrible song. This'll be cool for the acoustic and unreleased, though. I usually hate 'best of' records, but this seems worth it for the extras.

    guess Breaking Benjamin is done for :'(
    Ben is the band, he writes it all, and the articles states he's not retiring
