Burnley:

“This album is a celebration of our incredible fans; for those who have been there since hearing ‘So Cold‘ for the first time in 2004, and the new ones who have joined us on this amazing journey along the way. We’ve always shared a unique emotional connection to our music with our fans, and this album attributes to those dark times and euphoric ones. From wherever you joined along the road to Aurora, this one is for you. Thank you.”

Sturm:

“I love the mystical kind of lyrics that a thousand different people can sing and each person feels like it was written just for them and what they are going through. This is the magic of Breaking Benjamin songs that I love. Ben asked me to sing on this acoustic version of ‘Dear Agony‘ at a time when singing the lyrics sliced through me in a deeply prophetic way. It was a revelatory and healing experience. I’m so thankful.”

Ward:

“I’m very honored and blessed to be a part of such a beautiful song and project. Ben’s writing has had a special place in our hearts for many years. Thankful to be a part of this.”

Gontier:

“Ben asked me to be a part of this record, and of course I said yes. We’ve been close friends for over 20 years, and Breaking Benjamin has been a big influence on me over the years. I’m REALLY stoked that Ben and I have finally found a way to get our voices on a track together. Also, ‘Dance With the Devil‘ is one of my favorite songs by anyone. Ever.”

Chamberlain:

“Touring with Breaking Benjamin was not only one of my favorite tours we’ve done in years but we also left the tour with life long friends. Being asked to sing on ‘Red Cold River‘ was very flattering and a complete honor. I love these guys as musicians and as people, I’m honored to be a small part of their journey.”

Barnes:

“I was honored to be a part of Breaking Benjamin’s new acoustic record along side so many other amazing singers – can’t wait to hear the whole thing!”

Underoath, Ex-Flyleaf, Ex-Three Days Grace, Etc. Members To Guest On Breaking Benjamin’s New Acoustic Album

It looks like Breaking Benjamin’s upcoming acoustic album will feature a number of special guests. During an interview with HardDrive Radio, Benjamin Burnley confirmed that the effort will include guest vocals from Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath), Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf), Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace), and Michael Barnes (Red).

Burnley said the following about the acoustic tracks:

“They all have orchestration on ’em — like, full orchestra on ’em. And then there’s four that have guest vocalists that [are] really, really amazing. They did so good. I have Lacey Sturm — she used to be the singer for Flyleaf — she’s doing a song with me called ‘Dear Agony‘… She was great. She nailed it, man. And she’s so fun to work with, too. She just nails it every time. And she’s such an incredible singer. So she did that.

And then Spencer from Underoath did ‘Red Cold River‘. And then Adam Gontier, the original singer for Three Days Grace, he did a song called ‘Dance With The Devil‘ with me. And then Mike, the singer for Red, did ‘Failure‘ with me.”

He also added:

“[They’re] all are friends of mine. So I just was, like, ‘How can we put some more of an original spin on this so it’s not just a remake of things? So that’s what I came up with. And I tried to get a couple of more too, but it was a time thing. These guys, more so than anything, they’re my friends. So that’s what’s cool about it to me — that they’re my friends on a record with me.”
