Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) Premieres “Fractured” Video

Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) has premiered a new video for his song “Fractured.” This track is from his recently released solo album “This World Or The Next.” Wallen said the following about the song:

“‘Fractured‘ is about pouring your adoration into someone you love or someone you look up to, but all they do is leave you feeling disappointed. You wish they could be different, but there’s no changing or fixing the way a person is, they have to want to change for themselves. Until they do, your wounds will remain open.”

Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) Premieres “Dream Away” Video

Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) has premiered a new video for his recently released solo song “Dream Away.“ He told Loudwire Nights the following about the track:

“I think that we’ve all had kind of a tough year with everything happening in the world — COVID and everything. A lot of us were kind of left to our own devices for better for worse in our houses quarantining, so you’re kind of sitting their thinking, ‘Man, how do we get out of this? How do I escape this frame of mind?’ A lot of it was just bad news everyday for a while there and it was tough to take.”
