Your favorite band and mine, Breaking Benjamin, was a no show for their Atlanta appearance yesterday and has been forced to cancel the remaining shows of their tour. Some questions and rumors arose as a result of this, like if the band is breaking up, but that is not true. Here is what Ben had to say on their website about the situation:

“What?s up guys? Just wanted to fill you in on what?s going on. I regrettably had to postpone some shows, because I?m not feeling well and haven?t felt 100% since November when I left the Godsmack tour four days early. I?m a private person, and I would like to keep my personal health to myself but I wanted to go on the record and tell everyone that this is nothing drug or alcohol related. As a matter a fact I have been completely clean and sober for 7 months. I?m working on seeing the best doctors and exploring every avenue possible to fixing this. In the meantime I?d like to say, that I appreciate the support and understanding of all Breaking Benjamin fans. You all mean the world to me. It kills me inside to have to let my fans down. But please understand that I did not choose to get sick. I?m working tirelessly to getting to the bottom of this so I can do what god put me on this earth to do.

P.S. As of yet plans have not changed for future tours nor am I aware of any plans of Breaking Benjamin breaking up.

Thank you for your understanding. I hope that we can make it up to those that we missed on this recent tour.

Much love,
Ben”

Sounds like: Evans Blue and Paramore
Current Album: The Inevitability of a Strange world
Myspace: myspace.com/halifax
Official Site: www.HalifaxRock.com

Halifax has a great sound and progession from song to song. They are a fast band with alot of energy filled lyrics and guitar rifs. Their type of music makes it really hard not to just start singing at the top of your lungs. Halifax is a great band to add to your rotation of music. Their album, The Inevitability of a Strange World, is out in stores now. My favorite song off the album is Anthem For Tonight.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Red

Hometown: Nashville, TN
Genre: Rock / Progressive
Sounds like: Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin
Current Album: End of Silence
Myspace: myspace.com/dropofred
Official Site:

This band really rocks it. Their album “End of Silence” is a combination of industrial, classical and hard rock that offers a beacon of hope for an ever-growing army of fans. “End of Silence” has sold more than 100,000 copies, the band has already scored their first Grammy nomination, reached the top 10 on R&R’s active rock charts for national airplay. RED is spending 2007 attacking concert halls for over 250 shows, joining forces with hard-hitters like Flyleaf, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin and Sevendust. If I dont say so myself,they have great energy and fantastic stage presence for a new band and definitely can hold their own.

Plusminus X

Hometown: Windsor, ON
Genre: Rock
Sounds like: Shinedown, Staind, and Default
Current Album: State Of Mind
Myspace: myspace.com/plusminus
Official Site: www.plusminusx.com

Plusminus X is a fresh new sound with heavy guitars, rattling bass, classical acoustic guitar, and an aggressive edge. During live performances, the energy the music contains is evident. They have developed an excellent underground following as a result of this energy. There album State Of Mind is definitely an all play. As we reported May 10, they have recently broke up due to internal issues, but there is always hope down the road for a reunion.

My Darling Murder

Hometown: Phoenix, AZ
Genre: Hard Rock, Metal
Sounds like: Bullet For My Valentine, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle
Current Album: My Darling Murder
Myspace: myspace.com/mydarlingmurder
Official Site: mydarlingmurder.com

It’s a sad thing to hear when a band that is just starting ends too soon. In my opinion, this is how I feel with My Darling Murder. They self-titled debut album was strong, powerful, and well, together. I was very impressed when I first heard these guys and very upset to hear that they couldn’t stay together. They still have a few songs up on their myspace and you should definitely go take a listen.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Eighteen Visions

Hometown: Huntington Beach, CA
Genre: Rock, Hardrock
Sounds like: Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Def Leppard
Current Album: Eighteen Visions
Myspace: myspace.com/eighteenvisions
Official Site: eighteenvisions.com/

Eighteen Visions has been in the business for a long time now. Their music genre has spanned all across Rock ‘n Roll. Originally formed as a hardcore metal band 18V has progressed to a power rock band. I’ve heard many of the comments as 18V has changed their styles, being called sell-outs and such, but the truth of the matters is, they’re amazing musicians and will always be so. With the latest and final self titled album 18V has gone out with a bang. Recently they announced their disclosure and will pursue individual dreams. If you’re looking for a Def Leppard 2007, 18V is your band. Check out tracks such as Victim, Truth Of Consequence, and Last Night. They also have some strong ballads such as Broken Hearted and Tonightless. If you would like to listen to some of their harder music, slow progress backwards with their albums and it’ll do just that. Even though 18V has called it quits their music will live on indefinitely (and always in my CD player).
