Background and Release
- Japanese Bonus Tracks
After this album was released, Breaking Benjamin went on hiatus for a couple of reasons. First, Benjamin Burnley was struggling with lung cancer and deep depression. And the second, and biggest, reason, is because Aaron Fink and Mark Klepaski were fired and sued for allowing a cover of Blow Me Away to be made without consulting the rest of the band. After the lawsuits were completely done, Benjamin Burnley then had to find three new members of the band, so they could make a comeback in 2015. In addition, drummer Chad Szeliga left the band due to creative differences.
