Breaking Benjamin, meanwhile, have also announced plans to launch their new album titled Aurora on January 24.

The record will feature reimagined acoustic versions of some of their best-loved tracks and feature contributions from Cold’s Lacey Sturm and Scooter Ward, Adam Gontier and Michael Barnes of Red and Underoath’s Spencer Chamberlain.

Frontman Benjamin Burnley says: “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.”

Aurora is currently available to pre-order direct from Breaking Benjamin’s website (opens in new tab).
