Shinedown + Breaking Benjamin

Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin are cooking up some co-headline fun. The tour launches in Wichita and includes stops in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Nashville, Salt Lake City and Peoria. Presales and general onsales start this week.

This isn’t necessarily your big-city tour.  Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin are targeting many secondary markets on this run, such as Bozeman, Mont., Kennewick, Wash., and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Shinedown is touring in support of its fifth studio album – Threat To Survival – dropping Sept. 18.  Already tearing up the charts is the disc’s first single – “Cut The Cord.”

Breaking Benjamin is also at No. 5.  The group’s fifth studio effort, Dark Before Dawn, arrived in June on Hollywood Records.  Singles include “Defeated,” “Angels Fall,” and “Failure.”
