Breaking Benjamin’s ‘I Will Not Bow’ Reaches Double Platinum Certification
Looks like Breaking Benjamin will have to clear some space on their wall of accomplishments as one of their tracks just reached the double platinum sales plateau. "I Will Not Bow" was recently certified for moving two million units in the U.S.
The song becomes the second track in the band's career to accomplish such a feat, following on the heels of "The Diary of Jane." Even though the song was released in 2009, it didn't surpass the million mark until November of 2015, which means there has been a surge in popularity for the cut over the last two years. The could have something to do with Breaking Benjamin re-emerging on the music scene in 2015 after a lengthy court battle over the rights to the band's name.
"I Will Not Bow" was the lead single off the band's 2009 Dear Agony album, the band's last disc to feature Aaron Fink, Mark Klepaski and Chad Szeliga. As stated, after a court battle over the name, frontman Ben Burnley re-emerged with a new lineup and achieved great success with the 2015 album Dark Before Dawn.
In addition to the double platinum "I Will Not Bow" and "The Diary of Jane," "So Cold" and "Breath" are the other two Breaking Benjamin songs to have reached at least platinum certifications.
After playing some shows in late spring, Breaking Benjamin are getting a well deserved breather this summer. However, the band will fire back up in August and September, playing shows in Europe with Starset. See all of their scheduled dates here.
