Breaking Benjamin have shared a touching space-themed music video for their ballad ‘Ashes of Eden’

July 15, 2016

Despite tons of new rock music popping out every day in every country, it’s still rare that a beautiful yet not sickly-sweet rock ballad starts playing on the radio and win listeners’ hearts. One of the few songs of this kind is Breaking Benjamin’s ballad ‘Ashes of Eden,’ for which the band has just premiered a music video.

The visual accompaniment to ‘Ashes of Eden’ is a conceptual one, set in outer space, where a man and a woman of a space crew get separated, with one of them doomed to die. How the story ends, you’ll see from the video below yourself.

Directed by Kyle Cogen, the video was premiered via Billboard. When asked about the concept, singer Ben Burnley told that it is “sort of a modern sci-fi take on Adam and Eve”. The clip seems inspired by Gravity and Star Trek. “Probably because I’m into that kind of stuff,” admitted Burnley. “It’s probably subconsciously affected it.”

‘Ashes of Eden’ is featured on Breaking Benjamin’s latest Dark Before Dawn album, which took the band to the top of the charts last year.

Breaking Benjamin are currently touring Europe, following their North American tour leg, co-headlining the trek with Disturbed. In September, the band will embark on another co-headlining tour – this time with Korn. The tour is titled Nocturnal Underground’ and has Motionless in White and Silver Snakes as support.
