Breaking Benjamin Breakup Details
The alternative rockers have been torn apart by the feud which was detailed in the Citizen's Voice of Wilkes-Barre which is the band's home town. It quotes court documents which claim the row came to a head in May when Burnley gave guitarist Aaron Fincke and bassist Mark Klepaski their marching orders via email.
According to the Citizen's Voice, Burnley has accused Fincke and Klepaski of making unilateral and unauthorised decisions on behalf of the band – and specifically allowing 'Blow Me Away' to be remixed and re-recorded without his consent. It is alleged that Fincke and Klepaski approved the revised version of the song, for use on a greatest hits package, after their record company offered a $100,000 payment. But Burnley insists that neither Fincke or Klepaski or their representatives informed him, the band's lawyer or management that any offer was even made.
