Breaking Benjamin reformed in 2014 after a four-year hiatus following singer-guitarist Benjamin Burnley's legal dispute with former members Aaron Fincke and Mark Klepaski. The band released their fifth studio album Dark Before Dawn in June 2015. Their 2004 sophomore album We Are Not Alone spawned the singles "So Cold" and "Sooner or Later." Breaking Benjamin's other hits include the songs "The Diary of Jane," "Breath," "I Will Not Bow" and "Failure."
In October 2014, Breaking Benjamin headlined the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg. The group's 2007 concert at Lehigh University's Stabler Arena in Bethlehem was recorded and released as a live DVD companion to their 2006 studio effort Phobia.
Offerman is best known for his portrayal of mustachioed man's man Ron Swanson on the former NBC television series Parks and Recreation. The veteran actor-comedian also lent his voice to The Lego Movie (as the pirate Metalbeard) and starred in the 2014 Netflix stand-up film Nick Offerman: American Ham.
Mullally in 2009 landed a recurring guest role on Parks as Swanson's sex-crazed, manipulative ex-wife Tammy Two. Prior to that, Mullally portrayed on the hit series Will & Grace.
