Breaking Benjamin

The song is the first leader from the band's album 'Ember.'

Breaking Benjamin returns to No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, ruling the Sept. 22-dated list with "Torn in Two."

The song, the second single from the band's former Top Rock Albums leader Ember, rises 2-1 to become Breaking Benjamin's sixth Mainstream Rock Songs No. 1.

It's also the band's fourth leader on the list in just over three years, continuing a hot streak that began with "Failure" (for nine weeks, beginning May 23, 2015) and continued with "Angels Fall" (four weeks, Nov. 7, 2015) and "Never Again" (two weeks, April 1, 2017).

Ember's previous single, "Red Cold River," peaked at No. 2 in March, blocked by the five-week reign of Three Days Grace's "The Mountain." This time, Breaking Benjamin takes over the top spot from Three Days Grace, whose "Infra-Red" falls to No. 2 after becoming the band's record-breaking 14th No. 1.

On the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, "Torn" rises 20-17, a new peak, up 14 percent to 4.4 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.

Ember, Breaking Benjamin's sixth studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts dated April 28 with 88,000 equivalent album units earned.
