In October 2002 Breaking Benjamin joined the ranks of renowned rock artists - from David Bowie, Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie to Adema, P.O.D. and Hoobastank - who have created original music for or contributed previously recorded works to video games. Among the four tracks from Saturate selected for the soundtrack to Interplay Entertainment's Run Like Hell (PlayStation2) is the group's debut single, "Polyamorous."
Breaking Benjamin
Aaron Fink and Mark James Klepaski were already in a band (Lifer) with a major label deal when they decided to depart and form a new group with a couple old friends - Ben Burnley and Jeremy Hummel from high school days. It was a bold move, but one that paid off quickly.

After gigging locally in the Wilkes-Barre, PA club circuit, Breaking Benjamin caught the wear of Freddie Fabbri, better known as DJ Freddie from modern rock station 93.7X WBSX. Fabbri not only added a demo version of "Polyamorous" to his play list, but decided to fund the recording of a five-song EP by the quartet that went on to sell 2000 copies locally.

That EP combined with airplay soon led to a couple showcase performances in March 2002. A&R; reps flocked to see the band and it didn't take long for Breaking Benjamin to ink a deal with Hollywood Records. With producer Ulrich Wild (Deftones, Powerman 5000, Static X) at the helm, the band completed its major label debut, Saturated by summer of 2002. Among the tracks included on the album was the song that started it all, "Polyamorous."
