The legendary annual rock bash Power 104’s Powerball returns this April to the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton. Multi-platinum headliners Breaking Benjamin and Asking Alexandria will be joined by The Wild! and Diamante at this year’s event, happening on Saturday, April 13th.
Breaking Benjamin’s self-produced sixth studio album, Ember debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 in late April, selling over 241,000 albums to date. Ember is the multiplatinum band’s fourth top 5 debut on the Billboard Top 200, following 2015’s #1 debut for Dark Before Dawn (Gold), 2009’s Dear Agony (Platinum) which debuted #4 and 2006’s Phobia (Platinum) which debuted #2. Ember has already spun off two #1 hits at Active Rock Radio with the band’s recent single, “Torn In Two” granting the band their 9th #1 song.
Asking Alexandria have earned a place among the most streamed, downloaded, watched, and altogether listened to bands in a generation, combining the innovation of modern active rock with the traditional attitude of the culture’s trailblazers. Asking Anthems “The Final Episode” and “Not the American Average” were both certified gold by the RIAA for single sales in excess of 500,000 each.
Made with producer Matt Good, Asking Alexandria’s self-titled fifth album is a celebration of acceptance, of the strength of diversity and the freedom of “leaning into the crazy” (as Worsnop puts it), instead of struggling for conformity.
With The Wild and Diamante.
Tickets start at $52.50.
