For the first time ever, Breaking Benjamin will be hitting the high seas and playing a music cruise. On the heels of their latest album Dark Before Dawn topping the Billboard album chart, it has been announced they will headline the Axes & Anchors cruise next February.

“Breaking Benjamin is the perfect headliner for our festival that already includes Flyleaf, Motionless in White, Thousand Foot Krutch, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie MalmsteenMichael Schenker and several other notable artists and bands,” says Axes & Anchors co-owner Ann Squire. “Our lineup lives up to our promise -- the first ever guitar-dominated music cruise -- and is diverse enough to give Axes & Anchors something for everyone.”

Other artists on the cruise include Alex Skolnick (Testament), Adelitas Way, Tracii Guns, Mike Orlando, Dario Lorina, Aranda and more. One of the things that makes Axes & Anchors unique is the addition of private music lessons and workshops on various music-related topics from guitar and vocals to concert photography along with the live shows.

The five-day/four-night cruise sets sail from Miami Feb. 20 on the Carnival Victory with stops in Key West and Nassau, Bahamas before returning to Miami on Feb. 24. For all the details on how to reserve cabins on the cruise, go to the Axes & Anchors official site.
