PENTICTON - Multi-platinum headliners Breaking Benjamin and Asking Alexandria will be joined by The Wild! and Diamante at this year’s annual Powerball rock bash at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Saturday, April 13.

Breaking Benjamin’s sixth studio album, Ember, debuted at number 3 on the Billboard Top 200 last April, and has sold almost a quarter million albums to date, according to a events centre media release. The album has produced two number one hits including Torn in Two, which has become the band’s ninth number one song.

Asking Alexandria is considered one of the most streamed, downloaded, watched and listened to bands of the generation, combining modern active rock with more traditional notes, the release states. The band has had two certified gold singles in “The Final Episode” and “Not the American Average” for sales in excess of a half million each.

The Wild add a new dimension to rock and roll, "driven by long, hard nights, the love of playing music, rural roots, and a no bull mentality.”

“Anybody who’s ever been told to turn it down, clean it up or go home lives inside of what the God Damn Wild Boys are all about,” the release says.

Diamante had a breakout year with her debut album Coming in Hot, which features her latest single Haunted. She has also been featured on Bad Wolves latest single Hear Me Now, which was included in Billboard’s 2018 year end hot rock songs chart.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. online at www.ValleyFirstTix.com. Ticket prices are $52.50 and $62.50.
