Disturbed Premiere Video For Their Cover Of Sting’s “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You”

Disturbed have premiered a new video for their cover of Sting‘s “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You.” The band said the following about the track:

“We have loved this song for a long time, and even though it was released in 1993, it seems strangely applicable to today’s world. The song is about losing faith, and might initially sound pessimistic, but it’s about the importance and power of personal relationships, and how they can save you and provide solace in an increasingly confusing world.”

Disturbed To Release Cover Of Sting’s “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You” This Week

My Chemical Romance, Slipknot, Tool, Guns N’ Roses, Etc. Received Pandemic Assistance Loans

Earlier this year, the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Treasury launched the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to give loans to businesses to help them pay their employees amid the coronavirus pandemic. According to a new report, $660 billion was given out to 600,000 companies including ones owned by Slipknot, Green Day, Tool, My Chemical Romance, Guns N’ Roses, Disturbed, Eagles, Nickelback, Papa Roach, Pearl Jam, Weezer, Cheap Trick, and more. One of the aforementioned artists, My Chemical Romance, told Rolling Stone the following about their decision to take a PPP loan:

“Like most tours that were happening this year, My Chemical Romance’s world tour was cancelled. MCR received PPP money to ensure their crew is funded in these times of uncertainty until we are able to be out on the road again. We are so grateful to these skilled, dedicated people – some of them are parents, others caretakers, still others who simply have rent to pay – and this money helps them take care of themselves and their families.”

Disturbed To Release 20th Anniversary Vinyl Edition Of “The Sickness”

Disturbed Working On New Music

It looks like Disturbed have been working on new music during their coronavirus downtime. David Draiman confirmed the news during a recent interview with Download Festival TV.

Draiman said the following:

“…I’m just messing around a little bit with music here and there — nothing crazy. [I’ve been] having conversations with the other guys in Disturbed about getting some new material going, and we’ve got some stuff in its infancy. One song, definitely, that’s killer in our back pocket; we just haven’t tracked it. And we’ve got a few more song ideas, [but] nothing that’s been hashed out enough.”

The frontman also added that there are some downsides to working remotely:

“We kind of need to get back into the rhythm of being able to do stuff like this in Zoom format or online as opposed to in person. At least it’s some kind of real-time connection so that you can be creating together improvisationally to an extent, but there’s still issues with audio — it’s not as clear as you want it sometimes, there’s too much compression and you lose level; it’s a challenge — and the vibe isn’t there. There’s nothing that replaces you being in front of your co-songwriter and being able to feed off each other’s energy and create in person.”

Disturbed Postpone “The Sickness” 20th Anniversary Tour

Disturbed have postponed their “The Sickness” 20th anniversary tour with Staind and Bad Wolves due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek is now being rescheduled for summer 2021.

Disturbed commented:

“Hello Disturbed Ones! We hope you and your families are all doing well during this crazy time.

We have waited as long as we possibly could to finalize the plans for our 20th Anniversary of The Sickness summer tour. We had hoped that there would be some clear direction and guidelines on how mass gatherings would be conducted this summer. Unfortunately, that clarity has not come and out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to RESCHEDULE for Next Summer. We are working to get these dates rescheduled and look forward to sharing an update soon.

At the time the dates are rescheduled, refund options will become available, for further details visit LiveNation.com/refund. Thank you for understanding. Please stay safe and we can’t wait to rock.

David, Dan, Mike and John“

David Draiman Says Disturbed Aren’t Playing “The Sickness” In Full On Upcoming 20th Anniversary Tour

During a recent interview with Billboard, David Draiman confirmed that Disturbed won’t be performing “The Sickness” in full on their upcoming 20th anniversary tour. The frontman said the following:

“We won’t do the entire album, but we’re going to do a ton of Sickness material, deeper cuts, stuff people haven’t heard us play off the record for a while, and definitely a huge portion of material will be Sickness-oriented. You can’t, unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on how you look at it — as a band at our level, at this point of our career, you can’t just go out and play one record because everybody came on board at different stations. They want to hear what they fell in love with. There’s definitely new production elements that we’re toying with, that are elements that we’ve maybe used during The Sickness era, but that we’re doing in a new and more provocative way. That’s about all I can say.”
