Disturbed Raise Addiction & Mental Health Awareness With “A Reason To Fight” Live Video

Disturbed have premiered a new live video for “A Reason To Fight” off their latest album “Evolution.” The clip seeks to raise awareness for addiction and mental health issues.

Frontman David Draiman commented:

“Through the strength and support of our extended family, we can make a difference to those who fight this war. We must continue to be their allies, their hope, their added source of strength. We must continue to give all of them a reason to fight.”

Guitarist Dan Donegan added:

“I know people who’ve battled addiction and have seen it in their face — the shame they have — feeling they’ve let themselves and others down, We wanted to write a song with a positive message for people in that situation to stay hopeful and not give up the fight, as challenging as it may be. It’s an everyday struggle, but there can also be a light at the end of the tunnel.”

With this news, the group have also launched the “You Are Not Alone” campaign in an effort to help those who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues.
