Hyro The Hero Premieres Video For New Song “We Believe” Featuring Disturbed’s David Draiman

Hyro The Hero has premiered a new single titled “We Believe.” This track features Disturbed’s David Draiman and an official video for it can be found below:

Hyro said the following about the song:

“It’s actually about hope. We all have decisions to make. Everybody pulls you one way or the other. You have to pick the lesser of two evils in all situations. Personally, I’m trying to find a way. I can’t believe I’m rapping on a song with David, but I really can’t believe I’m singing a song with him. It’s a special moment, because I tried something new with my voice.”

Draiman added:

“I’m incredibly honored. Hyro is a truly amazing artist and I had a blast working with him. This track is exactly what the world needs right now. It’s time to believe again.”

With so much going on in a year like 2020 I wanted to create a song of hope and triumph in these dark times. This song is the light at the end of the tunnel. I shall bring fire Friday 9/25…”

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

Saul Collaborate With Disturbed’s David Draiman On New Song “King Of Misery”

Saul have premiered a new song titled “King Of Misery.“ This track was co-written by Disturbed’s David Draiman and it will appear on the band’s new album “Rise As Equals,” which will be released on October 23.

Vocalist Blake Bedsaul said the following about the song:

“‘King Of Misery‘ is a track that we hope all people can relate to at some point in their lives. It’s about being aware that your life is spiraling out of control and warning everyone around you that if they stay, you’ll only drag them down with you. We are the rulers of our own domain but there are certain life lessons that you can only learn in the struggle. At that point, we all become the ‘King Of Misery.’”

He also had the following to say about working with Draiman:

“It was a very unique experience being able to write a song with someone as influential as David Draiman. His humble and down-to-earth nature made it such a comfortable experience. It wasn’t ideal having writing sessions over Zoom. But we definitely made it work. We knew we wanted to write a song that once you heard it, it would give you an emotional concussion. ‘King Of Misery‘ is a blast into reality that most people don’t want to face and spend years running from.”

Draiman commented as well:

“These guys were a pleasure to work with, as they are talented, dedicated, diligent, and already armed with an arsenal of hooks. I was honored to be able to contribute.”

Bedsaul also added the following about the new record:

“‘Rise As Equals‘ is the full embodiment of all the trials and tribulations we face as a band, fathers, sons, brothers, and humans. We write about everything from our biggest fears in songs like ‘Looking To Fight‘ and ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes‘, while the title track is an ode to the wonderful men and women that make up our amazing fan base known as ‘The Equals‘.”

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.”

Serj Tankian On Viral Video Of People Rocking Out To System Of A Down At A Nigerian Wedding Reception: “Simply Awesome”

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.”
