Disturbed Officially Cancel “The Sickness” 20th Anniversary Tour With Staind & Bad Wolves

Disturbed have officially cancelled their “The Sickness” 20th anniversary tour with Staind and Bad Wolves due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“Disturbed Ones – It is with great disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour dates that were rescheduled for this summer. We, like all of you, were very much looking forward to rocking out together again, after a year’s delay. We’ve waited to see if we could play the shows and by now, we had hoped there would be more clarity and a clearer direction as how to make this possible. Unfortunately, as the tour takes us to different cities and states with a variety of unclear restrictions, it becomes unfeasible to move forward. We felt waiting any longer and canceling last minute, especially after you all have waited this long, would be unfair. For those who purchased tickets, there is nothing further you need to do – refunds will automatically be issued at your point of purchase. We want to thank all our fans for your wonderful support, and we look forward to the time when we can all be together.”

The band commented:

“A few weeks ago Thomas Jensen of Wacken Open Air challenged us to cover metal songs of his and finally your choice, in an acoustical manner. We accepted the challenge, worked the songs out in a short period of time and are happy that we can make the work and love we put into this available for you on all digital platforms from now on!…”

The deal will also include access to the publishing firm’s marketing team and publishing infrastructure. Robert Dippold, partner and president, digital strategy for Primary Wave Music Publishing, said the following about that:

“Over the past twenty years, Disturbed’s genre-defining music has broken down barriers with their iconic sound, instantly-recognizable melodies and uncanny ability to reimagine songs with an aggressive swagger all their own. The band has done a tremendous job building a rabid community and brand around their music, as evidenced by their five consecutive number one albums and sold out world tours. We are thrilled to welcome them to our family and cannot wait to jump in and do what we do best — build upon their legacy and continue to position Disturbed as one of the premiere hard rock acts.”

David Draiman Says Disturbed’s New Music Will Be “Blisteringly Angry”

During a recent interview with Loudwire, David Draiman talked a bit about his plans for new Disturbed music.

“It was fun, I love doing that kind of stuff. And we’ll do it again at some point, but I’ll tell you — the thing I am dying to do is not a cover. I’m dying to sink my teeth into some new, original, angry, ferocious, brutal material. I’ve had enough.”

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.”

“Next Friday I’ll be releasing my NEW SINGLE We Believe ft David Draiman of @disturbed So excited to release new music to y’all and all my hard work over the years has led up to rocking a new song with a #legend. 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.”
