Disturbed is back and louder than ever with their latest album "Divisive," which was released last November. The nu metal band has been dominating the charts for the past 25 years, and their newest release is no exception, with producer Drew Fulk at the helm.
In support of their album, Disturbed will be embarking on their "Take Back Your Life" tour, their first full tour since 2018. The tour, produced by Live Nation, will feature Theory of a Deadman in Canada and special guests Breaking Benjamin and Jinjer in select markets in the United States.
Frontman David Draiman and guitarist Dan Donegan have shared their thoughts on the current state of society and how music can be a unifying force. Draiman noted that "partisan tribal warfare has become a part of our regular existence nowadays," and Donegan added that "we can still play songs to unite people, and it's a pretty powerful feeling."
The album's lead single "Hey You" spread like wildfire across airwaves, emerging as Disturbed's 15th No. 1 single at rock radio. "Bad Man," "Don't Tell Me," and "Won't Back Down" also rank among the band's heaviest tracks, while "Unstoppable" is Draiman's pick for the record's signature fight song.
"Divisive" is unquestionably another major victory for Disturbed, who has consistently produced chart-topping rock hits since their debut album "The Sickness" in 2000. With five consecutive No. 1 debuts on the Billboard 200, Disturbed has cemented their place in rock history, occupying rarified air alongside Metallica.
The future still looks bright for Disturbed, with Donegan declaring that "we have a lot left in us," and Draiman adding that "we're always going to need an outlet for our personal sanity." As the band prepares for their upcoming tour, fans can expect nothing less than pure, unadulterated rock energy from these masters of the craft.
