|Disturbed "Immortalized" - August 21, 2015|
Earlier last month on June 23 Disturbed announced the release of their new album to be released on August 21, 2015 with the following post on their Facebook, Twitter and Website.
The Chicago metal giants are back and looks like they will be hitting the road. We are very proud to see Chicago's very own Disturbed back in action. Fans have waited a few years ... and we all understand everyone needs a little time off for their own well being."The hiatus is over. Over the past year, we’ve been secretly writing and recording a brand new album. Today, we are excited to share a new song called “the vengeful one” along with a new music video. It’s off our upcoming album called “immortalized,” which will be released on august 21, and is available for pre-order today. This album had the arduous task of, in some way, justifying the hiatus; giving the fans something that made it worth our time away from one another. We hope that it succeeds in that task. Thank you for staying with us over the years."

New Single "The Vengeful One" Is Top 5 At Rock Radio
The Grammy Award-nominated foursome announced the end of their four year hiatus last month with the launch of new single "The Vengeful One," which has already skyrocketed Top 5 at Rock Radio. The accompanying animated video was directed by award-winning filmmaker Phil Mucci. The upcoming release follows 2010's gold-certified Asylum, Disturbed's fourth consecutive #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and the group's subsequent four-year hiatus, which gave members David Draiman [vocals], Dan Donegan [guitar], Mike Wengren [drums], and John Moyer [bass] the necessary reprieve to make this imminent and deliberate return.
"For this album, everything was written in the same room," Draiman remarks. "It was wonderful experiencing how it used to be back in the day for us. That became apparent in the material, whether it was the passion of the performance, the power being harnessed, or the feelings evoked. We could feel the difference."
To push themselves further, the group headed to Las Vegas' Hideout Recordings to work alongside producer Kevin Churko [Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch]. "The goal was to find a producer we felt creatively comfortable with, but who could challenge us and spark a new evolution," said Donegan. "Churko did that."
The resulting record features the unshakable first single "The Vengeful One" - "Musically, it's got that old school metal sound," says Donegan. "It's definitely Disturbed!" - along with an outside-the-box cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence," unlike anything in the group's catalog.
Formed in Chicago in 1996, Disturbed have sold 12 million albums globally, scored nine No. 1 singles at Active Rock Radio, and had four consecutive albums debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, a feat shared only with Metallica and Dave Matthews Band. Their quadruple-platinum 2000 debut The Sickness formally announced their arrival as hard rock leaders, with that status solidified by their subsequent gold-, platinum- and double platinum-certified records as well as a Grammy Award nomination in the category of "Best Hard Rock Performance" for "Inside the Fire" in 2009.
