Disturbed is touring in support of their massive #1 album Immortalized, which marked the end of the Grammy-nominated group’s 4-year hiatus and became their fifth consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, a rare feat achieved by only one other hard rock band in the history of the chart: Metallica. The album has already boasted two huge No. 1 Active Rock singles in “The Vengeful One” and “The Light,” and now the group’s haunting version of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic “The Sound of Silence” is poised to continue the dominance. WatASCEND ch the powerful video for Disturbed’s “The Sound of Silence”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4 The track, which Yahoo! describes as “incredible” and “striking,” is already climbing the charts and has now earned over 7 million YouTube views in just a few short weeks. Ahead of their co-headlining run with Rob Zombie, Disturbed are gearing up to kick off their first tour following their 4-year hiatus, starting in the U.S. in Fargo, ND on February 10 and taking them on an almost entirely sold out run through North America to headlining slots at major festivals across the U.S., U.K., and Europe. Formed in Chicago in 1996, the multi-platinum Disturbed – David Draiman [vocals], Dan Donegan [guitar], Mike Wengren [drums], and John Moyer [bass] – have sold over 15 million albums globally and scored eleven No. 1 singles at Active Rock Radio. Their quadruple-platinum 2000 debut The Sickness formally announced their arrival as hard rock leaders, with that status solidified by their subsequent Grammy Award nomination as well as gold-, platinum- and double platinum-certified records.
As a rock legend and filmmaker with a unique vision, Rob Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film. His sixth solo studio album, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispensor, will be released April 29 via UMe/T-Boy Records and has been named as one of Rolling Stone’s “Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2016.” The Electric Warlock… marks Rob Zombie’s first solo studio album since 2013’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, which debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200. Produced by Zeuss and recorded at Goathouse studios, this new record is a full return to form by Zombie, featuring John 5 (Guitar), Piggy D (Bass) and Ginger Fish (Drums) with provocative art provided by Alex Horley. To celebrate the release of the album, Zombie has made a direct-to-fan presale available on FuckinginaUFO.com where fans can pre-order the new record and collectible merchandise, as well as purchase exclusive tickets and VIP Meet & Greet bundles for the new tour and a chance to be in The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser movie. Rob Zombie’s seventh feature film, the highly anticipated 31, will also be making its world premiere this month at Sundance Film Festival.
