Disturbed are out with the video to their new single ‘Indestructible’, the third release and title track off the Chicago, Illinois rock band’s fourth studio album, out now on Reprise Records. Watch it via YouTube below.
Disturbed posted an excerpt from their European press conference on June 5th at the Sweden Rock Festival, where singer David Draiman talked about the difference between their fans and the metal scene in Europe and North America. “The biggest is that it’s bigger here,” David said. “A lot bigger. There’s also a huge difference in energy I think in European crowds in general.” Watch the clip below.
Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman wrote to MTV’s Headbanger’s Blog to throw some cold water on the feud with Disturbed over his original observation to Beat magazine that Disturbed rehearse on-stage poses. “I was asked in an interview about whether or not we practice our stage show based on the fact that we are so active. I simply said no, and that I once saw Disturbed sound check in London when we were playing the smaller club attached to the venue that they were playing the same night,” Weinman writes. “I think our room was 1000 people and their room was like 2,000 people. They were practicing where they would stand and pose and stuff. I was just differentiating what we do and what they do. We don’t do that. Big deal. Considering how the information was presented to them, I don’t blame them for being a little pissed. But to imply that we need to be taught a lesson from them about how it works in the big time is ridiculous.”

Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan responded to Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman’s remark that Disturbed rehearse their on-stage poses, calling the critique “jealousy” from a band who plays smaller venues on a smaller stage, DEP has returned serve in a blog posting at their MySpace page. “The guitar player Dom Deluise or whatever his name is with the little peen complex from that band Disturbia or whatever they’re called thinks that we care about them,” they write in a lengthy posting. “Old news, but still funny. Check it. ‘My Ferrari is better than your Honda!!! Our stages come apart and travel with us and yours don’t!!! We have thirty guitar techs and you have one!’. Coooool self esteem barometer douchebag. Wait…what’s that I hear? The sound of your band still sucking? Oh, right. Gotcha there, bud.” The entire post at MySpace has since been removed.
Weinman probably hit a soft spot with Donegan, given his prior history with the hair metal band Vandal, as exposed in photos posted by Metal Sludge.
Disturbed frontman David Draiman was on WEBN radio in Cincinnati, where the DJ talked him in to doing his impersonation of legendary baseball announcer Harry Carey. Watch it below.
Footage of Disturbed inviting a soldier from Cincinnati backstage before their show at Bogart’s on May 14th has been posted online at the band’s YouTube channel. The guy had just returned from Iraq during the prior month and presented the band with an American flag, while the band returned the favor with a pair of drumsticks, several guitar picks, and a bass pick.

Disturbed are out with an alternate version of their ‘Inside The Fire’ video, with the controversial and MTV unfriendly storyline about suicide. The song is the lead single off the Chicago alternative metal band’s fourth studio album ‘Indestructible’, out June 3rd on Reprise Records. Watch it below the fold.
Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman spoke with Australia’s Beat magazine about how astonished the band was after seeing Disturbed soundchecking before a show in England. Weinman said that the Chicago rockers were “practicing where they were going to walk and when they were going to put their leg up on the monitor and pose. That was weird for us. There are times where I don’t even know where I am.”
Regarding that on-stage mayhem, Weinman said, “We’ve always been a band that has an element of unpredictability. At the same time, there’s a lot of people who think our music is just noise. But everything we do has a purpose and has a meaning.”
