NEW ALBUM ‘ASYLUM’ TO BE RELEASED AUGUST 31, 2010 ON REPRISE RECORDS
Grammy nominated, multi-platinum hard rock band Disturbed is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a special gift to fans: a documentary entitled Decade of Disturbed. Starting August 26th, five days before the release of their new album Asylum, Decade of Disturbed will play on the big screen in movie theaters in 13 cities across the country. Decade of Disturbed will be also included with every purchase of Asylum.
The 75 + minute film, directed by Rafa Alcantara of TWENTYFOURCORE Productions, candidly captures the band’s ten-year history, with extensive behind the scenes and never before seen footage. “It basically tells the story of the band, from its inception to present day, says front man David Draiman. “The band has had its share of ups and downs along the way and I think we tried to be as open and honest about all of it as we could. It’s very insightful and we hope its something the fans will appreciate.” Full preview screening information can be found at www.disturbed1.com or http://cinemapurgatorio.com/movies/decade-of-disturbed.
The first single off Asylum, “Another Way to Die,” is a #1 hit at Active Rock Radio. This is the highest Billboard Active Rock debut in Disturbed’s history and the fastest # 1 for the band on Billboard’s Active Rock chart, getting to #1 in just 4 weeks. It is also the fastest # 1 on Billboard’s Active Rock chart in over 3 years and is the band’s 7th # 1 single on Billboard’s Active Rock chart: they are tied with Metallica for the 3rd most #1′s on the Active Rock chart.
On August 17th the Chicago four-piece will hit the road to headline the first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, which runs through October 4th. Also on the bill are Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour, Halestorm, and Hell Yeah. Tickets for UPROAR are on sale now. Please visit http://www.rockstaruproar.com for details.

After debuting their new line up to a sold-out audience in New York this past May and then traveling to Europe to devastate the masses with shows in 16 different countries in 80 days (including two shows opening for AC/DC), Germany’s legendary metal band ACCEPT will return to tour the U.S. for the first time in 14 years on a co-headlining tour with King’s X. Their first show will kick-off the eleventh annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta.
Guitarist & songwriter Wolf Hoffman checks in about the band’s time in Germany & their upcoming North American trek:
“Believe me, this was boot camp, but we loved every minute of it! Twelve months ago, there was nothing on the horizon that would have made us believe we would be on the stages of the world again as ACCEPT… and here we are! [New lead vocalist] Mark Tornillo inspires us to get it all out in a way we have not been challenged before. We can’t wait to be on stage with him!!!! He is the new kid on the block and he is the reason we are back again. It is such a relief, such vitamin shot!!! And if we could, we would never stop!!!”….
When asked what has surprised the band the most about their fans, Hoffman responds enthusiastically:
“NO DOUBT ABOUT IT – the biggest surprise is the way they make us feel welcomed. Of course we hoped the fans would be happy to have us back – who would not believe that about their fans? - but, what is happening here, EVERYWHERE we go, is a TOTAL KNOCK-OUT for us. WE HAVE NOT SEEN FANS SO HAPPY IN A LONG, LONG TIME.”
