NEW ALBUM EVOLUTION OUT OCTOBER 19
Two-time GRAMMY® nominated rock band Disturbed are giving fans another sneak preview of their much-anticipated new album Evolution (Reprise Records) with the release of A Reason To Fight and its stunning Matt Mahurin-directed (U2, Metallica) companion video . WATCH HERE.
Mahurin also directed the video for Disturbed’s GRAMMY® nominated rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence, a clip that has amassed over 429 million YouTube views to date.
“The message behind A Reason To Fight is a personal one,” says Disturbed lead vocalist David Draiman. “We’ve all seen people that we care about fall victim to addiction. Dan (Donegan, Disturbed’s guitarist) sent me a rough idea for the song and it hit home particularly hard.”
“I know people who’ve battled addiction and have seen it in their face—the shame they have—feeling they’ve let themselves and others down,” says Donegan. “We wanted to write a song with a positive message for people in that situation to stay hopeful and not give up the fight, as challenging as it may be. It’s an everyday struggle, but there can also be a light at the end of the tunnel.”
Adds Draiman, “The chorus goes, ‘When the demon that’s inside you is ready to begin and it feels like it’s a battle that you can never win, when you’re aching for the fire and begging for your sin. When there’s nothing left inside, there’s still a reason to fight.’ Hopefully, it’s a message that resonates.”
A Reason To Fight follows the release of lead single Are You Ready, Click HERE to see the Roboshobo-directed video, which has racked up more than 4.1 million YouTube views in just a few short weeks.
The new album Evolution makes good on the promise of its title. Disturbed unwaveringly cling to the uncompromising spirit that solidified them as a history-making force, while boldly progressing at the same time. Reteaming with Immortalized producer Kevin Churko behind the board at the Hideout in Las Vegas, Disturbed retain their signature thunderous grooves and hypnotic heaviness as they further refine their ambitious melodies and penchant for progression, spanning the gamut of their potential.
