3 Doors Down Work With Disturbed's Producer

There were two obsessions that fueled the recording process of 3 Doors Down’s new album, Seventeen Days : the band’s obsession with hard work and Bob Seger’s obsession with hot coffee. “We finished our tour on July 31, and we wanted to get this new album out by the beginning of 2005. So we just got to it, crammed, and wrote 13 songs in 17 days. Hence the name,” bassist Todd Harrell said. “By the middle of August, we had written the album. We all get stagnant when we’re sitting at home, so why waste a lot of time?” OK,… Read more »


Disturbed Audition Bassists, Find 100 Reasons To Rage

In mid-December, Disturbed announced that original bassist Fuzz had left the band after more than six years, and posted a message on their Web site telling musicians how to apply for the vacant slot. Frontman David Draiman is currently narrowing down the field of interested players and plans to bring four to six of them to Chicago in February for tryouts. Fuzz’s departure from Disturbed was a long time coming, according to Draiman. “I don’t want to drag anyone through the mud, there were just personality conflicts,” Draiman explained, breaking over a month of silence. “It wasn’t a relationship that… Read more »


Disturbed Singer Blasts RIAA Lawsuits

Disturbed lead singer David Draiman thinks that the music industry should figure out how to distribute music on the Internet, instead of suing people who download songs. Draiman told the San Francisco Chronicle, “This is not rocket science-instead of spending all this money litigating against kids who are the people they’re trying to sell things to in the first place, they have to learn how to effectively use the Internet.” Draiman asserts that the actions taken by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) are protecting corporate profits, not artists: “For the artists, my ass…I didn’t ask them to protect… Read more »


Disturbed Demand Liberation, Frontman Urges Ozzfest Newbies To Shine

Disturbed may have learned something from their previous missteps. After their first two clips from Believewere fraught with adversity and caused controversy, the band took a rather clear-cut approach when conceptualizing the video for “Liberate.” Directed by Nathan “Karma” Cox (Linkin Park, Chevelle) and Hank Lena, the video merges backstage and on-the-road clips shot during Disturbed’s Music as a Weapon 2 Tour with performance footage taken from the trek’s finale, in the band’s hometown of Chicago. While it’s a pretty common concept as far as video treatments go, like most of the band’s themes, it’s anything but ordinary. “It’s encouraging… Read more »


Disturbed Top Billboard Albums Chart

Chicago rockers Disturbed have upset the Dixie Chicks’ three-week run as chart champs, selling more than 283,000 copies of their second album to debut atop the Billboard 200 albums chart, according to SoundScan figures released Wednesday. The riff-wielding quartet has come a long way in its short career. Disturbed’s 2000 debut, The Sickness, while eventually selling more than 2.6 million copies, took nearly two months to crack the chart after its release. What’s even more impressive is that Disturbed’s first-place showing came without an unavoidable, playlist-friendly video. The clip for the LP’s first single, “Prayer,” encountered restrictions because it was… Read more »


Disturbed Refuse To Re-Edit 'Prayer' Video For Airplay

Disturbed are so proud of their new video for “Prayer” that they’ve decided not to let the mainstream see it. Last month, major video outlets chose not to air the clip because they felt the apocalyptic content was too reminiscent of footage of September 11 (see “Disturbed Video Deemed Too Disturbing; Band Examines Plan B”). At first, the band considered re-editing the video or replacing the scenes of destruction with concert footage. In the end, Disturbed opted to stand their ground and leave the video intact and unaired despite the fact that it could have been a huge promotional tool… Read more »


Disturbed Set to Release Debut DVD

Multi-platinum Chicago-based Disturbed offer a rare glimpse of life at home, on the road and in the studio on “M.O.L.,” their debut DVD out June 4, 2002. The disc also features stunning live performance footage of “Down With The Sickness,” “Voices,” “Stupify,” “Conflict,” “Fear” and others captured during Disturbed’s 2001 “Music As A Weapon” headline tour of the U.S. last fall. Sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ Palladium and Disturbed’s hometown, Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom are featured. Disturbed have gained national prominence and worldwide attention since the release of their debut album, “The Sickness,” in March 2000. The album’s 2 million-plus sales… Read more »


Disturbed's Draiman Battles Knuckleheads, Women, Death And Makes Believe

Disturbed vocalist David Draiman has some pretty strong views about religion and art, but over the past year he’s found himself scrutinizing and re-evaluating both. He still values his Jewish heritage, but has felt the sting of its methodology. He remains dedicated to his musical career, yet has been frustrated by his inability to have a life outside of show business. These experiences, along with the overall shroud of insecurity triggered by 9/11, inform Disturbed’s upcoming record, Believe, which the band is currently working on in a Chicago studio. “All the songs revolve around the theme of belief,” Draiman said… Read more »


Disturbed Get Over The Sickness And Start New Album

With a platinum debut album on their resume, Chicago nü-metal powerhouse Disturbed could have hired almost anyone to produce their second disc. Instead, they returned to Johnny K, who worked on the band’s 2000 LP, The Sickness. Disturbed entered the K’s Groovemaster Studios in Chicago last weekend to begin recording their second album, Believe, which is scheduled for release in September, the band’s publicist said. The record will include “Prayer,” which the band premiered on last year’s Ozzfest, and about 10 other songs that were mostly written since November. Once the album is completed, knob-twisting guru Andy Wallace (System of… Read more »
