Disturbed Tour Heading to Huntington

Updated 1 year ago

DISTURBED will hit the road again this Fall with a North American tour featuring special guests Chevelle and Nothing More.

Formed in Chicago in 1996, the multi-platinum DisturbedDavid 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. Immortalized marked the end of the group’s 4-year hiatus and became their fifth consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, a rare feat achieve by only one other hard rock band in the history of the chart: Metallica. 

 

Disturbed’s current single, their haunting take on the Simon & Garfunkel classic “The Sound of Silence” is #1 rock song on iTunes and has been in the Top 10 iTunes video chart for over a month, alongside the likes of Adele and Taylor Swift. The stunning black-and-white video has now surpassed 12 million views on YouTube, and the song is rapidly making its way to the top of the Rock Radio chart, following in the footsteps of recent No. 1 singles “The Vengeful One” and “The Light.” 

CHEVELLE

One of rock music's most prolific bands, Chevelle, formed in 1995 and has since sold over four million albums in the United States.  The band's first studio album, Point #1, was released on a small record label called Squint Entertainment. Chevelle's second album, Wonder What's Next (October 8, 2002), was certified Platinum by the RIAA after a debut at No. 14 on the United States albums chart, Billboard 200. This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) (September 21, 2004), the band's third album debuted at No. 8 and has been certified Gold. Chevelle has since released a fourth album, Vena Sera (April 3, 2007), a fifth album, Sci-Fi Crimes, (August 31, 2009), and a sixth album Hats Off to the Bull (December 6, 2011). Their seventh album, La Gárgola, was released on April 1, 2014. Their eighth album, The North Corridor, was released on July 8, 2016. Other releases from Chevelle include two live albums, DVDs and a compilation of band favorites.

 

Hailing from San Antonio, NOTHING MORE is a four-headed musical hydra that runs on frenetic passion, unswerving DIY spirit and relentless sonic experimentation. Part schizoid System Of A Down weird-isms, part Mars Volta-esque prog rock freak out, part effortless pop nous, they seamlessly barrel from churning headbang to skyscraping chorus and back again in the blink of an eye. Capable of bombastic bounce that hits as hard as an uppercut to the jaw when they fancy it, the band is equally able to dial down their bluster into deft moments of crystalline beauty when the mood takes them. It's a gut-punching blend made all the more powerful by a keen lyrical sophistication and philosophical undertone which both belies their years and marks them out from their contemporaries. 

 

Artist Direct goes to the heart of NOTHING MORE'S appeal "(NOTHING MORE) indisputably stand out from their peers, yet they can enjoy mass consumption and unanimous radio play because they write intricately irresistible songs.  The trick is they find that delicate balance between technical grandiosity and catchy palatability.  That's why they're so important to rock music right now.  They're crucial to its future and how it flourishes in the same way that Tool, Deftones, and At the Drive-In were upon first debuting. 

Simply put, we need Nothing More."
