Best news of the week...possibly the month...possibly the year. I apologize b/c there are a few Disturbed fans on here. My apologies to you...
DISTURBED singer David Draiman has commented on persistent rumors that the band will call it quits once it completes its South American tour in August.
Asked by a fan via Twitter if it's true that DISTURBED might break up, Draiman replied earlier today (Friday, July 22), "We don't know what we're doing yet. All I can tell you is that we will be gone for quite a while."
Draiman told an Idaho radio station on July 13 that the band will not headline a sixth "Music As A Weapon" tour in 2012 — and is not sure what its plans for the future are. In the interview with Boise's KQXR, Draiman said, "We don't know what we're doing . . . This is gonna be the last tour that the American people get to see us in for awhile, if not indefinitely. We have some things going on internally, we have some personal things going on. So I don't know. It's hard to tell . . . But you're not gonna see a DISTURBED tour for awhile."
Draiman did not elaborate on what "personal" or "internal" issues the band was dealing with.
I'm really hoping this happens. I don't wish anything bad towards the band as far as their "personal" / "internal" issues go but god enough is enough already. I have a feeling they will go the SOAD way, maybe somebody does a couple solo albums, they will be shit and nobody will like them, then 4-5 years they get back together, do a huge festival and we are stuck w/ Disturbed again. Just a guess.
