Disturbed have sold 11 million albums and 6 million digital tracks worldwide, and have scored eight No. 1 singles at Active Rock radio over the course of their career. Disturbed are currently in the studio recording their new CD entitled "Asylum," which will be released by Reprise Records in late summer. The group's last studio album, the platinum self-produced "Indestructible," debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart in June 2008 and remained in the top 10 for five weeks. "Indestructible" is the band's third consecutive No. 1 album, following their platinum-sellers "Believe" (2002) and "Ten Thousand Fists" (2005), making Disturbed one of only six rock bands in history to score three consecutive No. 1 debuts with studio albums.
"We are truly looking forward to being part of a lineup this strong," says Disturbed's David Draiman. "It's always good to tour with friends." In 2008, the song "Inside the Fire" was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Hard Rock Performance category for the 2009 award show and is the longest running No. 1 single in history at Active Rock Radio.
