Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan has spoken about the rumours that the band are to go on indefinite hiatus.

On the rumor that DISTURBED will break up after completing the South American tour in August:

Donegan: “What it comes down to is ever since the start of this band, we’ve always had a game plan of what comes next after each thing. So it’s always been ‘write, record, tour, let’s go home for a month, let’s start writing again, do the same thing all over again.’ So it’s always been laying out future plans. This time around, we just haven’t really gotten to those discussions yet. We know that we’re coming to the end of this touring cycle and we just haven’t planned on what we wanna do next.



“I really don’t know [if DISTURBED is breaking up]. I don’t have a clear answer because I’m not sure where everybody’s head’s at at the moment other than we’re having a great time out on tour, we’re going out big, we’re carrying big production, we wanna end this on a big note. I think we’re not ready to sit down and have the discussions of when we wanna get back together or if we’re gonna. So we’re kind of winging it.”

On DISTURBED singer David Draiman’s comment in a July 13 interview with Boise’s KQXR radio station that the band has “some things going on internally” and “some personal things going on” that may be contributing to the group’s decision to go an in definite hiatus:

Donegan: “I don’t know if he said that. That might have been taken out of context. It’s been a long marriage for us and we’re very fortunate that our career has lasted well over a decade and going strong. But like I said, this is something new to us. We’re not sure how we’re gonna feel coming off the road and not having a game plan. So it’s really hard to predict if some of us are enjoying that or if some of us are missing that. So it’s just really all gonna be a new experience for us.”

On how everyone is getting along in the band:

Donegan: “It’s different because now we all live in different states. As we got older and starting families, we’re all in different states. I’m the only one left in Chicago, and Mike [Wengren], our drummer, moved up to Milwaukee, and David moved to Austin, and John’s [Moyer, bass] from Austin. So we’re split up anyways. The only times we’re really together is when it is time to tour or if it’s time to write and record.

"No game plan"....How does everyone feel about that...I mean we all need to be realistic.Knowing it might take years for them to head back into the recording studio....if and when they come to a decision of doing just that?

There's a lot that we just don't know that's going on behind the scenes. Perhaps they just planned to not have a plan; or they just want to keep the pertinent details between themselves.

If it takes a while for them to get back into the studio, I'm willing to wait. If they decide that pursuing separate paths for a while is what they want to do, we as fans should stand behind them.

But, there's something they're definitely not telling us. For now, perhaps they should keep it that way. People are already freaking out over the break, just judging by the questions I get asked on FB and twitter. Whatever their final decision is, it's not really up to us, is it?

If people keep asking about the bands future, tell those Idiots to shut up and let Disturbed think for once after the tour then they will tell us GOD! They Need to give the guys some time to think! man I am waiting for a good answer from the guys too, but we have to wait until their touring cycle is over, this is what happened to Faith No More, and look where there at! No wonder why Faith No More quit altogether. so Raven & CrowX tell the Disturbed World that they should not treat them with lots of questions & should not Disturbed the guys to break up like Faith No More. If they do break up, that will be bad, like really bad for us fans!

i think that they want a long break and now they can do it...they want to be with their families...and the break up rumors are a move for the press i think. they let the rumors flow...to justify the hiatus and come back in like five years with more power and attention of the media...they are not having trouble between each other. thats what i think.

Plain and simple is that we don't have a need to know about every little thing that goes on behind the scenes. That's what I meant by "there's something they're definitely not tell us". If it needs to be communicated to fans, the band will say something. For now, they're going on hiatus. Let's not back them into a corner to make a statement right now. If it's been announced on MTV and the various metal music sites, then that's their answer to us. Hiatus. Well deserved rest for one of the hardest working bands in metal.

Asylum Unleashed


Loading The Weapon
Lol, they're going to concentrate on being better husbands and fathers, all they're doing by saying things the way they're saying them is to keep us being interested and keep us on our toes till they get back to work. Although they love playing and touring together, sometimes unseen forces causes stress for all involved. They deserve to live a life away from music for a while. So lets step back for a while and let them be, it's obvious that Disturbed is in a very disturbing time in their personal and professional lives.

They survived a band member going awry, and they know that can't happen again, so maybe before thing's even reach that point youve got to nip it in the butt before things turn into something dramatic. Stuff like this always happens in the music industry especially rock bands. They recognized that this is the right time to step away and get things done that they've put off or been meaning to do for a very long time.

Let us support them, send them messages, and let them know they're alive strong in all of us, inspire them to make a powerful comeback. We know that Asylum is their final record with Warner, hopefully we can get word around to the band members or their friends who were involved with the Decade of Disturbed movie and thier candid videos to make a new website that has nothing to do with WMG, that they themselves can control with fan interactions.... :)

Well at least this explains why they sucked when I saw them during Mayhem Fest. I have seen them a total of seven times in my life, and this last time was crappy in comparison to the other six times. Oh well. If it means great music down the line, so be it. If this means we never hear from them again as a band, so be it. They will always be my favorite band.

Weird, Disturbed keeps saying this is the strongest performance they have ever put on and they are more precise than ever. I'm seeing them on Aug 3 so I hope they dont suck. I saw them on uproar and they kicked ass.

This story has been rehashed on Metal Hammer, and they got a couple of things wrong...

(story here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Soooo, I get on Twitter and ask David about it. He replied a bit more calmly than he did in his "rant" the other day.


DAVIDMDRAIMAN DAVID DRAIMAN
@
@DisturbedStef YES, A FEW WRONG, BUT MOSTLY RIGHT. THE "DEMISE" OF HARD ROCK/HEAVY METAL I WAS REFERRING TO WAS THAT IT IS RELATIVELY IGNORED BY THE MEDIA IN GENERAL. IT IS STILL VERY MUCH ALIVE, AND STRONG. I BEAR WITNESS TO THAT, AS WELL AS THE 10-15,000 PEOPLE WE ARE PLAYING TO EVERY NIGHT. THE "PERSONAL" REASONS I REFERRED TO ARE OUR OWN INDIVIDUAL CREATIVE WANTS AND OPPORTUNITIES WED LIKE TO EXPLORE, THAT WE NEVER HAD TIME TO BEFORE. THE REST IS TRUE

This was a series of 4 tweets. David needs to look into a site called twitlonger.com if he wants to exceed the 140 character limit on occasion. LOL

I can't wait for my show next week! I know David and the guys will bring it all and then some! It may be the last time I see them in concert for a while, so you know I'm going to enjoy every single second with my boys that I can...!!

Stupified
I am getting so sick of the radio announcing that Disturbed is breaking up. Now everybody I know is giving me a hard time about it. RRRRRR the next person that says something to me I just wanna jack them right in the face!! Is everybody else expieriencing this also? Everybody here knows how big of a fan I am and when this gets announced people hear what they want and start throwing the shit my way! Until I hear from the band that they have decided to be no more (which I don't see happening) I will patiently await the next album

They're announcing a breakup on the radio?! Sheesh, don't they keep up with the latest news? That's what I try to do when I'm on the air...



Until there is an OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT that they are, indeed, breaking up, I will patiently (as patiently as possible) wait for a new album. If David hasn't said it, then what they're saying on your local radio station is just a RUMOR!

Give me facts, not rumors or speculation.

David says they've re-signed for at least one more record with Warner.

For all we know that could just be the B-side collection.

EDIT: David confirmed that it is in fact a new record they're signed on for.

As I was walking to class yesterday, a woman noticed my disturbed shirt and asked "are you dissapointed that Disturbed is breaking up?" I told her they werent breaking up and it is only a hiatus, and they are signed with Warner for another record in the future. I'm happy that I could provide this info to her, but it still shows that alot of people still believe Disturbed is breaking up. Even at Mayhem Fest, I over heard the frontman from Suicide Silence saying "this is Disturbed's last tour ever, give them a huge fuck yeah!"

I've been having to correct people with that too. I remember when the break up rumor was rampant. I talked with my mother in law about it on the trip to and from St. Louis. I took encouragement in David telling us at the end of the show, "Hope we see you again when it's about 20 degrees cooler", because if was fucking hot that night. I was wearing a Disturbed shirt and I was drenched in sweat from head to toe. I was sweating out the gel in my hair it was so hot.

I took that as they have every intention of coming back at some point, they just don't know when yet. I really wish people would read the Revolver article and stop making assumptions because they're only making asses of themselves.

Exactly, I went to the Charlotte Uproar show, and the Raliegh Mayhem show and Disturbed said both times "We will see you soon. Peace"

Yeah I wish Disturbed had a game plan to stay for a little while longer, but like Metallica they took a good two year break after their Self-titled Album in 1991, we will see Disturbed Return big time, only time will tell folks! I'm glad i met them at last years Uproar in Utah before this news broke out them going to take a break for a long time, to the guys in Disturbed, I say i wish you guys the best of luck to get things starighten out and David good luck on getting married & have a kid or two, rest your vocals you deserve it man! I want to say Thank You Disturbed! Thank You for giving us great music for these past 12 years, thank you Disturbed! Thank You David, Dan, Mike & John! Thank you my brothers my blood!

Thank you Disturbed! (Crowd Chants 30 times)

I don't know why a hiatus would be such a big surprise. I thought a long break after the end of their tour cycle was already discussed and expected.
