1 You ever think that... on Fri 27 Apr 2012, 01:19
Now to my thoughts. Disturbed wrote and released 5 studio albums, then called it quits for awhile. Anyone ever think that Disturbed signed a 5 album deal with Warner and completed their contract then left? They released a DVD with the Asylum record that entailed their entire career together... seems kind of fitting for a goodbye gift. Almost like they planned on leaving before even going on tour? Correct me if I'm wrong. Alot of artists do this but never actually complete the contract. Disturbed was able to pull through with flying colors. David blames the hiatus partially on the state of the music industry. Then, what does he do on hiatus? Starts writing new solo music for that same music industry. Weird? Maybe. David said he wants to leave the touring alone for while... well he's going on tour with his solo album. That feeling didnt last long. Obviously John doesnt want to call it quits, he went to a whole new fucking band. Dan is the most anxious for a return and nobody has heard from Mike. I see nothing wrong with the industry except for a smaller drop in album sales because of new digital copies. Avenged Sevenfold is touring just fine. Five Finger Death Punch released a new album perfectly fine and they have begun writing a new one already. Stone Sour is in the studio and so is Papa Roach. Halestorm released a hell of an album in this "bad industry". Hell, even Slipknot is planning a comeback. They dont give a shit about the industry, its all about the fans to them. Yes, the boys have been on the road for over a decade and need a break. Everyone understands that. I'm just looking for a much more valid reason to go on hiatus right now, when you're on top of the world.

Let's see how long they stay with us.
