DISTURBED LOOKING TO EASE BACK ON TOURING

Disturbed frontman David Draiman hinted in a recent interview with Canada's Times And Transcript that the band may ease back on the relentless touring schedule its kept for the past 10 years. Draiman said, "I think that we in the future are going to be a little more selective in our touring and not tour as extensively, not cover territories more than once or twice in a cycle, and really kind of make each Disturbed performance an event. I don't think that at our age and with the level of strenuousness that this life requires that we can continue beating the hell out of ourselves the way that we have."

Draiman also said that he leads a "very straight-edge sort of lifestyle" on the road, and doesn't do much drinking or late-night partying in order to protect his voice. He added, "I never understood why so many musicians turn to abusive drug use until I had been on the road for five, six years. And then you begin to understand why they get drawn into it, why they need it, why they need something to carry them over during the times of abandonment, or loneliness, of loss of anonymity, of loss of self, of loss of any stability and normalcy of life."

The singer concludes by saying, "I'm not tired of writing music and performing in front of crowds, but the life of touring, I've been tired of it for a long, long, long time."

Disturbed has been on the road since April 2008 in support of its fourth studio album, Indestructible, and will finish the touring cycle later this month with a series of European festivals. Draiman told us he likes ending the tour in Europe: "I definitely love playing Europe in the spring and the summertime. We're really looking forward to ending the touring cycle with that. And that should be the end of our touring cycle, probably coming to a close first week of July or so. Then it's time to go write a new record."

Disturbed's last show will be on July 3rd in Finland.

Indestructible was released in June 2008 and became the third Disturbed album in a row to debut at Number One on the Billboard album chart. Only six other rock acts have done that: Van Halen, U2, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, Staind and System of a Down.

The album has sold just over one million copies and is Disturbed's fourth platinum record.

Its sad to hear that, as I have only seen them live in Manchester once & it took them 3 years to come back anyway.

I hope thats the only thing they are easing back on.

They need to relax a little, shit!

They're starting to get on in years these days so it's completely understandable. I'd rather have the band be relaxed and happy rather then have them stressed out all the time.

It's good their going to ease back. Sometimes touring gets in the way of creating quality music, and it can create a lot of stress.
