DISTURBED: Brand New Photos Posted Online

DISTURBED took part in a photo session earlier today (Thursday, January 31) at a private studio in Los Angeles. Check out the results at Wire Image.

According to The Pulse of Radio, DISTURBED is looking at a late May release for its fourth studio album, titled "Indestructible". A single is likely to surface at radio stations sometime in March, although the song itself has yet to be finalized. The group is reportedly working on a number of promotional ideas to support the record. Singer David Draiman, a strong proponent of making music a purely digital product, told The Pulse of Radio that the band will nevertheless add a lot of extra features to the CD. "I definitely am all for any record companies being as aggressive as they can about moving towards just completely digital-based media," he said. "But we will continue to try and do things, and we're still going to do things this record cycle as well, to try and make it where there's a reason to buy it that's beyond what we're doing just musically."

DISTURBED is confirmed to be touring this summer on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour, along with SLIPKNOT, MASTODON and DRAGONFORCE, among many other acts.

The group may also play some smaller shows in the spring, including a special overseas event.

Draiman recently said that "Indestructible" will be a heavier, angrier, more aggressive record than either 2005's "Ten Thousand Fists" or 2002's "Believe".

"Dude, I've had a fucked-up couple of years," he told MTV.com. "All kinds of horrible stuff went on. Bad breakups; I've had my garage burn down with all of my vehicles in it; I had a bad motorcycle accident that took off a whole bunch of skin from my forearm — just bad luck. It's been a fierce past couple of years, and all kinds of shit has gone down. This is therapy, man — I need to get this shit out of me."

Draiman recently sold his castle-like house in Los Angeles' Northridge area for $2,580,000. Draiman purchased the residence in late 2005 for $2,535,000 (just $45,000 less than he sold the house for, meaning he surely lost money on the deal). Public records show that Draiman sold the house on October 23, 2007 to a woman who is not a celebrity. The deal was recorded on November 16.
