DISTURBED Singer: Response To 'Immortalized' Album Has Been 'Overwhelming'

It was just over a year ago that DISTURBED released its first all-new studio album since 2010, "Immortalized", and watched the record enter the Billboard album chart at No. 1 to become the group's fifth chart-topper in a row. With the album also going platinum, plus a massive tour and three No. 1 singles under their belts as well, singer David Draiman told The Pulse Of Radio he couldn't be more pleased with the response to the band's "comeback". "I hoped and I dreamed, but I will say in all honesty that what has actually transpired has exceeded my hopes and dreams," he said. "It's really been amazing, people's reception to the record, to our touring, to the three singles that we've had out thus far... We're blown away. We hoped for a positive reception, but we didn't expect anything like this, so it's really just overwhelming and we couldn't be more grateful."

DISTURBED went on hiatus at the end of 2011, with Draiman and the other members of the band all pursuing other projects for several years before returning in 2015.

Draiman told Fight+Music that the quartet is performing in peak mode since coming back, saying, "It's been amazing — the fire has been stoked. We're performing at a level that I personally believe is unprecedented in our careers. The crowds have been amazing, huge."

DISTURBED's three No. 1 singles from "Immortalized" are "The Vengeful One", "The Light" and their crossover smash cover of SIMON & GARFUNKEL's "The Sound Of Silence".

The band will begin a new round of North American tour dates on September 23 in Las Vegas, ending in Sacramento, California one month later.
