DISTURBED Debut New Bassist At Hometown Gig

DISTURBED played their first show with new bassist John Moyer (ex-THE UNION UNDERGROUND) on Saturday at the House Of Blues in their hometown of Chicago, according to Launch Radio Networks. The band also debuted two new songs, titled "Hell" and "Monster", which will most likely appear on the group's third album. No release date has been set, but the band has indicated on their web site that they will probably be writing and recording for the rest of 2004.

DISTURBED frontman David Draiman told Launch that the quartet are not putting themselves on a deadline with the new record. "We're not gonna rush it at all this time around. So I think we're gonna be a little paranoid and a little ultra-careful and, you know, like we normally are, but even more so in this situation, just 'cause it's the third release and we've passed the sophomore jinx, now we have to follow up with one that hopefully will immortalize us."

DISTURBED parted ways with bassist Steve "Fuzz" Kmak late last year due to personality conflicts. The band will wind up a short run of dates with a performance at the Rolling Rock Town Fair on Saturday (July 31) in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, along with VELVET REVOLVER, STAIND, HOOBASTANK and THREE DAYS GRACE.
