Disturbed to Go on Indefinite Hiatus

Bad news for Disturbed fans: The Chicago nu-metal rockers have revealed that they will go on an indefinite hiatus once they wrap up their current tour. No specific reasons were given other than the break is because of “internal issues”.

Speaking to radio station 100.3 The X (via NME), lead singer David Draiman said that the band members need some time apart from each other.

“This is going to be the last tour that the American people get to see us in for a while, if not indefinitely,” Draiman stated. “We have some things going on internally, we have some personal things going on.”

A lot of times when bands say they taking an extended break, it’s because they want to rest and maybe explore other musical projects. Draiman made it clear that side projects are not the reason for the hiatus.

The vocalist simply put it as this:

“We don’t know what we’re doing. We’re not going do our own thing either.”

He also added that Disturbed will not headline the Music As A Weapon Tour next year, though the group could “lease” the brand to other bands as a way to keep the tour alive.

That is not a good sign. However, the break may help rejuvenate the band a la Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Disturbed are currently headlining the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, which will stop by the DTE Energy Music Theatre August 6.
