DISTURBED: 'All Killer, No Filler'

Cortney Harding of Billboard.com reports that Chicago heavy rockers DISTURBED will be doing a partnership with acclaimed FX TV show "Sons of Anarchy", a "Sopranos"-like drama about a motorcycle club, that includes a chance to win airfare and tickets to the band's Seattle show.

DISTURBED has sold 9 million albums domestically in the last 10 years, and almost half that number can be attributed to its breakthrough record, 2000's "The Sickness", which has sold 4.2 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. But the band has been remarkably consistent, even as sales have trended downward: 2002's "Believe" sold 1.8 million, 2005's "Ten Thousand Fists" sold 1.9 million, and 2008's "Indestructible" sold 1.1 million.

DISTURBED's fifth album, "Asylum", is scheduled for release on August 31 via Reprise.

"There are many ways the new record isn't really different from the previous ones," vocalist David Draiman tells Billboard.com. "It's more complex in terms of composition, and I think the storytelling aspect of the lyrics is better. But while we always want to grow, we never want to deviate from what we fundamentally do. We make rhythmic, aggressive rock. All killer, no filler."
