Chicago heavy rockers DISTURBED have released a new, all-performance version of their "Inside the Fire" video, which you can check out below.
The original version of the "Inside the Fire" comes with a short introduction by singer David Draiman in which he reveals that the song deals with suicide, adding that anyone watching the clip who is either suicidal or knows someone that is should contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Draiman told The Pulse of Radio that the theme of the song and video come from a dark incident in his own life. "It is based on a true story of my own, where when I was about 16 or so, I had a girlfriend of mine commit suicide, and it was an unbelievably horrific and painful experience," he said. "And it was cathartic to make the song, and it really took me having a certain mindset to do it, and I had to wait 'til I was ready."
"Inside the Fire" is the first single from DISTURBED's fourth studio album, "Indestructible", which arrives on June 3.
Fans who pre-order the CD will receive a limited-edition version featuring an exclusive B-side called "Run", a DVD documentary on the making of the album, a VIP "Rock Star Lounge" laminate for the 2008 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour, access to an exclusive web site and more. Each iTunes pre-order will include four exclusive live tracks recorded at Chicago's Riviera Theater.
Following its current spring solo run, DISTURBED will co-headline the Rockstar Mayhem Energy Tour with SLIPKNOT in July and August.
