DISTURBED took part in a live chat/webcast this past Tuesday (August 31) on the band's Ustream channel. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below. (Note: The webcast begins around the eight-minute, 15-second mark.)"Asylum", the new album from DISTURBED, is likely to sell between 145,000 and 160,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at the top of next week's The Billboard 200 chart, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on August 31. The band's previous three albums — 2008's platinum "Indestructible" (first-week sales: 253,000), 2005's double-platinum "Ten Thousand Fists" (first-week sales: 238,000) and 2002's platinum "Believe" (first-week sales: 284,000) — also debuted at No. 1. DISTURBED's best-selling release to date is its 2000 debut, "The Sickness", which has shifted more than four million copies in the U.S. alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan. DISTURBED kicked off its headlining stint on the very first Uproar tour on August 17 by unveiling its massive new stage show, which HardDrive Radio called "a total assault of the senses." The production features a tremendous amount of visuals on huge LED screens, state-of-the-art pyrotechnics and an opening film in which singer David Draiman is seen in an asylum before seeming to burst out of the screen and onto the stage. ***NOTE: The webcast begins around the eight-minute, 15-second mark.
