"Asylum", the new video from Chicago heavy rockers DISTURBED, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Roboshobo (a.k.a. Robert Schober), who has previously worked with METALLICA, MASTODON and DEFTONES, among others. Roboshobo also helmed the video for "Another Way To Die", the first single from DISTURBED's new album, also titled "Asylum", which will arrive on August 31 via Reprise Records.
DISTURBED is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a special gift to fans: a documentary entitled "Decade of Disturbed". Starting August 26, five days before the release of DISTURBED's new album, "Asylum", "Decade of Disturbed" will play on the big screen in movie theaters in 13 cities across the country. "Decade of Disturbed" will be also included with every purchase of "Asylum".
The 75-plus-minute film, directed by Rafa Alcantara of Twentyfourcore Productions, candidly captures the band's ten-year history, with extensive behind-the-scenes and never-before-seen footage. "It basically tells the story of the band, from its inception to present day," says DISTURBED frontman David Draiman.
"The band has had its share of ups and downs along the way and I think we tried to be as open and honest about all of it as we could. It's very insightful and we hope it's something the fans will appreciate."
Full preview screening information can be found at this location.
