DISTURBED are currently ensconced at Groovemaster Studios in Chicago with producer Johnny K (who also produced DISTURBED's multi-platinum debut, 2000's Sickness) laying down tracks for their sophomore effort, Believe, due out in the fall.“We're just going according to the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it,” frontman David Draiman told Rolling Stone magazine, “rather than uproot ourselves and go some place where we would have to get comfortable all over again and acclimate ourselves to a different producer.” According to Draiman, the forthcoming CD will offer more diversity than the aforementioned debut. "Certain songs on this record are much more aggressive," Draiman says. "There's also a lot more soft vocal on this record, so there's a greater contrast." Believe will tentatively contain the following track listing (in no specific order): 01. Prayer
12. Bound DISTURBED are tentatively planning to return to the road in late summer, with Asian and UK tours planned to take place first, to be followed by a North American trek in the fall.
