DISTURBED Completes Recording New Album

According to DISTURBED bassist John Moyer, the band has finished recording its new album The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko.

Moyer broke the news by posting an Instagram photo of him, Churko, drummer Mike Wengren and guitarist Dan Donegan at a restaurant, along with the caption: "Celebratory dinner! New @disturbed album tracking done!! Missing @davidmdraiman with @kevin.churko @dandonegan @mikewengren"

Frontman David Draiman said in a new behind-the-scenes video that DISTURBED goes to "war" each time it makes a new album to make sure it's the best it can be. Draiman explained: "You fight for the strength of your creation, you fight to make the greatest thing you possibly can, and it's worth every minute, it's worth every bit of sweat, it's worth every tear. So that's what we live for."

He added: "Every time we put out a piece of art, it continues to define who we are. What could possibly be more important than that and require more of your focus and your time and your energy."

Donegan told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that the band doesn't like to waste time in the studio. "I mean, we definitely go in there very prepared," he said. "We never enter the studio unless we feel like, right now, if these are the songs we record, that we would have an album that we're proud of and we're excited about. And we put everything under the microscope and examine it the best we can to make sure that we're prepared. We don't like going in there wasting time. We go in there to work, and to try to make the best album we can."

The new disc will follow up 2015's "Immortalized", which ended a four-year hiatus for the quartet and was its fifth album to enter the Billboard 200 chart at No. 1.

"Immortalized" featured the band's cover of SIMON & GARFUNKEL's "The Sound Of Silence", a massive hit that introduced DISTURBED to new audiences.
