DISTURBED Films 'Warrior' Video

Chicago heavy rockers DISTURBED recently filmed a video for the song "Warrior" with director Chris Marrs Piliero (THE BLACK KEYS, D.R.U.G.S.). The track, which was described by DISTURBED singer David Draiman as "a fight song for fighters," comes off the band's latest album, "Asylum", which sold 179,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart.

In an August 2010 interview with Fight! magazine, DISTURBED drummer Mike Wengren stated about "Warrior", "We wrote that about MMA fighters. We are hoping the UFC will be interested and use it for events or a soundtrack or something. We’ll keep our fingers crossed hoping they like it, but the song is about MMA fighting and just showing our respect to those guys."

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.

"Asylum" arrived in stores on August 31, 2010 in both standard and limited editions.

All editions of the album come with an one-hour documentary in either DVD or digital format called "Decade Of Disturbed".
