DISTURBED Frontman Says New Album Is Moving Along

DISTURBED frontman David Draiman recently spoke to Launch Radio Networks about the progress of the recording sessions for the group's new album. This will be their third effort with Chicago-based producer Johnny K. and Draiman talked about where things stand with the new disc. "Well, we are actually in the process of tracking," he said. "We just finished pre-production and we have laid down a bunch of rhythm tracks-drums, bass and guitar. And so far, we have three songs tracked vocally. We've got about 20-21 songs and about 12 or 13 will end up making the record. It's definitely moving along at a good pace."

This will be DISTURBED's first album with bassist John Moyer, formerly of THE UNION UNDERGROUND, who replaced Steve "Fuzz" Kmak. The band hopes to have the album out by the end of the summer. Tentative tracks include "Hell" and "Monster", both of which the band performed last summer in Chicago.

As previously reported, DISTURBED's Feb. 23 benefit show for the Dimebag Darrell Memorial Fund, scheduled for Chicago's Aragon Ballroom, will also include a silent auction of items donated by friends of the band, including the Chicago Bears football team. DISTURBED, ANTHRAX, SOIL and DROWNING POOL are all slated to perform, with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY also a possibility.

Tickets are available for $37.50, with proceeds helping to cover bereavement costs for the family of DAMAGEPLAN security guard Jeffery "Mayhem" Thompson and medical expenses for DAMAGEPLAN crew members John "Kat" Brooks and Chris Paluska.
