DISTURBED: 'Indestructible' Title Track Is No. 1 At Active Rock Radio

Multi-platinum hard-rock band DISTURBED has scored its second No. 1 single on the BDS/Billboard Active Rock chart this year with the title track from its current album, the nearly platinum "Indestructible".

The CD's lead-off single, "Inside the Fire", set a record for the longest-running No. 1 in the history of the Active Rock chart when it spent 16 weeks in the top slot. DISTURBED is also riding high with its first-ever Grammy Award nomination in the "Best Hard Rock Performance" category for "Inside the Fire".

The self-produced "Indestructible" debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart in June and remained in the Top 10 for five weeks. It is the band's third consecutive No. 1 album, following its platinum-sellers "Believe" (2002) and "Ten Thousand Fists" (2005), making DISTURBED one of only six rock bands in history to score three consecutive No. 1 debuts with studio albums.

Formed in Chicago in 1996, DISTURBED has sold a collective 10 million albums worldwide.

DISTURBED recently announced plans for a winter U.S. tour that will begin in mid-January and serve as a warm-up for the band's more extensive Music As A Weapon trek in the spring. Frontman David Draiman told The Pulse of Radio that while the first stretch of dates will feature the usual elaborate stage production, DISTURBED will go really crazy on the Weapon run. "We're gonna save big bells and whistles for Weapon," he said. "That's always where we kind of pull out all the stops and go full speed. The warm-up run prior to it will still be one hell of a show, still gonna be the big rock show that DISTURBED always brings, but when it comes for Music As A Weapon, we always try to take it up a notch or two."

DISTURBED's "warm-up run," as Draiman calls it, will begin on January 16 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and extend to the end of February. SEVENDUST will be direct support to DISTURBED on the tour.

The fourth edition of Music As A Weapon will kick off in March with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH joining the headliners.
