DISTURBED: More Footage From The Studio Posted Online

Video footage of Chicago hard rockers DISTURBED in the studio recording the title track of their new album, "Asylum", can be viewed below.

DISTURBED recently tapped Roboshobo (a.k.a. Robert Schober; METALLICA, MASTODON, DEFTONES) to direct the video for the song "Asylum".

DISTURBED previously worked with Roboshobo on the clip for "Another Way To Die".

As with "Indestructible", DISTURBED self-produced "Asylum", which the band began writing in September 2009 and recording in February of this year. Vocalist David Draiman describes it as "still identifiably DISTURBED, but showing more maturation. We feel this is one of the strongest bodies of work we've ever put together. It definitely goes in familiar areas, but with new levels of precision and skill."

DISTURBED has announced a special pre-order of "Asylum", whcih is due on August 31 via Reprise Records.

As a special gift to fans, the four-piece has created the documentary "Decade of Disturbed". The 60-plus-minute film candidly captures the band's ten-year history, with extensive behind-the-scenes and never-before-seen footage.

"Decade Of Disturbed" will be included with every purchase of "Asylum" as a thank-you from the band.

The "Asylum" limited-edition CD/DVD pre-order comes with the full album, including two bonus tracks (live recordings of "Down With The Sickness" and "Stricken"), expanded artwork, a DVD with the "Decade Of Disturbed" documentary plus nine "Disturbed Dissected" exclusive instrument video instuctionals, and an exclusive double-sided poster with guitar tabs. It is available only through Disturbed1.com.

The iTunes LP version of "Asylum" is also available to pre-order now. This version also includes a download featuring the "Decade of Disturbed" documentary, two bonus tracks (live recordings of "Down With The Sickness" and "Stricken"), an additional exclusive bonus track ("Leave It Alone"), and two "Disturbed Dissected" exclusive instrument video instructionals.

"Another Way to Die", the first single off "Asylum", is a No. 1 hit at Active Rock radio. This is the highest Billboard Active Rock debut in band's history and the fastest No. 1 for the band on Billboard's Active Rock chart in just four weeks. It is also the fastest No. 1 on Billboard's Active Rock chart in over three years.

"Another Way to Die" is DISTURBED's seventh No. 1 single on Billboard's Active Rock chart. They are tied with METALLICA for the third most No. 1s on the Active Rock chart.
