Chicago hard-rock band DISTURBED has set a record for the longest-running No. 1 track in the history of Mediabase's Active Rock chart with "Inside the Fire", the lead-off single from their gold-certified album "Indestructible". The track was No. 1 for 14 weeks at Active Rock Radio and also No. 1 on the BDS/Billboard Active Rock Radio chart for 15 weeks."Inside the Fire", which was released digitally on March 25, is DISTURBED's sixth No. 1 single at Active Rock, and the band's fastest-rising chart-topper to date. The band's previous No. 1 Active Rock singles are "Down With The Sickness", "Prayer", "Liberate", "Stricken" and "Land of Confusion". The second single from "Indestructible", the title track, hits radio this week. Certified gold by the RIAA, the self-produced "Indestructible" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart and remained in the Top 10 for five weeks and is still in the Top 20 after its June 3 release. "Indestructible" is the band's third consecutive No. 1 album, following their 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. DISTURBED's 2000 debut album, "The Sickness", has been certified triple-platinum by the RIAA with sales closing in on four million. Formed in Chicago in 1996, DISTURBED have sold a collective 10 million albums worldwide. DISTURBED is currently on the road co-headlining this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tour through August 19, before heading overseas to tour Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Europe through the end of the October.
