Launch Radio Networks reports: DISTURBED recently made a song from its upcoming third album available online at both the iTunes store and myspace.com/disturbedofficial. Called "Guarded", the track is not the first official single from the band's new disc, called "Ten Thousand Fists". That is likely to be a tune called "Stricken", which is expected to arrive at rock radio around July 19.
DISTURBED frontman David Draiman told Launch that "Guarded" was released to give fans a taste of the band's new effort. "'Guarded' was put out there to just whet everybody's appetite. It's one of the more aggressive tracks on the record, just to remind everybody where we came from and who we are. Kind of give back to the core a little bit. It's a song that reflects what choosing this life forces certain people to do in a certain way — you have to remain guarded on a certain level."
"Ten Thousand Fists" is set for release on September 20. The album features the debut of new bassist John Moyer.
The title track has been tapped to appear in the next NFL Madden video game.
DISTURBED will begin a four-to-six-week North American tour in August. The only two confirmed dates so far are Portland, Oregon on August 10 and the Black Hills Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 12.
DISTURBED will also headline the Jagermeister Music Tour in November, followed by the Music As A Weapon III trek in 2006.
