DISTURBED Singer Says Picking Final Track Listing For New Album Is 'Most Difficult Part'

DISTURBED have been mixing its yet-to-be-titled third album in Los Angeles for the past month, and singer David Draiman told Launch Radio Networks that the most difficult part of the process is deciding which of the nearly 20 songs the band recorded will make the final track listing. "It's so hard," he said. "I mean, everybody pretty much has the same eight or nine in our head, it's those final three or four spots that are gonna be, you know, fisticuffs kind of thing, you know. We're gonna kind of battle over these, I have a feeling."

DISTURBED's third album is being mixed by Ben Grosse, who has previously worked with FILTER, SEVENDUST and ALTER BRIDGE, among others, and is slated for release in mid-to-late-September. A single should arrive at radio stations sometime this summer. Songtitles set to appear on the still-untitled CD include "Hell", "Decadence", "Monster", "10,000 Fists", "Deify" and a cover of "Land of Confusion", the 1986 pop hit by GENESIS.

The Chicago-based quartet will begin a four-to-six-week North American tour on August 6 in San Diego, California. The only other 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.
