The clip was directed by Nathan Cox (LINKIN PARK, QUEEN OF THE STONE AGE) in Los Angeles last month, just before rehearsals for the band's first tour in two years.

"For an old abandoned hospital it was actually the furthest thing from creepy," DISTURBED singer David Draiman told ChartAttack.com. "We shot the main performance parts in a neutral, brightly lit room that looks like a loft. Then again, Mike [Wengren, drums] did a solo sequence in the boiler room, where they did the Freddy Krueger sequences, which was a bit creepier."

"I was expecting to see some Freddy, for him to come out and kick my ass," Wengren laughed. "He didn't want to come out though. He's too scared. He's got the claws, but I've got drum sticks."

"Stricken" is the first single off the group's upcoming third album, "Ten Thousand Fists", due on September 20 via Reprise. The album features the debut of new bassist John Moyer (ex-THE UNION UNDERGROUND).

As previously reported, Todd McFarlane created the album cover for "Ten Thousand Fists" (view cover art at Spawn.com). Aside from creating the wildly popular comic book character Spawn, McFarlane also designed the album cover for KORN 's "Follow the Leader" as well as the video for "Freak on a Leash" and PEARL JAM 's "Do the Evolution".

DISTURBED will headline the Jagermeister Music Tour in November, followed by the Music As A Weapon III trek in 2006. A short U.K. trek is scheduled for October.

DISTURBED's debut album, "The Sickness" (2000) has sold 3.4 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It follow-up, 2002's "Believe", has shifted 1.57 million copies to date.
