DISTURBED Tap TODD MCFARLANE To Direct Next Video

According to IGN.com, Spawn comic and movie creator Todd McFarlane revealed at the inaugural New York Comic-Con this past weekend that he has been tapped to direct the next video for DISTURBED.

McFarlane, along with longtime Spawn artist Greg Capullo, recently collaborated on the band's "Ten Thousand Fists" album cover, and now the comics guru will direct a video for a song from the same album. According to Spawn.com, the video will be co-directed by McFarlane and Chuck Patton and produced by Terry Fitzgerald.

"It's always exciting to work on music videos and to pour yourself into them in a big way," McFarlane said in a statement. "We get to rock out artistically, and the creativity the band has thrown our way will make this fairly easy for us."

"Ten Thousand Fists"' first single, "Stricken" went to No. 1 on the Active Rock radio chart, making it the band's seventh consecutive single to reach No. 1 on this chart.
