DISTURBED To Play Legendary New York City Club CBGB

DISTURBED will mark their new album's release — and wrap their current six-and-a-half-week North American tour — by performing Tuesday, September 20 at the legendary CBGB in New York City. Tickets for the special event will only be available through the band's official fan web site, www.thedisturbedones.com, and New York's K-ROCK FM, which is sponsoring the show.

DISTURBED recently unveiled the cover art for the "Ten Thousand Fists" album by renowned comic artist Greg Capullo and producer/director/artist Todd McFarlane at www.spawn.com. The striking cover image depicts a diverse multitude following the band’s daunting, smiley-faced mascot.

The album’s first single, "Stricken", is currently #6 on Radio & Records Active Rock chart while the song’s video is being played on Fuse. Filmed in an abandoned Los Angeles hospital by director Nathan Cox (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MARILYN MANSON, KORN, LINKIN PARK, STAIND), the ominous video features dynamic performance footage of the band interspersed with a wide range of stirring images.

"Stricken" is among the more personal of the new tracks. According to frontman David Draiman, "It's about those moments when someone comes into your life and it’s almost as if you've been afflicted with a disease you can't get rid of. Devastating and debilitating."

"There's true substance, true passion, true emotion and relevancy to all of these songs," explains David. "And it's an interesting record, in that it seems to really effectively fuse elements from our last two records, like the aggression and darkness of the first, with the more melodic and complex nature of the second."

DISTURBED's new album, "Ten Thousand Fists", arrives in stores on September 20. The band will headline the Jägermeister Music Tour in November/December (with support from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY), followed by the Music As A Weapon III trek in 2006.
