DISTURBED Drummer's Onstage Proposal

At last night's (Aug. 31) DISTURBED show in Milwaukee WI, drummer Mike Wengren proposed to his girlfriend onstage. Before the set closer, "Stupify", DISTURBED frontman David Draiman handed the mic over to Mike, who explained how he's spent a lot of time in Milwaukee recently and how he met his girlfriend here. He then invited her onstage and proposed to her (and, of course, she said yes). The band congratulated him, had some shots, and then proceeded to finish the show.

DISTURBED's third album, "Ten Thousand Fists", is scheduled for release 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 3.45 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It follow-up, 2002's "Believe", has shifted 1.58 million copies to date.
