DISTURBED has released a lyric video for the song "Open Your Eyes", taken from the band's sixth studio album, "Immortalized", which came out in August 2015. Check it out below.
DISTURBED singer David Draiman told the Rock 100.5 The KATT radio station about "Open Your Eyes": "The lyrical content is pretty self-explanatory. We live in a world where we're barraged by information, and it's information that differs — in fact, a friend of mine and I were just having a conversation about this online — depending on who's presenting it, and the truth is often hidden within a whole bunch of smoke and mirrors and narrative and false flags and things of that nature. So it's encouraging people to look beyond what's immediately in front of them, what's thrust upon them on their screens and to try and find the real truth and the real essence of what they should be doing in their lives, and to wake up."
DISTURBED version of SIMON & GARFUNKEL's "The Sound Of Silence" has been a huge hit for the band, with Paul Simon sharing his approval of it publicly after watching the band perform the song on "Conan" and also exchanging e-mails with Draiman.
DISTURBED's record label, Warner Bros., credited the song's popularity to the video for "Silence", which was released in December 2015. To date, the clip has been seen more than 95 million times, a record number of views on YouTube for the group.
"Immortalized" became DISTURBED's fifth LP in a row to enter the chart at No. 1 — a feat shared only with METALLICA and DAVE MATTHEWS BAND.
