DISTURBED's 'Music As A Weapon' Tour To Be Announced Next Week

The lineup of DISTURBED's fifth "Music As A Weapon" tour will reportedly be announced next week, possibly as soon as Monday (November 15). Frontman David Draiman hinted in a recent interview that the trek's co-headliner will be "massive," with KORN strongly rumored for that slot. "It's going to be appearing in a union that I think hard rock and heavy metal fans have been wanting to happen for awhile," Draiman said. "It has happened before, but only in brief stints. Now it's gonna happen for the duration of a two-leg-long tour. And we're gonna join forces with a leviathan. And we're really looking forward to it."

Previous Music As A Weapon lineups have included CHEVELLE, STONE SOUR, DROWNING POOL, ALTER BRIDGE and others.

DISTURBED's U.S. tour was recently canceled because Draiman was diagnosed with a serious throat condition.

According to tour promoter Live Nation, the unspecified "condition" is not permanent, but Draiman was advised to stop performing for at least four weeks in order for it to heal.

Draiman in 2006 underwent successful surgery to fix a deviated septum which was making breathing difficult and affecting his vocal abilities on stage.
