DISTURBED's 'The Sickness' To Be Reissued With Bonus Tracks, Expanded Artwork

In March 2010, Chicago heavy rockers DISTURBED will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the release of their quadruple-platinum-selling debut album "The Sickness" by reissuing it with exclusive b-sides and expanded artwork, as well as a first-time-ever vinyl edition. Also in March, DISTURBED will relaunch their official web site with a special section, accessible by a code included with "The Sickness" reissue, that will contain exclusive clips, updated weekly, of the band recording their upcoming new album, due for release from Reprise Records later this year. There will also be a special DOD section that will be available for everyone.

Released on March 7, 2000, "The Sickness" is DISTURBED's best-selling album to date, thanks to such hit singles as "Stupify", "Voices" and "Down With the Sickness", which is the seventh most downloaded track of the '00s, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

DISTURBED's long-awaited DVD, which is believed to have a working title of "Decade Of Disturbed", is due later this year.

DISTURBED took out its biggest stage production in years on last spring's Music As A Weapon tour, which made the show ripe for documenting on a DVD. Vocalist David Draiman told The Pulse of Radio at the time, "We already have a bunch of footage that's been amassed, and we're trying to do a full-blown production shoot of one or more of these actual live performances. And there is definitely plans for a DVD in the works. I don't know necessarily that it will be specifically a 'Music As A Weapon' DVD. I think that it's going to be more of a 'Decade Of Disturbed', so to speak."

The Weapon lineup also featured KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, LACUNA COIL, CHIMAIRA, and others, along with extreme sports demonstrations, tattoo artists, a vendor village and outdoor second stage.

In July 2009, DISTURBED played its last show in support of its 2008 album "Indestructible". The band had been on the road behind the record for nearly 15 months. Draiman told a Canadian newspaper last summer that the band may ease back on its relentless touring schedule, saying, "I don't think that at our age and with the level of strenuousness that this life requires that we can continue beating the hell out of ourselves the way that we have."
