DISTURBED Singer Says It's Hard To Assemble 'Music As A Weapon' Tour

Launch Radio Networks reports: DISTURBED has enlisted STONE SOUR for its third Music As A Weapon tour. The band says it always has a hard time assembling a balanced roster for the tour. Singer David Draiman told Launch the band has a difficult time building the bill for the Music As A Weapon tour because they have a hard time finding bands who are one step down from them."We have almost too many bands to chose from," he said. "The issue nowadays is there aren't too many bands out there that are just a step down from us. There's a lot of bands out there that are doing similar business as us: you take a KORN, you take a GODSMACK. It's hard to partner up with somebody who basically can go out and do the business on their own. So it's difficult building the bill."

Previous Music As A Weapon tours have featured bands such as CHEVELLE, TAPROOT, and DROWNING POOL.

The Music As A Weapon III tour is likely to run into February of 2007. More acts will be announced soon, as well as dates, cities and venues for the tour, which will begin sometime in November.
