David Draiman Reportedly Suggests New Disturbed Album Is Finished
Disturbed appeared to have completed their anticipated eighth studio album and follow-up to 2018's Evolution in an Instagram pic lead singer David Draiman reportedly posted but subsequently deleted on April 9, according to ThePRP and Metal Injection.
The image purportedly showed a completed progress chart for the recording process of the effort, with 10 new songs checked off by what were presumably working titles for the tunes.
The Disturbed vocalist reportedly hinted at finishing the album when he captioned the photo, "And that's a wrap people." See the song names said to have been shared down near the bottom of this page.
Last year, Draiman told Loudwire Nights that the hard rock and heavy metal band's forthcoming album evoked "old school Disturbed," adding, "It's somewhere between The Sickness and Ten Thousand Fists. It's in that realm, and it was really, really nice going back there."
Around the same time, he suggested the act considered splitting the new material into separate releases, as opposed to issuing a "traditional full-length."
This summer, Disturbed will hit the road for festival performances throughout North America. See the dates below and get tickets here.
Draiman Frequently Shares on Social Media
Last week, Draiman came to the defense of Lil Nas X on Twitter after conservative TV host Greg Kelly condemned the hip-hop artist on the platform.
In an April 4 tweet, Kelly, a Newsmax anchor, appeared to equate the rapper with corruption and called him a fool "with zero talent." It accompanied an image of Lil Nas X in an half-shirt at the Grammy Awards.
Draiman responded April 5, "News flash @gregkellyusa, artists have been doing things like this for decades. Not sure why it bothers you when @LilNasX does it. Don't like it? Don't watch. You be you @LilNasX."
The singer often uses Twitter and Instagram to address current issues in popular culture. The Disturbed rocker recently reinstated his Twitter account.
