Disturbed is touring in support of new album Evolution (Reprise Records), which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, as well as No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
Since launching the tour back in January with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Disturbed (vocalist David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bassist John Moyer) has drawn rave reviews for their emotionally powerful live show, with critics pointing out the band’s uplifting messages and the many moving moments that take place during their nightly set, including a tribute to the late Chester Bennington and Pantera’s Vinnie Paul and a call to help those in need who are battling addiction and depression – click HERE to watch Rafa Alcantara-directed clip with some of the tour’s highlights.
Evolution’s success has been fueled by overwhelming fan response to tracks like blockbuster lead single “Are You Ready” (which has over 19 million Spotify streams and a companion video with more than 11 million YouTube views) and the lyrically poignant “A Reason To Fight (almost 10 million Spotify streams and close to 9 million YouTube views). The latter was directed by Matt Mahurin (U2, Metallica), who previously collaborated with the band on the clip for their GRAMMY® nominated rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” a video that has over 504 million YouTube views to date.
A deluxe version of the album—which includes a live version of “The Sound of Silence” featuring Alter Bridge/Slash vocalist Myles Kennedy—can be heard in its entirety by clicking HERE.
Prior to the upcoming North American tour, Disturbed will head overseas for an international run that kicks off April 18 at La Riviera in Madrid, then travels to Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, France, London, Glasgow and Manchester. They come back home for festival shows in Columbus (Sonic Temple Art & Music Fest) and Oklahoma (Rocklahoma), then back overseas for another slew of dates, including multiple concerts in Russia.

Simply put, DISTURBED are one of the most successful rock bands in modern history. The multiplatinum-selling quartet accomplished the rare feat of achieving five consecutive number one debuts on the Billboard Top 200. That accolade historically elevated them to rarified air alongside Metallica, the only other hard rock group to do so in the history of the chart. Immortalized (2015) received a platinum certification and spawned the triple-platinum crossover smash “The Sound of Silence,” which garnered a nomination at the 2017 GRAMMY® Awards in the category of “Best Rock Performance.” Since their formation in 1996, the band has sold 16 million albums globally and scored twelveNo. 1 singles at Active Rock Radio. Their quadruple-platinum 2000 debut, The Sickness, formally announced their arrival as hard rock leaders, with that status solidified by subsequent GRAMMY® Award nominations as well as gold-, platinum- and double platinum-certified records, as well as countless sold-out shows around the globe. Named “Best Rock Artist” during the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Disturbed continue to boldly forge ahead with the release of their aptly titled seventh offering, Evolution.
