Disturbed’s Evolution has marked a huge shift for the band, bringing them further away from their “Down With The Sickness” vibes than ever before. With more ballads and emotional songs, the Chicago rockers are diving into a largely acoustic “journey” that was inspired by Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and more.
“We also wanted to show that we are by no means divorcing ourselves from our origins and our past,” frontman David Draiman explains of their new era. With the loss of their classic mascot on the album cover, known lovingly as "the guy," fans were worried about losing the vibe that defined Disturbed. The band has proven that that's not the case, weaving "the guy" into the core of the album instead of just throwing him on the cover.
Hear from frontman David Draiman on what influenced their biggest change yet in the exclusive above.
