After a 5-year hiatus, hard rock legends Disturbed will once again be reigning fire down arenas as they tour Australia this November.
The multiplatinum metal rock legends Disturbed return with their sixth LP and first release in five years, Immortalized (out now through Warner). Boasting 12 million record sales and counting, a Grammy nomination, and a multitude of accolades since their humble beginnings in 1994, Disturbed’s comeback is saturated in the fiery determination fans love them for. The album features the band’s bravery to route to another musical dimension while retaining their signature metal roots.
Locally, Immortalized rocketed to No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, while their single ‘The Sound Of Silence’ also nabbed spot in the ARIA Singles Chart. The momentum behind Disturbed builds and builds, with the video for ‘The Sound Of Silence’ currently sitting at No. 1 on the iTunes Video Chart while Immortalized sits at No. 19 on the ARIA Albums Chart. This kind of success for a heavier rock band comes as a musical wonder, further proving just how extraordinary Disturbed are.

“Disturbed are back, and they’re on top form” – Classic Rock Magazine

Disturbed’s live performances are dominated by the incredible vocals of lead singer David Draiman, and skilful musicianship of Dan Donegan (guitar), Mike Wengren (drums) and John Moyer (bass). Fans are sure to be treated to new Disturbed tracks like ‘The Vengeful One’, ‘The Light’ and of course, ‘The Sound Of Silence’. Fans of their earlier material should also look forward to hearing old favourites lifted from The Sickness like ‘Down With The Sickness’ and Ten Thousand Fists smash hit ‘The Stricken’.
Currently touring Canada and North America, their live performances have been garnering high marks.

“An energetic and powerful performance by the entire band provided the fans with exactly what they had been waiting for” – National Rock Review
Joining Disturbed for the entire Australian leg of the tour will be metal five-piece Twelve Foot Ninja. Known for their heavy fusion style, these Melbourne locals are the only independent band and only Australian band to have received Best New Talent at the Golden Gods Awards – America’s only heavy music awards.
Their latest offering ‘One Hand Killing’ is the first track leaked from their forthcoming and as-yet untitled sophomore album, set to follow the path created by tracks like ‘Mother Sky’, ‘Coming For You’ and ‘Shuriken’. Audiences at Disturbed’s Australian shows will be amongst the first to hear selections from Twelve Foot Ninja’s hotly anticipated new material.
A not-to-be missed show from a reinvigorated band of four ready to tear up stages and show Australia what they’ve been missing. Not since 2011 have they graced our shores, and if their 2016 performances are anything to go by, these shows will take fans on the ride of their lives!
