Attributed to Disturbed
guitarist Dan Donegan: "We are honored every time we are able to perform for our troops and pay our respects to our service men and women. They sacrifice so much for their love of our country, and we look forward to partnering with the USO for the first time as a Force Behind the Forces to bring them a moment of escape from all that they do for us on a daily basis!"
Attributed to Mari Villalobos, Director, Entertainment Relationships: "Disturbed has an enthusiastic military fan base, and we at the USO are excited to bring them directly to the fans who appreciate them so much. We hope this will be the first of many partnerships with them and other Warner Brothers Records artists as we continue to keep service members connected to family, home and country."
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 twelve No. 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 iHeartRadioMusic Awards, Disturbed
continue to boldly forge ahead with the release of their aptly titled seventh offering, Evolution.
