Disturbed continues to dominate upcoming charts, events

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The last three albums from Chicago hard-rock assault team Disturbed have debuted at No. 1, and only a fool would bet against that happening again when the band's fifth album, "Asylum," drops on Tuesday.

Beyond that, here are three more upcoming events to watch for from the band:

1. "Decade of Disturbed" is a documentary chronicling just that, the last 10 years of this band's domination of hard rock, which began with 2000's "The Sickness," which has now sold 4.2 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "There is a reason the album cover for 'The Sickness' signified what it did -- the birth of an infected monster emerging into the world. It infected its fan base at the core, spreading into a legion of fans that would become a lifelong army," says the film's director, Rafa Alcantara. The film will be screened at 11:55 p.m. Friday at the Music Box, 3733 N. Southport. And guess what: tickets are free!

2. Disturbed is currently co-headlining the Uproar Festival, a package tour with co-headliner Avenged Sevenfold as well as Stone Sour, Halestorm, Hell Yeah, Airbourne, Hail the Villain and New Medicine. The raucous circus was just in Tinley Park last weekend, but the band will be back this fall on its own headline tour. Watch for dates to be announced.

3. MTV Games announced this week three new Disturbed songs would return the band to the music available for download at the Rock Band Music Store for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.
