Over the course of 15 years (1996-2011), heavy metal outfit Disturbed created and toured behind five well-received albums, four of which debuted at the top of The Billboard 200. The four-piece Chicago-based band, helmed by David Draiman, has enjoyed album sales of more than 13 million to date.
After their 2000 debut album “The Sickness,” which features hits like “Down With the Sickness” and “Stupify,” Disturbed added their signature nu metal roar to Ozzfest concerts before kicking off their first big headlining run.
Though the rockers’ most recent studio release, 2011’s “Asylum,” debuted at the top of the charts, the effort is the only one not to reach platinum certification. That said, Disturbed toured extensively behind it, selling tickets in major markets and tackling headlining performances at several festivals, including Mayhem Festival, Download Festival and Rock on the Range.
Following their 2011 tour schedule, Disturbed announced an indefinite hiatus. Since that time, the various members have pursued new projects.
