Disturbed will release the first single off their upcoming album “Hey You” this Thursday, and you can check out 30 seconds of it below. Based on what Disturbed has said about the new material, and now this clip, I think it’s safe to assume “Hey You” is going to be reminiscent of the band’s old stuff.
Disturbed vocalist David Draiman recently told the crowd at a Camden, NJ show that the band’s new record is indeed “heavy as fuck.” Well, mostly – there are some tender moments too. “And it’s about 90 percent heavy as fuck,” he said Draiman at the show. “Now there’s still 10 percent of caring, loving goodness – 10 percent. Hey, for everybody that fell in love with ‘The Sound Of Silence’ cover, I figured, you know… But the rest of it? Sickness, Ten Thousand Fists-era Disturbed, for sure. You excited about that? “Cause I’ll tell you we’re really fucking excited about it.”
Draiman recently compared the new material to The Sickness spirit Ten Thousand Fists (again), calling it “pummeling and rhythmic and aggressive and anthemic and poly-syncopated.”
“We’ve come up with some unbelievable new material that is just pummeling and rhythmic and aggressive and anthemic and poly-syncopated – Disturbed 101, everything people fell in love with us for in the first place. It has really been a wonderful past couple of weeks, especially after two years of being apart, not being able to really create. You can create over Zoom or some shit like that but it’s not the same, that inspiration in the moment in front of each other – the magic, energy and electricity that occurs – nothing really compares to it. It was a welcome rush back into the system. Fucking amazing. It’s sounding somewhere in between The Sickness spirit Ten Thousand Fistsfor sure.”
