Aug. 21 also marks the date for the bands much anticipated returning sixth studio album, Immortalized.

Could this be the first show in a possible future tour announcement? Fans can only hope so, even though a tour will eventually head our way in the near future.

The band ended their hiatus recently with a brand new music video for the lead single off the new album titled “The Vengeful One.”

Disturbed secretly recorded the album over the last year. The album will be released through Reprise Records.

The band has posted numerous videos on Facebook titled “The Making Of Immortalized,” explaining how things came about. Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Disturbed’s last four studio albums debuted at number one on the rock charts. With all the anticipation for this release, it could mean a fifth consecutive top-selling album for the band come Aug. 21.

Disturbed was formed in 1994 under the name Brawl. Two years later in 1996 is when the band changed their name to Disturbed after the hiring of frontman David Draiman and the parting of Erich Awalt.

The current band line-up has been together since 2003. Bassist John Moyer replaced the fired Steve Kmak in 2003 and played his first show with the band at the House Of Blues. Kmak was fired by the band for “personality differences” right after the band’s Music As A Weapon II Tour.

Disturbed is: David Draiman (vocals), Dan Donegan (guitar), John Moyer (bass), and Mike Wengren (drums).
