Disturbed Drops New Album ‘Immortalized’

It’s been a long hiatus for Disturbed. Today marks their first album drop since 2010. Immortalized hit shelves and Amazon today.

In a recent interview Dan Dongen told 105.7 The Point, “It was, I guess, a tricky decision to make because we still felt like we were still climbing the ladder and at the height of our career. So to be able to shut it down and walk away from it might be a bit of a gutsy movie, but it just felt right. It felt like, you know, maybe it’s time that we don’t become the house band on the summer tour and we don’t become predictable. It just felt like maybe we should just walk away for a minute.”

We’re glad to they’re back!
