Here’s an interesting piece of news that will no doubt give you something to talk about over your awkward family Easter lunches. Multiplatinum and groundbreaking outfit Disturbed frontman David Draiman has confirmed that the much sought-after reunion will happen, it’s just a matter of when.
Draiman, whose focus has been solely placed on his current project Device, who will be releasing their debut album this April, has said that the split didn’t come from a bad place, and when the time is right Disturbed will be back together:
“Disturbed will reunite when the time comes, when we feel right,” says Draiman to Billboard. “When Device has run its course — when everybody’s in the right headspace and we’re feeling re-inspired and we’re ready to go back to it and the itch is itching hard enough — it’ll happen. This was not something that was done for any negative reason. When you feel right and the fire is burning hot, you go back to it with new drive and desire and hunger for it, and you make a timeless record and you continue on. That’s our plan. When that’s gonna happen, none of us have a clue. We haven’t even had any preliminary conversations to that effect.”
All the members, including guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bassist John Moyer are currently keeping their minds active through other creative outlets.
Though no timeframe was put on the comeback, a ballpark date of 2014 could be applied, if the Soundwave 2014 rumours are anything to go by.
