“It is with tremendous pride, joy, and anticipation that we look forward to sharing the next chapter in the creative life of Disturbed with the world. This record is truly unique, and very special to us, and we can only hope that upon listening to it, that the world will feel the same. The record showcases the most adventurous and eclectic combination of musical styles and moods that we’ve ever attempted in our careers. Each song truly has its own identity, feel, and power. The writing and recording sessions that fostered this album were truly an emotional and magical experience for us, creating without boundaries or limitations, and simply going where each day’s musical inspiration led us. Influenced by some of the great classic rock records of our youth, it is an experience unlike anything we’ve previously created. Its time is drawing near for the world to finally hear what is undoubtedly the most daring record of our lives. Evolution is coming. Are you ready?”
For Evolution, the band—David Draiman [vocals], Dan Donegan [guitar], Mike Wengren [drums], and John Moyer [bass]— re-teamed with Immortalized producer Kevin Churko and recorded at the Hideout in Las Vegas.
“Are You Ready” arrives after Disturbed gave fans the option to vote for the sound of the first single (heavy vs. ballad). The people spoke and the band answered with “Are You Ready.”
