After three long years of waiting, Disturbed fans can finally rejoice, as the band have announced the details for their seventh studio album. The album will be titled Evolution and will be released worldwide on October 19th. All the other details, including the full track listing and the cover artwork can be seen down below. The album was produced by Kevin Churko, who also produced the band's last album Immortalized, and it's also the first album that bassist John Moyer is involved with after not being involved with the last album.
The band says in a statement about the album:
"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?"
Down below is the music video for the album's first single "Are You Ready". A few weeks back, the band posted a poll on their website asking fans whether they wanted the first single to be a heavy song or a ballad, and it's not surprising at all that the majority vote went towards heavy. I mean, when it comes to hard rock and metal, do you think the fans want soft? No, of course not, so the fans spoke and the band listened, so here's the heavy song for you. To me, it sounds like Disturbed. I just wish that they would've left out the repetitive "GET UP!" at the beginning. It's not quite grabbing me just yet, but it might after a few more listens. We'll see.
