Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan says fans should not consider the 16 B-sides and rarities on the upcoming compilation "The Lost Children" to be of lesser quality than the songs on their five studio albums.
Heavy, dark and "pissed-off" are the operative terms for Disturbed's new album, according to frontman David Draiman. Draiman tells Billboard.com that the quartet is about 12 songs into the set, which Disturbed is producing itself in Chicago.
With the release of her second greatest hits set just around the corner, Madonna's 1990 Warner Bros. compilation "The Immaculate Collection" has been certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for U.S. sales of 10 million copies. It's the second diamond award for the material girl, taking its place beside the one she earned in 1999 for "Like a Virgin."
Chicago hard rock outfit Disturbed will headline a fall package tour called Music as a Weapon with fellow Ozzfest 2001 alums Drowning Pool and Systematic as well as young, aggressive newcomers Adema and Stereomud. The trek is slated to kick off Sept. 22 in Denver. Dates are set through Oct. 30, with more shows expected to be announced soon.
