Disturbed Already Planning Next Music As A Weapon Tour

Launch Radio Networks reports: DISTURBED has no intention of coming off the road once Ozzfest ends next month. Drummer Mike Wengren told Launch that the Chicago-based band is already planning its third Music As A Weapon tour for sometime this fall. "After Ozzfest we're supposed to go over to Europe, and then when we come back, we're hoping to put together Music As A Weapon," he said. "I don't have any confirmed dates, but we're hoping that's gonna come out, you know, November-ish through, say, February of '07, you know. It's gonna be a nice, long run."

Previous Music As A Weapon tours have featured bands like CHEVELLE, TAPROOT and DROWNING POOL in addition to the headliners.

DISTURBED is co-headlining this summer's Ozzfest with SYSTEM OF A DOWN and, on selected dates, OZZY OSBOURNE. The show hits Scranton, Pennsylvania tomorrow (Wednesday, July 26).

DISTURBED recently released the video for its cover of the GENESIS hit "Land Of Confusion", the latest single from the band's "Ten Thousand Fists" album.

I heard Disturbed f***in' sucks this year at Ozzfest. Maybe they'll decide not to go through with these other tours so as not to inflict their sh**tiness upon the global metal community.

I find it funny that Disturbed is mentioned on "metalunderground.com". They are not metal and they are not underground. Aside from that the band does have some musical talent, but they need to prove their talent on their CD's. More Guitar work and a new singer would be nice !!!!!!!

I've met both bands, and I'll tell you this: Metal, hard rock, not metal, who gives a damn. They're all kick a$$ dudes regardless of how bad some of you think one or the other may or may not be. For the record (IMO), Disturbed was awesome at Ozzfest. I would, however, have to give the "Best Band of Ozzfest 2006" nod to Bleeding Through. Yes, a 2nd stage band, though definitely worthy of being main stage.

disturbed and kilswitch best in metal? doubtful, i'm sorry for killswitch because i have huge respect for those guys, but they arent the best, they dont have very complicated guitar work and tend to get repetitive. disturbed best in metal? pshh, they're not even metal. at least learn to diferentiate your genres, and last i checked they only just recently incorporated solos to their music. once you start speaking of bands of the quality of nevermore or arch enemy then you will be on the level of conversation of what a METAL band is.

and by the way i see better live shows from local bands in NC for about 8 dollars than i would paying to see that mellow, radio friendly garbage that disturbed plays for about 40. and trivium has got a very energetic and crowd envolving show, they blow these f***ers completely out of the water.

Disturbed is on ozzfest because ozzfest wants to sell tickets, not promote metal. If ozzfest promoted metal wicked wisdom wouldnt have played there last year would they have ?

Trivium and KSE rocks, IMHO.

And again here we come with the records, the amount of records you sell doesnt make you a great band in everyones eyes. If that were the case the beatles would be the most talented band in the world.....

disturbed-rules. no trivium isnt my favorite band, i like many bands from many subgenres, and you're entirelly wrong about saying that trivium are based off kse. their main influence is obviously metallica, and trivium isnt even metalcore. my last serenade? it was ok but where is the over the top guitar work on that? man you sound like you base your metal perception from mtv2 or some sh**. have you ever heard of nevermore's i voyager, in flames' december flower, or arch enemy's burning angel? and if you want the best metalcore band try himsa, ever heard the song seminal? it would give those good old kse boys a run for their money, cabron. and of course there are millions of disturbed fans didnt you know they play on this very accessible device called a radio! yeah it uses waves for transmiting signals. everyone in has heard of disturbed, you know why? because they're commercial rock, the get radio play because they are like music from a child's music box compared to anything that is considered as a subgenre of METAL. just about anyone could get into their music, because its pretty melow in the hardness scale. except maybe 80 percent of the users on this site, maybe we just arent metal enough. haha.

i dont like the arch enemy or in flames melodic death metal bull s*it and trivium is a metalcore band and they are do base of killswitch and are a copy from kse and when trivium isnt metalcore what are they ? and metallica is not metalcore too . trivium do not base on metallica and killswitch engage have 3 guitarrists . and in every song killswitch song are great guitarr work. like the end of hertache , rose of sharyn, declaration ,when darkness falls, my last serenade,temple from within, in the unblind , fixation on the darkness, a bid farewell, and more. and in flames or arch enemy are ok but their music are only heard by the swedish people. because they are from sweden. and like i said before i am not interested in the melodic death metal bullsh**. and i think there are more people that respect disturbed or killswitch for their work as inflames or arch enemy. you can see that on their sucess . and the success give me right. they are successfull in america andd even here in germany. and more fans will go to the disturbed concert in munich as when f*cking inflames come and inflames cant play in munich because they play too bad they come as the group before slayer. maybe in a couple of months will they the group before killswitch engage. and slayer is the group before disturbed. when you really want to hear reall metal you can checkout slipknot too.they are great too . and when you say slipknot is bad it doesnt matter they won the metal grammy this year. and they have a good guitarr work and one of the best drummers. ( sorry for my bad english because im german)

The Beatles, Yardbirds, Cream, Elvis, and Deep Purple are the reason metal exists. If I remember correctly, Ozzy himself wanted to be in rock because of the beatles. Elvis was the first to create real controversy in music, and could be considered the first Shock Rock artist. If we don't recognise where metal has come from, we can't take metal where it needs to go!!!!

trivium is contemporary as far as band age to kse and they are in no way metalcore or based off of them, they are simply labeled as metal. your references and comments are absurd. arch enemy and in flames are only heard by sweidish people? you know how ignorant that sounds? they have been around for longer than all these bands that you dearly worship, and their musicianship (for the most part) is unrivaled. succcess doesnt mean sh** as far as radio play and record sales go, do you consider britney spears succesful just because the amount of money she's made from records? is the same as disturbed, mainstream and popular radio friendly crap. and you call melodic death metal bullsh**, well i call you an ignorant mainstream worshiping piece of sh**. slipknot is good yeah but they arent true metal they were numetal, a blend of rap and metal (you ought to know this already), and only now in their last album is their guitar work considerable, iowa hoever was garbage.

I'm not the biggest Disturbed fan in the world, but I can enjoy them from time-to-time. I thought, minus the on-stage rant by Dramain, they were pretty good at Ozzfest, and "Stupify" was the best single song of the day live. As for the Trivium stuff, maybe some of you saw a different Trivium than I did--they had some good energy but their voices are a studio production (read: they couldn't sing a lick when I saw them). Don't get me wrong, I dig their last album as much as the next guy. Anyhow, Trivium is riding such a wave of popularity now that they are already pretty damn mainstream, so no matter what they will be bashed as sellouts and posers.

tell me where is slipknot nu-metal? and in which song do they only rap? i have every cd of slipknot and they dont rap in any song you are in one point right they rap a little but not only and there are only a few songs in that slipknot do rap. and maybe arch enemy or inflames play longer together than killswitch engage but killswitch engage is known by more people and more people enjoy their music and iowa was one of their bests because there is their song : the heretic anthem.and you see they are successfull although they dont play as slipknot together. like corey taylor with stone sour , joey jordison with murderdolls ( hes a gitarrist) and since 2006 the drummer from ministry ( they were nominated for the metal-grammy with their song : the great satan) and how many killswitch songs have you heard? on roadrunner records killswitch is the band with the biggest influence . sure slipknot is that too but they have got a break. but now killswitch engage , is one of the bands with the biggest influence and why? because they are good sure trivium is that too but they do sound a little like killswitch the metalcore bands that not sound like killswitch in a way are hatebreed and devildriver. and have you checked out the killswitch songs that i named before and the band devildriver?, you have to admit they are not bad as you say that they are. and when everybody got the same opinion than its very boring because you cant discuss a thing. and please it isnt necessary to blame me if you call me a piece of sh** maybe i am a piece of sh** , when its true i am proud of this.and you are right everybody got his opinion and you have to respect the opinion but i would like to know what bands do you like ? when killswitch slipknot and disturbed are bad which band do you like than every band that i hear is for you bullsh** so i name the bands that i like now and it doesnt matter to me if you like them or not:
So than i start: children of bodom, killswitch engage, devildriver, hatebreed,motörhead, slipknot, disturbed, drowning pool, stone sour,slayer,shadows fall( and children of bodom dont make melodic death metal and shadows fall dont make it too shadows fall is thrash metal and metalcore children of bodom is black metal i would say but by children of bodom its hard to make that decision because they play from every genre a bit. and maybe shadows fall sounds like in flames. but they arent melodic death metal and slayer is thrash metal). and by the way disturbed will make the best concert that will ever be in munich. and maybe motörhead isnt metal but they won the grammy in 2005 for best metal performance and for their age is that good

Disturbed are one of those bands that I just straight-up HATE. Pathetic excuse for music, let alone metal. Just my opinion, of course, but I fail to hear any talent at all in that band, or any reason why anybody likes them. I would rather listen to little kids screaming and crying than this rubbish.

KsE, on the other hand... Definitely not an inspirationally amazing band, but I absolutely LOVE their stuff. "Numbered Days" is my favourite song of theirs currently. And Trivium are ok.

no, disturbed is no where near the best band live. though sounding exactly like the record gives the band credentials, the awesome live bands are good at sounding better than the record (i.e. halford, iron maiden, iced earth, amon amarth, hell even annihilator). i have seen both trivium and disturbed live and they were both lackluster at best. really sloppy. and about the record sales, who cares? elvis and the beatles are both on the top 100 list every year it seems like, and its been how long since they put out a new album? and girls show their tits at every metal show.

though disturbed may be nu-metal, nu-metal isnt real metal. just the heaviest music the mainstreem culture can take, but as you all mentioned you dont care, well neither do i. i still dislike disturbed and KsE. i do like recorded trivium though.

hey psythe, have you heard their Genesis cover yet? i bet its right up your alley. (extreme sarcasm)

yeah, I heard about the last two covers (didn't get around to grabbing a listen, unfortunately). But Disturbed covering Genesis is a joke! Hell, Disturbed covering Britney Spears is a joke. Lucky for Disturbed I never bothered to listen to that last album of theirs... Did they even try and make it sound like a semi-talented attempt to copy good music, or did they think "hell, we suck. why don't we pick something talented people like, dumb it down so that we can play it and release it as something the mainstream will like!" ??
