Disturbed have said they intend to go on indefinite hiatus after they complete their current US tour.

The Chicago metallers, who released their fifth studio album 'Asylum' last year, revealed in an interview with US radio station KQXR that "internal issues" are to see them go their separate ways for a long while.

Frontman David Draiman said: "This is going to be the last tour that the American people get to see us in for a while, if not indefinitely. We have some things going on internally, we have some personal things going on."

Disturbed had hinted earlier in the year when they played Download Festival that they were thinking of taking an extended break. Speaking to NME, Draiman said then: "We're not sure when we're going to be back."

The singer also revealed that the break was not due to planned side projects, adding: "We don't know what we're doing. We're not going do our own thing either."

Disturbed toured the UK last December, headlining the Taste Of Chaos arena tour alongside Papa Roach and Buckcherry.
