Disturbed announce new album ‘Evolution’ and release heavy new single ‘Are You Ready’

Well, are you?

Disturbed have announced details of their upcoming seventh album ‘Evolution’, which will arrive in the autumn – and the band have also dropped its first single ‘Are You Ready’, which you can watch the video for below.

‘Evolution’ is set for release on October 19, with the deluxe edition of the record featuring a live version of the band’s popular cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘The Sound Of Silence’.

The band took to Facebook to announce their new album, writing: “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.”

Back in late 2016, Disturbed frontman David Draiman admitted that it was “strange” that his band had been nominated in the same award category as Beyoncé at the following year’s Grammy Awards.

Disturbed were among the acts to be nominated for ‘Best Rock Performance’ for their aforementioned live cover of their version of ‘The Sound of Silence’. They were joined in the category by Beyoncé, who was nominated for her Jack White collaboration ‘Don’t Hurt Yourself’ which featured on her acclaimed ‘Lemonade’ album.
