We’ve never actually been given a chance to forget the fact that Disturbed are on hiatus, because David Draiman basically reassures fans twice a month that his on-a-break shit-rock outfit will come back.
Oh, and Dave’s still using CAPS lock, which I usually correct when I report on his online commentary. But ain’t nobody got time for that.
“WHILE DISTURBED‘S HIATUS IS IN EFFECT (AND NONE OF US TRULY KNOW HOW LONG THAT WILL LAST), MYSELF, DAN, MIKE, AND JOHN, WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE YOU ON THE GOINGS ON/PROJECTS FROM THE DISTURBED FAMILY,” Draiman writes.
“THIS HIATUS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PROJECTS EACH MEMBER OF DISTURBED IS CURRENTLY INVOLVED WITH. IT HAS TO DO WITH STOPPING THE ASSEMBLY LINE TYPE OF MACHINE THE DISTURBED LEVIATHAN HAD BECOME, GIVING OURSELVES AND THE FANS TIME AWAY FROM IT SO THAT WE CAN EVENTUALLY REUNITE, WITH NEW INSPIRATION AND APPRECIATION FROM BOTH THE BAND SIDE, AND THE FAN SIDE.”
That’s a fucking crock…the fan business, anyways, and doing it for the fans. They’re doing it for no one but themselves. To be honest, not having Disturbed around has been nice and I really wish they’d stay gone.
“WHEN WE EVENTUALLY REUNITE, AND WE WILL, IT WILL BE AN EVENT, AND ONE THAT WILL HAVE GREATER MEANING FOR ALL OF US. BITTERNESS AT OUR INDIVIDUAL PROJECTS IS REALLY QUITE MISPLACED. SO PLEASE SUPPORT DEVICE, FIGHT OR FLIGHT, AND ADRENALINE MOB AS THEY ARE FRUIT BORN OF THIS HIATUS; WERE COUNTING ON ALL OF YOU. WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP YOU ALL AS INVOLVED AS POSSIBLE AND UPDATE YOU AS THINGS PROGRESS.”
He also commented on his CAPS usage.
“AS I’VE SAID BEFORE THE CAPS ARE A STYLE PREFERENCE, BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS/THERE’S A REAL WORLD OUTSIDE YOUR COMPUTER WHERE BIG LETTERS ARE JUST BIG LETTERS, THEY DO NOT ACTUALLY EMIT SOUND; ITS NOT CHANGING, SO IN THE WORDS OF DAN DONEGAN ‘BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT.’”
I always figured Dan was a smart-ass.
