I was hoping Disturbed would just stay gone but…not the case.
Device’s frontman David Draiman says Disturbed — which went on hiatus last year — will carry on, even if Device become the biggest band on the planet.
“My brothers and sisters, my blood, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for coming with me on this new journey that is Device,” Draiman writes. We’ve de-caps locked his words for you.
“I am eternally grateful for the love that you all have for Disturbed, and I also understand the defensiveness that can come with any thing that could potentially be perceived as a catalyst to some sort of ‘breakup theory’ that, I assure you, has no base in the first place.
“If you read the Device bio that was posted on the Device Facebook page, you will learn that the whole project came together quite accidentally, and I’m very glad it did. I think you will be too.
“Disturbed is still on hiatus. A hiatus is an extended break, not ‘breakup.’ We have fought long and hard together, all of us, to make Disturbed what it has become, and are not just walking away from it. We all needed to just give ourselves some time away from it. The existence of Device does not in any way shape or form mean the end of Disturbed. They are two completely separate entities, and I hold them both in the highest regard. You are about to get your first taste this coming week.
“You have all of my love and respect.”
Wish I could say the feeling was mutual.
