Is the end nigh for Disturbed?
Singer David Draiman has said that the band will go on hiatus after their current stint on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, with no immediate plans to regroup on the horizon and no touring plans set for 2012. The band also admitted it will take a break from live performing to deal with personal issues. Whether said issues are intraband issues or issues that band members must deal with outside of the group remains to be seen.
Draiman told Idaho radio station KQXR that "We don't know what we're doing... We're not gonna do our own thing either. This is gonna 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. So I don't know. It's hard to tell." Well, it's not uncommon for a band with an insanely packed touring schedule like Disturbed to take more than a few deserved minutes off. So perhaps the band is just tired and cranky from non-stop life on the road, coupled with other personal matters?
Yes, Draiman is being cryptic and does little to address things with some clarity, so we can only hope the band works out its issues and enjoys some rest and time off.
