Disturbed frontman David Draiman has boldly stated that every single track on the band’s upcoming album Evolution “could be a hit.”
Speaking with Metal Hammer, Draiman proclaimed, “If I died after this record came out, and this was the end of our legacy, I’d be okay with that. To me, this is our ‘Black Album,'” a reference to Metallica‘s self-titled fifth album, which saw that band step in a more melodic direction and break through to massive commercial success.
Draiman explained, “We’ve always used that as a goal — the record that literally every single track on it could be a hit. A record that breaks doors down, that opens up new opportunities to us, that helps you achieve true immortality as an artist.”
Evolution, Disturbed’s seventh studio album, will arrive on October 19th. Last week the band shared the official music video for “Are You Ready,” the first single from the LP. The new disc follows up 2015’s Immortalized, which contained the band’s massive hit cover of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Sound Of Silence.”
