Disturbed formed out of Chicago, Illinois in 1994 and the current lineup consists of frontman David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. The band first came on the scene in 2000 with their debut album The Sickness featuring singles like “Down with the Sickness” and “Stupify”. They’ve released a total of six albums with their latest being 2015’s Immortalized. Disturbed released a cover of the Simon and Garfunkel song “The Sound of Silence” from the Immortalized album and it became a smash hit. Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin toured together in the summer of 2016 and played SPAC. One of the highlights of that summer was interviewing David Draiman on his tour bus before the band's show. We covered a variety of topics. Check out the conversation below.
