DISTURBED frontman David Draiman has revealed via a series of tweets that he is working on a new musical project while the band is on hiatus. According to the singer, the as-yet-unnamed project will feature a more “industrial” sound in the vein of NINE INCH NAILS and MINISTRY.
Draiman first spoke about the new project last week during the taping of a “That Metal Show” episode which will air on May 26 on VH1 Classic.
DISTURBED went on an open-ended hiatus last fall, following the completion of the touring cycle for its 2010 album “Asylum”.
DISTURBED has not indicated when it plans to return, although all four members say it’s not likely that the group will stay away for good.
DISTURBED released its first-ever collection of B-sides and rarities, titled “The Lost Children”, last November. The set includes a previously unreleased song called “Mine” as well as a benefit track for the West Memphis Three titled “3”, plus tunes that previously appeared only on soundtracks or as bonus cuts on international editions of the group’s albums.
