Frontier Touring Co is proud to announce the Australasian tour of the latest metal sensation Disturbed for a special limited run of shows in February 2003.

Described as confrontational and menacing, vocalist David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, bassist Fuzz and drummer Mike Wengren will provide a truly memorable performance to fans in both Australia and New Zealand.

As a product of natural selection, this oft-maligned genre has gathered strength from continuously swimming against the current over the course of its 33 year history and Disturbed are best summed up by the monumental words of Ozzy Osbourne "I have seen the future of metal".

"We have a responsibility," Draiman says "Two and a half million people invested in us and believed in us with the last album. We owe it to them, to ourselves and to everything we stand for, to respect the lineage and the tradition and the purity of metal. We have to remain faithful to true metal - first established in the name of Black Sabbath and a hundred other great bands: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Metallica, Pantera, even Soundgarden - all of those bands had songs that spoke about grand things."

Disturbed's highly anticipated new album Believe, the follow-up to the band's multi-platinum debut The Sickness, hit the music marketplace on September 17 and debuted at No. 1 on the US and Billboard 200 Charts. David Draiman defines Believe as the album to bring back the majesty of metal: "With this album I wanted to speak about important things in a grand way and even touch on things that may not seem so important, but come at them from a perspective that makes them inviting, delicious - even foreboding!"

Snatched by Disturbed from the flow of tradition, this new brand of metal is like a shark. Their music is highly evolved, lean and muscular with a terrible efficiency and singleness of purpose.
