Although Lenardo wrote the album with Draiman, he doesn’t tour with Device.
Instead, Will Hunt and Virus join Draiman on the road.
Whenever it arrives, the new album will mark Disturbed’s follow-up to their chart-topping 2015 album “Immortalized,” which featured the group’s crossover cover of the Simon & Garfunkel track “The Sound of Silence.” In other news, band members have kept busy with other projects.
I love this music, it’s awesome, it’s out of the box, it’s futuristic, it’s everything I love.” Six months later, while Hunt was in Beirut, Lebanon with Evanescence, Lenardo reached out to him via Facebook to let him know Device was a go.
Following yesterday’s press conference announcing the “Ozzfest Metts Knotfest” mega-festival, Zakk Wylde’s Black Sabbath cover band, Zakk Sabbath, took to the stage at the Palladium in Hollywood.
The band, which also features Rob Zombie bassist Blasko and and Danzig and Queens of the Stone Age drummer Joey Castillo, were joined by Slipknot’s Corey Taylor for “Fairies Wear Boots” and Disturbed’s David Draiman for “N. B.” “Ozzfest Meets Knotfest” is scheduled to take place September 24 and September 25 at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California.
When asked how this group of misfits came together, Draiman explains “I’ve known Will for years and years and years.
We originally met back in the day when he was in a band called Skrape.” Hunt, obviously the joker in the band, jumps in, “If you take the ‘S’ and the ‘E’ off, it’s crap.” After a good laugh, Draiman continues “Will came into the fold because he was one of the first people to hear any bit of music that Geno and I created initially… Will was also doing some work there.” “Ripped my face off,” Hunt exclaims.
