Disturbed singer David Draiman is currently finding success with his new band Device, whose single ‘Vilify’ recently topped the Active Rock chart. Meanwhile, Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren are taking off with their new outfit Fight or Flight, as bassist John Moyer continues to work with Adrenaline Mob.

With all of Disturbed’s band members busy with other projects, there has been some concern and backlash from fans who question when and if Disturbed will get back together. Despite assuring fans in the past that Disturbed would indeed return, in a Facebook posting today (May 23), Draiman once again drove that point home while also asking for support of the members’ various projects.

Draiman writes the following in his signature all caps fashion:

MY DEAR DISTURBED ONES,

WHILE DISTURBED’S HIATUS IS IN EFFECT (AND NONE OF US TRULY KNOW HOW LONG THAT WILL LAST), MYSELF, DAN, MIKE, AND JOHN, WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE YOU ON THE GOINGS ON/PROJECTS FROM THE DISTURBED FAMILY. THERE’S NO ONE WE’D RATHER SHARE IT WITH, AS YOU, OUR LIFEBLOOD, HAVE GIVEN US EVERYTHING AND WE WOULD BE NOTHING/ARE NOTHING WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT. THIS HIATUS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PROJECTS EACH MEMBER OF DISTURBED IS CURRENTLY INVOLVED WITH. IT HAS TO DO WITH STOPPING THE ASSEMBLY LINE TYPE OF MACHINE THE DISTURBED LEVIATHAN HAD BECOME, GIVING OURSELVES AND THE FANS TIME AWAY FROM IT SO THAT WE CAN EVENTUALLY REUNITE, WITH NEW INSPIRATION AND APPRECIATION FROM BOTH THE BAND SIDE, AND THE FAN SIDE. WHEN WE EVENTUALLY REUNITE, AND WE WILL, IT WILL BE AN EVENT, AND ONE THAT WILL HAVE GREATER MEANING FOR ALL OF US. BITTERNESS AT OUR INDIVIDUAL PROJECTS IS REALLY QUITE MISPLACED. SO PLEASE SUPPORT DEVICE, FIGHT OR FLIGHT, AND ADRENALINE MOB AS THEY ARE FRUIT BORN OF THIS HIATUS; WERE COUNTING ON ALL OF YOU. WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP YOU ALL AS INVOLVED AS POSSIBLE AND UPDATE YOU AS THINGS PROGRESS. ALL MY LOVE AND RESPECT,

-DAVID

P.S. LOL…AS IVE SAID BEFORE THE CAPS ARE A STYLE PREFERENCE, BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS/THERE’S A REAL WORLD OUTSIDE YOUR COMPUTER WHERE BIG LETTERS ARE JUST BIG LETTERS, THEY DO NOT ACTUALLY EMIT SOUND; ITS NOT CHANGING, SO IN THE WORDS OF DAN DONEGAN “BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT”.

Device are set to hit the road this summer as part of Megadeth’s Gigantour. Fight or Flight, featuring lead singer Dan Chandler, have just unleashed their first single ‘First of the Last’ to radio.
