frontman David Draiman
has confirmed that the group will definitely return from the indefinite hiatus they went into in October 2011, and that once they do, "it will be an event."
In a recent Facebook announcement
, the singer also stressed that the projects some of the band members are involved with at the moment have nothing to do with the break.
"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,"
Draiman started. "There's no one we'd rather share it with, as you, out 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."
Draiman then further discussed the group's reunion, saying, "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; we're counting on all of you."
Apart from working on his project Device, Draiman also found time to make a guest appearance
on two new Megadeth songs off the group's upcoming album "Super Collider
Latest Disturbed record, "Asylum
," came out in 2010 via Reprise Records as the band's fifth studio effort. With about 179,000 records shipped in the US within the first week, it landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking the group's fourth consecutive chart-topping debut in the US.
