Disturbed Notches Seventh Straight Number One On Billboard Airplay Chart
Disturbed's single "No More" has landed at Number One on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, giving the Chicago act its seventh straight chart-topper on the survey, a feat unmatched by any artist. The song is the third single from the band's 2018 album Evolution.
Disturbed has a total of 10 Number Ones on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart. Three Days Grace holds the record with 15, followed by Shinedown with 14 and Van Halen with 13.
Disturbed singer David Draiman told Metal Hammer about the inspiration for "No More," saying, "The powers of this world are always trying to justify another reason for us killing each other. There's always someone we have to fear, there's always another battle we have to go and fight, and they continue to profit off it. So it's just encouraging people to see through the narrative."
Guitarist Dan Donegan told us a while back that Disturbed always wants to push itself in new directions musically: ["If you're an artist and you're painting on a canvas, you don't want to keep painting the same picture over and over. We push ourselves to new things to try to continue to inspire. It's always challenging to not be repetitive on things, so we're always pushing each other to try to do different things. We come in with an open mind and I think that's why we have continued to evolve with the music over the years."] SOUNDCUE (:22 OC: . . . over the years.)
Disturbed will return to the road later this month when the band kicks off a new leg of North American tour dates on September 19th in Estero, Florida, with support from In This Moment.
