Although Disturbed just announced a massive worldwide tour for 2019, frontman David Draiman says the band will be touring less frequently in the future. He made the revelation on a new episode of the the Raincast podcast—hear it below.

And the admission wouldn’t seem as shocking if the band’s upcoming world tour wasn’t such a lengthy undertaking, the Disturbed singer’s latest comments seemingly flying in the face of a globe-spanning jaunt that covers the first half of next year. But the musician explains that the group’s touring circumstances won’t quite be the same going forward.



“One thing I will caution everyone on is because we’re doing this tour the way that we are, because we’re doing arenas on our own, because we’re doing the two-hour-long set, because we’re targeting things the way that we are, it’s not gonna be as frequent as Disturbed used to be,” says Draiman, per Loudwire.

“The days of just the machine rolling and rolling and rolling are just past where we’re at as people, as individuals,” he explains. “We’re all family men now, and there’s a yin and yang. And not only that—but it’ll end up being healthier for everybody.”

But the bandleader still implores fans to catch the act while they’re hot. “When it does happen,” he says, “come, because it may not be a year or two or three till we see you. So, come on out—be a part of it. Let’s make it a night to remember.”

Disturbed’s latest full-length Evolution just dropped last Friday, Oct. 19. And, as mentioned, the Evolution Tour kicks off next year, the dates of which can be viewed down below. Get all the new album and ticket information right over here.
