DISTURBED IS BACK IN THE STUDIO

With one tweet, Disturbed let fans know they're recording again. A photo of a studio console along with the caption: "Getting started" is all it took.

This will be their first new music since 2015's Immortalized album. Prior to that, the band had been on hiatus since the fall of 2011. It became their fifth album to enter The Billboard 200 chart at # 1, a feat shared only with Metallica and Dave Matthews Band.

Although they didn't mention any details…last year, singer David Draiman revealed that the next release would be an acoustic EP.

SEVENDUST WRAPPING UP NEW ALBUM

The quote from Sevendust's Instagram page reads: "Mastering has begun! Can’t wait for you guys to hear it."

The follow-up to 2015's Kill The Flaw was recorded at Studio Barbarosa in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge, Slash, and others.

 In a recent interview with Good Company, lead singer, Lajon Witherspoon stated: "We've done so much more in 33 days recording this than I've ever done in my life. I sang 14 songs in nine days to make up for some time that was lost. But it was because I felt good too, so some days I did two songs a day."

In 2016, Sevendust received their first-ever Grammy nomination for "Thank You." The song got the nod for Best Metal Performance.
