  • REPRISE RECORDS SIGNS VANCOUVER HARD ROCK BAND ART OF DYING

    In partnership with Disturbed’s label Intoxication Records, Reprise Records is pleased to announce that it has signed Vancouver hard rock band Art of Dying to its roster. Intoxication Records was launched in 2004 by Disturbed singer David Draiman and guitarist Dan Donegan. Its first release was the band’s live CD/DVD Music as a Weapon II.

    Art of Dying is a five-piece rock band fronted by Jonny Hetherington. The Vancouver-based group, which includes guitarist Greg Bradley, guitarist Tavis Stanley, bassist Cale Gontier, and drummer Jeff Brown, has built a dedicated international following since 2006 touring with Disturbed and Seether, as well as performing at such international festivals as Download and The Virgin Festival alongside Tool, Metallica, and The Deftones.

    "We’ve been fortunate enough over the last two years to get to know Dan Donegan and David Draiman as friends, performers, and musicians,” says Hetherington. “We knew that if and when an opportunity ever presented itself with them we would be willing to take it in a heartbeat. When you make music your life and you decide to throw everything you have into it, it's a huge commitment to yourself. Sometimes all you need is a break. For us the break was a phone call from Dan and getting our music into his hands. We are thankful to Disturbed in so many ways for letting us tour with them and attend their ‘school of rock’ while out on the road. We are so honored in every way, shape, and form to have their support."

    “I’d never seen a band with the same work ethic and hunger as Disturbed until I met Art of Dying,” says Donegan. “These guys live music 24/7. They are non-stop, 100 percent committed to their music and their fans. They have a way of connecting and interacting with a crowd not only onstage but off as well. They are regular down-to-earth guys who love what they do and it shows.”

    Art of Dying released its self-titled debut in 2007 through iTunes. They are now hard at work on their debut for Intoxication/Reprise with producer Howard Benson in Los Angeles. “We are very excited to see how the songs will sound once they've been through the ‘Howard Machine,’” Hetherington says.

    Disturbed, which Draiman, Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren, formed in Chicago in 1996, have sold nearly 11 million albums worldwide. Their most recent release, 2008’s self-produced platinum album Indestructible, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart and remained in the Top 10 for five weeks. It is the band’s third consecutive No. 1 album, following the platinum-sellers Believe (2002) and Ten Thousand Fists (2005), making Disturbed one of only six rock bands in history to score three consecutive No. 1 debuts with studio albums. Disturbed’s 2000 debut album, The Sickness, has been certified quadruple-platinum by the R.I.A.A.

Amazing how they've done all that without a bass player! /sarcasm

I googled it and found it might mean the name of the new album which is "Decade of Disturbed" and the count down of the date that it will be released.So that date will be Jan. 12th. I'm not sure if that information is correct but I read quite of few articles from many different resources and they all said the same. I hope is acurate.I have followed this band from day one and I bet this will be the best album yet!

cmmoore307's picture

so its new songs?

medic2774's picture

I missed spelled accurate for one thing. From the interviews I have seen David said this new album was going to be darker than "Indestructible".So that sounded like new music. David also noted that the past year for him was difficult and he had alot he could use. Which I hate that his life is hard and he uses his experiences in his music but I guess we relate to that more and realize they are just like normal people! Well I guess we will see in 6 days what's up!

Ok. This is gettin' outta hand. Will all the people who leave comments to advertise somit just FUCK OFF! Jeez, no-one wants to buy your stupid stuff. This comments page is for comments on the article. Instead of reading comments on how awesome AoD is, and people wishing them all the best, there's just shit on clothes and unemployment levels. Unemployment levels?! Either talk about AoD or quit wastin' comment space.

But no one from Disturbed ever reads this stuff. I was so discouraged when I found that out from someone else on this site who discovered it. As far as that goes, no one from staff, ect., may ever read it either. Sorry. It's what I was told after I had posted several dedications from my heart, and I took them down quickly feeling foolish. I know David Draiman says the 'fans' are the most important thing to Disturbed. And I know the fans' support is very important. But there is no communicating with fans beyond a 'happenstance' autograph, if that. It is a business, my dear.

who cares if anyone from the band reads this shit or not lol,do you not think they are busy enough being just such a shit hot band?
its not like they get alot of time to sit down and go through everyones crap,god get a life,i just fucking love them,and if they dont read anything on here,then oh well,i really do believe they are thankfull to thier fans,just cause they dont reply,dos'nt mean they dont appreciate us! so stop bitching,its not like they would ever notice you,think about it,their music is the weapon and thats good enough for me!:) xx

Disturbed just rocks too much!! 8D

Cant you just come to Portugal this Summer ?? Please !! It would be fucking GREAT !!

Rose O's picture

I really love to watch bands and rock with them. Wow! It would be a great thing for me!Numbers on unemployment for November have been released, and it turns out that unemployment actually went down last month, falling from 10.2 percent in October, but down to 10 percent in November. This might be due to seasonal employment, but we should take what we can get. Optimism could help more than anything else, as confident consumers are more likely to spend money. People are also much more likely to get payday cash advances if they know their jobs are secure.

RIPxDARKNESS's picture

It may also be because some of us who have been unemployed for a while have resorted to, like me and most of my friends, joining the military to support our families.

That could be why, along witht he seasonal jobs...cuz i just got a seasonal job right now lol...just in time for my next rent.

Anywho I wanted to throw that information out at u

I saw this band when they opened up for Disturbed at the Pearl Room. That was when Disturbed were pretending to be a cover band named The Indestructible. Anyway, the lead singer is wicked cute and they really were one of the better bands there that night. I'm glad that Disturbed has finally, found a band to sign.

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side
A terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Ever broken enemy will know
That their opponent got to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive

hmmm... never heard of this band, i'll have to check it out
