Along with the album announcement, the band has unleashed the new single and music video, "Are You Ready?" as pre-orders have already gone live. Check out the new video and a statement from the band below!

“It is with tremendous pride, joy, and anticipation that we look forward to sharing the next chapter in the creative life of Disturbed with the world.

This record is truly unique, and very special to us, and we can only hope that upon listening to it, that the world will feel the same.

The record showcases the most adventurous and eclectic combination of musical styles and moods that we’ve ever attempted in our careers. Each song truly has its own identity, feel, and power.

The writing and recording sessions that fostered this album were truly an emotional and magical experience for us, creating without boundaries or limitations, and simply going where each day’s musical inspiration led us. Influenced by some of the great classic rock records of our youth, it is an experience unlike anything we’ve previously created.

Its time is drawing near for the world to finally hear what is undoubtedly the most daring record of our lives.

Evolution is coming.

Are you ready?”
