Korn and Disturbed have teamed up for the fifth edition of the Music As A Weapon Tour with opening support coming from In This Moment, Hail The Villain, Art Of Dying, and Sevendust. The 45-city trek is finalizing tour dates but one guarantee is that the first 1,000 tickets sold at each venue will be discounted $5.
“We’ve both just finished great tours. We headlined Mayhem and Disturbed headlined Uproar. The Disturbed guys came out to see us play in Chicago and we got to talking about doing something together. We both agreed that as cool as those types of tours are, they usually only hit major markets, and we both agreed that a lot of our fans just don’t live in those cities, etc so we thought it would be cool to team up, put a big show together, and hit every great place that those big tours never get to. Besides all that, with us and Disturbed together, doing full shows with full production…all I can say is IT’S ON!” …said the excited Korn frontman.
“We are thrilled to launch the Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5 Tour with our good friends from Korn,” added Disturbed singer David Draiman. “Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by having Korn co-headline, we really think it’s going to be our best tour yet. When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. It’s exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over on some of the other larger rock tours that only hit the major markets. We have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a show that they deserve”.

Vancouver band Art of Dying have released a lyric video for ‘Die Trying’, which you can check below. Art of Dying is the first act to be signed to Intoxication/Reprise Records, which was founded by Disturbed members David Draiman and Dan Donegan.

The album was produced by Howard Benson (10 Years, 3 Doors Down, Seether) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Flyleaf, Stone Temple Pilots, Slipknot).
Bloody-Disgusting was given an insider tip from Warner Bros. that Disturbed singer David Draiman has an undisclosed throat condition that has forced the band to cancel their upcoming US tour. David Draiman will require at least 4 weeks of therapy and care before being able to sing again.

Please join us in wishing David Draiman a swift and full recovery.

Korn’s boycott of BP has started a ground swell of like-minded musicians intent on making a statement against the devastation in The Gulf caused by BP’s record setting oil spill. The following top touring artists have joined the cause and have committed to avoid the use of fuel sold by BP or its affiliates on their upcoming tours for 2010: Disturbed, Lady Gaga, Rise Against, Godsmack, Backstreet Boys, Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Slightly Stoopid, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Black Label Society with Zakk Wylde, Anthrax, Creed, Filter, Hellyeah and Flogging Molly.
“This is the worst thing that has ever happened to the environment in U.S. history. From everything we’re hearing about now, it’s become clear that BP cut corners to put profit ahead of safety. The message we are sending should tell all the oil companies to spend the money and take the necessary precautions to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” said Jonathon Davis of Korn. “I’m really proud that this many artists have already come on board, and I hope more will join soon.”
