Perennially unstoppable multiplatinum hard rockers Disturbed will return on Nov. 18 with a new studio album, Divisive.

The band has been previewing the record in recent weeks with a few songs, each as hard-charging, aggressive and classically Disturbed as you’d expect.

Here’s the title track, which was debuted on Friday and features the unmistakable vocals of David Draiman, always the most recognizable aspect of a fist-pumping Disturbed anthem:

Said Draiman of the song:

“The title track and the title itself are indicative of the incredibly fucked up state of things we are living in. It’s about how hyper-polarity has influenced everything people do in life. People are addicted to outrage. They’re addicted to finding the next thing that will piss them off so they can rave about it on social media. Everything negative was given a shot of steroids.”

Guitarist Dan Donegan added, ““David was in the room listening to me play the riff, and he fell in love with it instantly. It was one of the early musical ideas. It’s fun to be face-to-face, because we can feed off of each other and we see the level of excitement.”

Anyone familiar with the Chicago-based alt/metal band’s career knows how consistent the band has been since bursting onto the scene with 2000’s The Sickness (led by the iconic “nu-metal” hit “Down with the Sickness”). In the years since, the band has released seven albums, the most recent being 2018’s Evolution.
