“Hey You,” the aggressive new single released by multiplatinum hard rockers Disturbed on Thursday, sounds … like a Disturbed song.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the Chicago-based alt/metal band’s career, which has been as consistent as they come 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.

The band’s commitment to itself has helped make Disturbed an enduring player on the hard rock scene globally, playing venues around the world and maintaining a strong audience all the while. That ought to continue with this new era, as “Hey You” is a typically hard-charging and arena-ready anthem released to the masses:

Said Disturbed main man David Draiman of the song and its message:

“It’s a wake up call. We’ve become our own worst enemies. Civil discourse has become the exception instead of the norm. People have lost themselves in outrage addiction.”

Also part of Disturbed’s commitment to its vision is the single artwork, which again features a menacing demon-like face, long a calling card of the band’s visual aesthetic:
