DISTURBED is stoked about being nominated for a Grammy this year!
DISTURBED has already had a tremendous year with their album: "Indestructible" which shot up to No. 1 on the charts so quick they didn't even know what hit them!
The album featured three Top 10 rock radio hits and DISTURBED continued success on the road. That's not all, the band notched another highlight with their very first Grammy nomination! Yes it's true, DISTURBED is nominated for a Grammy and they're all super excited about it! As the song "Inside The Fire" got the nod for best hard rock performance, Singer David Draiman told The Pulse of Radio he's thrilled to be in the running! "I'm very, very happy about it and keeping my fingers crossed, and any other appendages I may be able to cross" said Draiman. He went on to say, "We hopefully have a chance at winning this thing! We will be on the road but we are making time specifically to be able to attend the awards."
Although many of the rock winners are announced earlier in the evening and not shown on television, Draiman added that he's still looking forward to attending his first Grammy Awards ceremony! "I'd like to at least experience it once, to say that I was bored out of my mind," he joked. "I'm sure that there's going to be much of it which is a little bit of a yawn, but I'd really like to just take in the experience."
DISTURBED is competing in the "Hard Rock" category against ROB ZOMBIE, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE MARS VOLTA, and JUDAS PRIEST!
The 51st annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 8, 2009) at 8 p.m. ET. DISTURBED is currently on a U.S. trek that brings the band to Midland, Texas on Thursday February 5, 2009; which is today.
The fourth edition of DISTURBED's Music As A Weapon tour begins on March 20th in Madison, Wisconsin, and stretches into mid-May with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, LACUNA COIL, and some band that goes by the name of CHIMAIRA.
