Disturbed also shared today a new music video for “Hold on to Memories” directed by Matt Mahurin, who also directed their “Sound of Silence” music video. The video is inspired by the Mexican holiday Día de Muertos,aday of remembrance and celebration of loved ones who have passed, and shares the sentiment that as long as we keep their memories with us, a piece of them is still alive. Watch the music video for “Hold on to Memories” here.

Disturbed have continued their record-breaking streak at rock radio, claiming the title of “2019’s Most Played Artists” in the Active Rock format. The band earned their seventh consecutive No. 1 on the Mediabase Active Rock Chart and Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with their latest single “No More,” an achievement unmatched by any artist in history. Disturbed have earned 10 No. 1 singles on the chart, including “A Reason To Fight,” the track that initially broke the record earlier this year. “No More” is the third top-charting single from the band’s No. 1 album, Evolution (Reprise Records).
Simply put, Disturbed are one of the most successful rock bands in modern history. The multi-Platinum-selling quartet accomplished the rare feat of achieving five consecutive number one debuts on the Billboard Top 200. That accolade historically elevated them to rarified air alongside Metallica, the only other hard rock group to do so in the history of the chart. Immortalized (2015) received a Platinum certification and spawned the triple-Platinum crossover smash “The Sound of Silence,” which garnered a nomination at the 2017 Grammy Awards in the category of Best Rock Performance. Since their formation in 1996, the band has sold 16 million albums globally and scored 12 No. 1 singles at Active Rock Radio. Their quadruple-platinum 2000 debut, The Sickness, formally announced their arrival as hard rock leaders, with that status solidified by subsequent Grammy Award nominations as well as Gold-, Platinum- and Double Platinum-certified records, as well as countless sold-out shows around the globe. Named “Best Rock Artist” during the 2017 iHeartRadioMusic Awards, Disturbed continue to boldly forge ahead with the release of their aptly titled seventh offering, Evolution.
Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, Johnny April and Jon Wysocki formed Staind in 1995, in their hometown of Springfield, Mass. Over the course of their career, the band released seven studio albums and eight Top 10 singles, selling over 15 million albums worldwide. Break The Cycle, released in 2001 and RIAA certified five times Platinum, featured the smash single, “It’s Been A While,” one of the most played songs in modern rock radio history, spending 20 weeks at No. 1. Staind is currently comprised of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Lewis, lead guitarist Mushok, bassist and backing vocalist April and drummer Sal Giancarelli.
