David Draiman Explains Device And Disturbed’s Co-existence

From ThePrp.com

David Draiman has set the record straight on Disturbed and Device and their coexistence via the following update:

“MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, MY BLOOD,

I JUST WANTED TO CLEAR UP A FEW COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS.

1. DISTURBED IS NOT BROKEN UP. THIS IS A HIATUS (EXTENDED BREAK). THE GIANT IS SLEEPING, NOT DEAD.

2. THE EXISTENCE OF MY NEW PROJECT, DEVICE

https://www.facebook.com/Devicetheband,

IN NO WAY INDICATES AN END TO DISTURBED. ITS ANOTHER PROJECT, JUST LIKE MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN FROM TOOL HAS A PERFECT CIRCLE AND CORY TAYLOR FROM SLIPKNOT HAS STONE SOUR. ITS SIMPLY ANOTHER MUSICAL OUTLET THAT CAME TOGETHER QUITE ACCIDENTALLY,

AND I’M RATHER HAPPY IT DID, BECAUSE IT’S BEEN QUITE FULFILLING CREATIVELY. IT IS NOT MEANT TO REPLACE DISTURBED, AS NOTHING POSSIBLY COULD.

3. THE MEMBERS OF DISTURBED ARE ALL ON GREAT TERMS WITH ONE ANOTHER. WE MESSAGE ONE ANOTHER FREQUENTLY AND ARE SUPPORTIVE OF EACH OTHERS RESPECTIVE ENDEAVORS, (DAN AND MIKE HAVE BOTH BEEN AMAZINGLY SUPPORTIVE OF JOHNS TIME WITH ADRENALINE MOB, AND MY DEVICE PROJECT, AND WE’RE BOTH VERY GRATEFUL FOR THEIR SUPPORT. LETS FACE IT, I WOULD NOT BE WHERE/WHO I AM WITHOUT THEM).

4. THERE WILL EVENTUALLY BE ANOTHER DISTURBED RECORD. WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT, WHEN WE ARE READY TO COME BACK AND FEEL FULL OF FIRE AND INSPIRATION TO LIGHT UP THE MACHINE ONCE AGAIN. I CANNOT SAY HOW LONG THAT WILL TAKE, FOR I TRULY DO NOT KNOW.

5. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LISTENED TO DEVICE AND LOVE IT, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON THE ROAD,

AND FOR THOSE WHOM ITS NOT THEIR CUP OF TEA, I RESPECT THAT. I SIMPLY WANT TO SHARE MY NEW CREATION, THAT I AM SO PROUD OF, WITH ALL OF YOU, THE FANS WHO MADE DISTURBED WHAT IT IS, WHOM I RESPECT AND VALUE MORE THAN ANYTHING WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MY LOVELY WIFE…LOL. YOU ARE A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE AND THERE IS NO ONE I WOULD RATHER SHARE MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS WITH, (DEVICE, PRODUCING THE TRIVIUM RECORD,

AND WORKING W DAVE MUSTAINE OF MEGADETH)

YOU MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME.

ALL MY LOVE AND RESPECT,

-DAVID DRAIMAN

P.S. THE CAPS ARE A STYLE PREFERENCE, BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS. DONT FEAR THE CAPS, THEY’RE JUST BIG LETTERS, THEY DONT ACTUALLY EMIT SOUND. BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT…LOL.”
