Disturbed "Music As A Weapon" Tour of New Zealand

Highly acclaimed heavy metal icons Disturbed will be returning for their massive ‘Music As A Weapon 2011’ tour and are ready to annihilate arena stages in New Zealand this April, much to the satisfaction of their legions of fans.

Arguably one of the most successful heavy metal bands around today, Disturbed have sold over 11 million albums globally and are one of only three bands in music history to have four consecutive releases debut at #1 on the US Billboard Top 200 album chart.

Since the band’s formation fifteen years ago, Disturbed have had three Platinum albums in Australia and a strong fourth contender in their latest offering Asylum which debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album Chart and #1 on New Zealand’s RIANZ Album Chart upon its release in August.

Disturbed, comprised of front man David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bassist John Moyer, have garnered a devoted following over their extensive, wildly successful career due to their vicious live performances and repertoire of standout compositions.

To add to the mayhem, axe wielding metal band Trivium will join Disturbed at all shows on tour as special guests. Trivium have over 800 live shows to their name to date and are ready to show off their prowess again following their last visit in support of 2008’s epic release Shogun.

Trivium is a powerhouse of metal and their live performances burst with a raw brutality that will certainly leave audiences quaking in their wake.

Metalcore ensemble As I Lay Dying are also performing on the ‘Music As A Weapon 2011’ tour, armed with tracks from their new album The Powerless Rise that has seen them cement their place as one of the most groundbreaking acts in the metal genre.
