Disturbed frontman David Draiman is just starting to promote his new industrial music act Device, but also has some reassuring words for fans of his main group, which has been on hiatus since the fall of 2011. Speaking with Artisan News, Draiman said, "The beast certainly is not dead -- it's just sleeping for a little while." He added, "We're all on great terms and we continue to have a very, very huge mutual respect and admiration for another; we check in on each other's families."
Draiman also reiterated that Disturbed's current open-ended break was not the result of tension within the band, saying, "This was not a hiatus that was brought about by bad blood, this was not a hiatus that was brought about by any sort of legality or for me to decide to start a family or any of the rest of the nonsense that gets thrown out there. All the rest of the guys have families and we've been touring on the road with them the entire damn time. So one has nothing to do with the other."
