On this tour, the band will perform songs off the album, as well as tracks from their most recent studio release, “Evolution,” and their extensive catalog. “The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour” will run from mid-July through mid-September, with dates in cities including Tampa, Toronto, Cincinnati, Phoenix and Irvine.
Local dates include:

Disturbed’s tour will also be a part of “Ticket to Rock 2020,” an exclusive ticket package at select Live Nation amphitheaters across the country (additional details to be announced, for more: tickettorock.livenation.com).
Disturbed also share 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,” a day of remembrance and celebration of loved ones who have passed, with which it shares the sentiment that, as long as we keep their memories with us, a piece of them is still alive.

The band previously shared its live video for “Hold on to Memories,” directed by Rafa Alcantara. The video captures a moment during Disturbed’s live show where the band perform alongside a video collage of its favorite memories, with photos and videos of friends and families, both here and gone.

Disturbed has 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 its seventh consecutive No. 1 on the Mediabase Active Rock Chart and Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with latest single “No More,” an achievement unmatched by any artist in history. Disturbed has 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).
The multi-Platinum-selling quartet accomplished the rare feat of achieving five consecutive No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200. That accolade historically elevated Disturbed 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 its formation in 1996, the band has sold 16 million albums globally and scored 12 No. 1 singles at active rock radio. Disturbed’s 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.
Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, Johnny April and Jon Wysocki formed Staind in 1995, in their hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts. Over the course of its 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 Johnny April, and drummer Sal Giancarelli. Staind recently reunited for a few select dates, after a five-year hiatus.
About Bad Wolves
Bad Wolves consists of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-Divine Heresy), drummer John Boecklin (ex-Devil Driver), guitarist Doc Coyle (Vagus Nerve, ex-God Forbid), guitarist Chris Cain (Bury Your Dead) and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-In This Moment). They released their debut album, “Disobey” (May 2018), via Better Noise Music. It reached No. 22 on the Billboard Top 200, No. 2 on the hard rock chart, No. 4 on rock, and No. 8 on the top current albums chart. Their global breakout single, “Zombie,” is certified Platinum in the U.S. and Sweden, double-Platinum in Canada, Gold in Australia and IMPALA Diamond in Europe. The track has topped-charts worldwide, including the U.S. iTunes overall and rock charts, Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart, while also reigning atop the active rock radio chart for three straight weeks. The album yielded the follow-up tracks “Hear Me Now,” featuring Diamante, and the soaring ballad “Remember When,” which both reached No. 1 at active rock radio.
The official music video for “Zombie,” a tribute to the late singer Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries and an homage to the original, has garnered over 255 million views across platforms. On June 19, 2018, Bad Wolves presented a $250,000 check to O’Riordan’s four children, with a continued promise to donate all of their royalties from the song to them.
In 2019, they continued their momentum with a sophomore album, “N.A.T.I.O.N.,” which came in at No. 1 upon its release on the top hard rock, current hard rock and Billboard Hard Rock charts. The single “Killing Me Slowly” recently hit No. 1 to make it four consecutive No. 1 songs for the band at active rock radio.
