Multi-platinum rock band Disturbed have announced their eighth full-length album, Divisive, out November 18th, 2022 via Reprise Records. The announcement arrives alongside their new single, “Unstoppable“, which can be heard now below. The album is available for pre-order/pre-save HERE.
About Divisive, Draiman noted, “Partisan tribal warfare has become a part of our regular existence nowadays. It’s one big battle of the cliques. The whole idea of the record is to be a wakeup call for everyone. Our society has become addicted to outrage. Music is the best cure for what ails us though. If only everyone reached out and used it. There’s no better environment to forget about all of this shit than live music. We can be together and realize we have more in common than not. Recognize what’s happening and let’s make a change for the better.”
Donegan added, “Whatever it takes, we’ve got to pull it together. We’ve always tried to take negative topics and spin them in a positive light. From touring around the world, we’ve seen the power of music as the universal language to bring everyone together from all walks of life. We can still play songs to unite people, and it’s a pretty powerful feeling.”
“Unstoppable” storms out of the gate on a jackhammer guitar riff, pummeling drums, and the band’s signature staccato vocal phrasing in lockstep with a pulsating rhythm. This barrage crashes into a skyscraping stadium-ready refrain, “There’s no escape. I am unstoppable.” The accompanying lyric video seamlessly translates this frenetic anthem into fiery on-screen action befitting of the track’s uncontainable momentum.
Draiman elaborated, “‘Unstoppable’ is definitely one of the heavier tracks on the record. The groove builds into a bombastic animal. It’s truly the fight song.”
“We always have a big rock anthem on every album,” Donegan commented. “We love to write empowering songs for motivation. We’re avid sports fans, and that’s definitely part of it. It’s an in-your-face track, for sure.”
