BASSIST SAYS DISTURBED IS NOT REUNITING YET

Sorry, Disturbed fans, but it doesn't look like the band's hiatus is ending any time soon. Bassist John Moyer went online on Tuesday (August 5th) to clarify that he wasn't pulling out of a fall tour with his other band, Adrenaline Mob because of Disturbed being reactivated, as some fans speculated. Moyer wrote that his decision had "nothing to do with Disturbed," adding that he is finishing up production projects with two bands and has three more booked for the next two months. In addition he will be "overseeing big plans with my rock school John Moyer's Natural Ear Music School in the fall."

Moyer posted earlier in the week that he would not be appearing on Adrenaline Mob's fall tour, leading that band to respond that they were "totally shocked" by the news.

But Moyer, who joined the group in 2010 and has recorded two albums with it, maintained that Adrenaline Mob "has known for weeks" that he would not be joining them.

Moyer has been a member of Disturbed since 2004, when he replaced founding bassist Steve "Fuzz" Kmak. He has played bass with the group since its third album, Ten Thousand Fists.

Disturbed has been on hiatus since the fall of 2011, since completing the touring cycle for its fifth album Asylum. Singer David Draiman told us a while back that the band will eventually return: "Disturbed will reunite when the time comes. When we feel it's right, when everybody's in the right head space and we're feeling re-inspired and we're ready to go back at it and the itch is itching hard enough, it'll happen."

Draiman introduced a new band called Device last year and toured behind it, while scoring a Number One rock single with the song "Vilify."

Guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren also premiered a new project called Fight Or Flight.
