Is Disturbed recording acoustically after all?

Disturbed has posted a short video online featuring footage from the band's latest sessions at The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko. The presence of acoustic guitars and brush-stroke percussion in the clip might be confirmation of the group's stated plans to record an acoustic EP before moving forward on its seventh full-length studio LP.
Frontman David Draiman spoke a while back, saying that Disturbed has never been concerned about sticking with one musical style: "Call us hard rock, call us whatever, call us anything. At the end of the day, we're gonna be Disturbed, and we're gonna write the music that we write. And certain people are gonna like it, and certain people aren't gonna like it, and that's life."
- Draiman revealed a year ago that Disturbed was planning to record an acoustic EP, explaining, "That's something we've wanted to do for years that we just never had the time or the opportunity to."
- An acoustic EP now could capitalize on the success Disturbed has had with its cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound Of Silence," a massive hit that introduced the band to new audiences.
- Both "The Sound Of Silence" and the album it was included on, 2015's Immortalized, were certified platinum for sales of over one million copies.
- Immortalized ended a four-year hiatus for the quartet and was its fifth album to enter the Billboard 200 chart at Number One.
