DISTURBED'S DAVID DRAIMAN SAYS MUSIC BUSINESS FUTURE IS ONLINE

One of the most talked about trends of 2007 was the steep downward spiral of CD sales, with the music industry's revenues down anywhere from 17 to 22 percent for the entire year. The future of music seems to be online, and Disturbed vocalist David Draiman told us he thinks the major record labels should just go with the flow: "Instead of trying to encourage people to still buy a hard product, they should be encouraging people to buy a downloadable product instead, and increasing that marketplace and working that end of the marketplace, and getting more people involved in that end of the marketplace. Then they'd be pioneering something, instead of trying to maintain a status quo which is unmaintainable."

Disturbed's fourth album, tentatively titled Indestructible, is due for release in the spring.

Draiman recently said that this will be a heavier, angrier, more aggressive record than either 2005's Ten Thousand Fists or 2002's Believe.

Disturbed's tour plans include spring and summer road trips as well as a fourth Music As A Weapon package in late 2008.
