Disturbed’s Upcoming Album Indestructible Now Available for Pre-Order at BestBuy.com
Fans pre-ordering Indestructible will receive two free album tracks to play on “Rock Band” for Xbox 360
Indestructible, the forthcoming album from best-selling hard-rock band Disturbed, is now available for pre-order at BestBuy.com. The album, which was self-produced and is the follow-up to the Chicago quartet’s 2005 platinum-certified Ten Thousand Fists, will be released by Reprise Records on June 3rd, 2008.
Leading consumer electronics and entertainment retailer Best Buy has partnered for the first time ever with MTV Games and Hamonix, the makers of “Rock Band,” the best-selling music video game created for the Xbox 360. Fans pre-ordering the album at www.BestBuy.com/disturbed will receive instructions to download two free Disturbed tracks from “Indestructible” for Rock Band from Xbox LIVE: “Indestructible” and “Inside the Fire.” The latter is the band’s sixth Number One single at Active Rock, and the band’s fastest-rising chart-topper to date. Disturbed will also be featured as Xbox LIVE’s “Artist of the Month” for June.
“We believe fans of Disturbed will be excited about the exclusive access to the new album and bonus Rock Band tracks for Xbox 360,” said Jennifer Schaidler, vice president of music for Best Buy. “This special offer is one of many unique ways that Best Buy brings music fans and gamers the latest and coolest entertainment experiences.”
“We’re very excited to be working with Disturbed to bring their music to Rock Band,” stated Paul DeGooyer, SVP Electronic Games and Music, MTV. “Our partnership with Best Buy, Microsoft and Reprise has created a very cool way to introduce the new album, while delivering a fantastic value to fans of Disturbed and Rock Band alike.”
"As we grow and evolve our presence in the music space, Xbox LIVE is excited to work with publishing and retail partners to connect people with the music they love," Xbox LIVE Director of Marketing Bill Nielson explains. “Giving our Xbox LIVE members this type of great content from partners like Best Buy is why our community has more than 10 million members worldwide.”
Disturbed, which is singer David Draiman, guitar player Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bass player John Moyer, has sold a collective 10 million copies worldwide of their three albums — 2000’s RIAA-certified triple-platinum The Sickness, 2002’s album chart-topper Believe, and their second consecutive Number One Ten Thousand Fists — since forming in Chicago in 1996. The band is currently on tour leading up to the album release, and this summer will co-headline the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival.
