Disturbed Scores Third Consecutive No. 1 Album With "Indestructible"

Reprise Records Hard-Rock Band's New Album Tops the Billboard Chart, Selling More Than 253,000 Copies in Its First Week of Relea

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/11/08 -- "Indestructible," the fourth album from multi-platinum hard-rock band Disturbed, is the best-selling album in the country this week, debuting atop the Billboard Top 200 album chart at No. 1 and racking up sales of more than 253,000 copies in the U.S. alone. "Indestructible's" first-week figures have surpassed the first-week total sales of the band's previous No. 1 release, 2005's "Ten Thousand Fists," by more than 15,000 units -- an impressive feat amid a challenging sales climate in the music industry. Disturbed self-produced the album, which is the Chicago quartet's third consecutive No. 1 album, making them one of only six other rock bands in history to earn three straight No. 1 debuts with studio albums.

The band's two previous platinum albums, 2002's "Believe" and 2005's "Ten Thousand Fists," both debuted at No. 1. Disturbed's 2000 debut album, "The Sickness," has been certified triple-platinum by the R.I.A.A. with sales closing in on four million. Formed in Chicago in 1996, Disturbed has sold a collective 10 million albums worldwide -- a testament to both their talent and loyal fan base.

"Indestructible" also debuted at No. 1 in Internet album sales, and No. 2 in digital album sales, and did brisk business in pre-order album sales at BestBuy.com and Amazon.com, iTunes and the band's official website, disturbed1.com. Internationally, "Indestructible" charted at No. 1 in Canada and New Zealand, debuted Top 20 in the U.K., Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Japan and is expected to be Top 5 in Australia.

"Indestructible's" first single, "Inside The Fire," is in its seventh week at No. 1 on Billboard's Active Rock radio and in its sixth week at No. 1 on Mediabase's Active Rock chart with no sign of slowing down on either chart. Recently added at influential Los Angeles radio station KROQ, "Inside the Fire" is the band's sixth Number One track at that format and fastest-rising chart-topper to date. Disturbed's previous No. 1 singles are "Down With the Sickness," "Prayer," "Liberate," "Stricken," and "Land of Confusion." The video for "Inside the Fire" is currently in rotation on the Fuse network's main playlist and a fixture on MTV2's Rock Countdown. The band will perform the song live on Spike TV's "Guys' Choice Awards" airing on June 22nd.

Disturbed, which is singer David Draiman, guitar player Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bass player John Moyer, is known for its punishingly powerful music and Draiman's passionate, socially conscious lyrics. The band performed for the troops in Kuwait on March 10th as part of Operation MySpace, which has been streamed over 2.7 million times on MySpace, where Disturbed is the social networking site's most-trafficked rock band. On May 29th, Disturbed performed online at Deep Rock Drive in Las Vegas to a worldwide viewing audience logging in from 70 different countries, with a record breaking over 1.3 interactive events during the broadcast. The band is Xbox LIVE's Artist of the Month for June.

The band is currently the cover story of Revolver, Guitar World, Drum! and Metal Hammer magazines, and will also be featured on Revolver's cover next issue as part of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival Tour issue, and will be the cover of Metal Edge's August issue.

Disturbed is now on tour in Europe in support of "Indestructible," and will kick off a co-headlining stint on this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival beginning July 9th in Seattle.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
