DISTURBED ASKS FANS TO CHOOSE THE SOUND OF NEW SINGLE
Disturbed has revealed that the band has completed work on its seventh studio album. The quartet has also launched an online poll to collect public opinion regarding the type of track that should be unveiled as the first taste of the group’s new music. The two choices provided in the poll are: “Heavy” and “Ballad.”
The band wrote online, “The new record is done! The new album includes many styles of music. Since our last album and the recent footage from the studio, we’ve seen a lot of discussion about the evolution of our new music. Disturbed Ones, we have decided to embrace the debate. For our next single — what kind of sound do you want it to be?”

ALICE IN CHAINS BASSIST SAYS NEW ALBUM IS ‘ONE OF MY FAVORITES’
Alice In Chains bassist Mike Inez said in an interview with France’s United Rock Nations that the band’s upcoming album, Rainier Fog, is one of his favorites, explaining, “Records are like signposts in your career, and this is where we’re at in 2018. We don’t think about it too much — we don’t go, ‘Oh, we’ve gotta do a record like this,’ or, ‘We’ve gotta do a record like that.’ There’s a filtering process — everybody throws their riffs and stuff in the meat grinder, or coffee machine, and 10 songs drip out of that over the course of a year.”
Inez added, “We approach it the same — we just plug our guitars in the f**king amplifiers, and everything kind of turns out all right for us, so we’ve learned to trust that, and it’s cool. I love this record; it’s one of my favorites, actually.”

SIXX: A.M. AND FORMER GUNS N’ ROSES GUITARIST ARRESTED FOR DUI
Sixx: A..M. and ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba was arrested on Friday (July 27th) on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, according to TMZ. The 45-year-old musician was pulled over in Fairbury, Illinois for blowing a stop sign. Officers on the scene gave him field sobriety tests after he showed signs of impairment, and he was arrested and taken to jail after reportedly failing the tests.
Ashba, who lives in Las Vegas, was raised in Fairbury, where he returned over the weekend to attend the 29th running of the Prairie Dirt Classic at Fairbury American Legion Speedway. He also reportedly performed the U.S. national anthem at the event on the 28th, meaning he did not spend a lot of time behind bars.
Ashba took to his Facebook page on Sunday (July 29th) to write, “It was so nice to chill back home for a few and reset. Thank you to everyone in my hometown of Fairbury for having me out to perform the National Anthem for ya’ll. It was an honor!”
