DISTURBED drummer Mike Wengren recently told Launch that the band has no intention of coming off the road once Ozzfest ends today. According to Wengren, the Chicago-based band is already planning its third Music As A Weapon tour for sometime this fall. "After Ozzfest we're supposed to go over to Europe, and then when we come back, we're hoping to put together Music As A Weapon," he said. "I don't have any confirmed dates, but we're hoping that's gonna come out, you know, November-ish through, say, February of '07, you know. It's gonna be a nice, long run."
Previous Music As A Weapon tours have featured bands like CHEVELLE, TAPROOT and DROWNING POOL in addition to the headliners.
DISTURBED's "Ten Thousand Fists" album has sold 1.18 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
