Disturbed’s David Draiman announces debut date for Device’s “not metal” album

Disturbed vocalist David Draiman announced today that the much anticipated debut album from his side project, Device, will be released April 9 via Warner Bros Records.

Draiman, who has been on hiatus from Disturbed since 2011, teamed up with former Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo to write the album, which Draiman described in a press release as “not metal.”

“It’s influenced by early Industrial rock and has a dark electronic vibe,” he said. “At the same time, these are big, anthemic, and intensely melodic songs. It’s futuristic rock.”

Device could be labeled as a rock “supergroup” after snagging Evanescence drummer Will Hope and Dope/Eve to Adam guitarist Virus. The debut album will also feature collaborations with Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, Deep Purple vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes, Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows, Serj Tankian of System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and Halestorm’s Lizzy Hale.

Device’s first single “Vilify” is reported to hit radio on Feb. 19.
