Disturbed Invites Fans Into The ‘Asylum’

Disturbed fans will soon get a chance to enter the dark world of the heavy metal band’s most recent studio album, “Asylum,” through a new online game based on the release.

The band’s fifth studio album was released in late August, debuting at the top of the charts. Asylum marked Disturbed’s fourth consecutive No. 1 studio album, thanks to the previous success of 2008’s Indestructible, 2005’s Ten Thousand Fists and 2002’s Believe.

The Asylum Interactive Experience begins Oct. 28, just in time for the year’s spookiest holiday. The Chicago-based group invites fans to “live it: commit yourself and your friends.”

In the game players are committed to the Asylum and challenged to unlock its secrets. Fans must try to escape the facility “in order to prevent a horrifying future from overtaking the world.” As a bonus players can win exclusive Disturbed songs, never-before-seen photos and more.

Fans can sign up to play the game now.

Disturbed was forced to cancel a short U.S. round of dates earlier this month because lead singer David Draiman is suffering from a “serious throat condition,” according to the Boston Globe.  Doctors recommended the singer rest his voice for “at least four weeks.”

In November the band heads for Europe to participate in the Taste Of Chaos tour. The trek kicks off Nov. 15 with a show at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, and wraps up Dec. 13 at Trent FM Arena in Nottingham, United Kingdom.
