Disturbed Recruit Myles Kennedy For ‘The Sound of Silence’ in Houston

Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge became “Art Garfunkel to my Paul Simon” for David Draiman and Disturbed in Houston this week.

The Disturbed version of the Simon & Garfunkel classic has been one of Australia’s biggest rock hits of 2016. The song reached no 4 in Australia making it a much bigger hit than the UK (no 29) or the USA (no 42).

Paul Simon wrote ‘The Sound of Silence’ across 1963 and 1964. When Simon & Garfunkel signed to Columbia in 1964 they first recorded the song for their debut album ‘Wednesday Morning 3AM’ but remixed the song in 1965 to add electric instruments and re-released it as a single in September 1965.

For Simon & Garfunkel the song reached no 1 in the USA and no 3 in Australia.

Disturbed will tour Australia and New Zealand in November for Frontier Touring.

Disturbed dates

November 9, Perth, HBF Stadium
November 12, Melbourne, Margaret Court
November 13, Sydney, Hordern pavilion
November 15, Brisbane, Entertainment Centre
