Disturbed’s Debut Album the Sickness is Certified Quadruple Platinum
The Sickness , the debut album from multi-platinum hard-rock band Disturbed, has scanned four million units and has been certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Released on March 7, 2000, The Sickness is Disturbed's best-selling album to date, thanks to such hit singles as "Stupify,""Voices," and "Down With the Sickness."
Disturbed are also enjoying the success of their current album, the self-produced Indestructible, which debuted at Number One on Billboard's Top 200 album chart in June and remained in the Top 10 for five weeks. Indestructible is the band's third consecutive Number One album, following their double platinum-selling Believe and platinum-selling Ten Thousand Fists, making Disturbed one of only six rock bands in history to score three consecutive Number One debuts with studio albums. Formed in Chicago in 1996, Disturbed have sold a collective 10 million albums worldwide.
The band recently released a digital-only EP, entitled Live & Indestructible, which is available exclusively via iTunes through October 14th, after which it will be made available through all digital retailers.
