Disturbed’s ‘The Collection’ features hard rock band’s past five albums

With Disturbed fans going through withdrawals thanks to the metal band’s current hiatus, that guys are coming to the rescue by offering up a new package of music to hold diehards over until Disturbed, hopefully, get back together to record new material. The Chicago gents will unleash an adrenaline-packed vinyl box set called “The Collection” on April 21 in conjunction with National Record Store Day.

National Record Store Day is an annual holiday that takes place on the third Saturday of every April. The day aims to bring together independently owned record stores to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are released exclusively for the day, and hundreds of artists in the United States and around the globe make special appearances and performances at indie shops in support of the event, states Record Store Day’s official website. The holiday kicked off at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008, so 2012 marks the fourth annual Record Store Day.

A Record Store Day participating store is defined as a retailer whose main primary business focuses on a physical store location, whose product line consists of at least 50% music retail, whose company is not publicly traded and whose ownership is at least 70% located in the state of operation. In other words, this is truly a day to bring together the little guys!

The Disturbed box set, titled “The Collection,” packs five killer albums — their complete collection — pressed onto 14o-gram vinyl. Those albums include “The Sickness,” “Believe,” “Ten Thousand Fists (2-LP), “Indestructible” and “Asylum.” To pre-order this set, go here. (Photo credit: Anne Erickson.)
