Disturbed has released the second track off “Evolution,” and it’s a powerful ballad about addiction

Disturbed is gearing up to release a new album, “Evolution,” this fall, and the guys have unveiled a second track from the set. Stream the new song, heartfelt ballad called “A Reason to Fight,” and watch the track’s music video below.

“The message behind ‘A Reason To Fight’ is a personal one,” Disturbed’s David Draiman said in a statement. “We’ve all seen people that we care about fall victim to addiction. Dan (Donegan, Disturbed’s guitarist) sent me a rough idea for the song and it hit home particularly hard.”

“I know people who’ve battled addiction and have seen it in their face—the shame they have—feeling they’ve let themselves and others down,” Donegan said. “We wanted to write a song with a positive message for people in that situation to stay hopeful and not give up the fight, as challenging as it may be. It’s an everyday struggle, but there can also be a light at the end of the tunnel.”

“The chorus goes, ‘When the demon that’s inside you is ready to begin and it feels like it’s a battle that you can never win, when you’re aching for the fire and begging for your sin,” Draiman stated. “When there’s nothing left inside, there’s still a reason to fight.’ Hopefully, it’s a message that resonates.”

Earlier this month, Disturbed released the first single off “Evolution,” a fist-pumping rocker called “Are You Ready.” “Evolution” will arrive in full on Oct. 19.

Next year is slated to involve a lot of touring for Disturbed. The band recently announced the first cities for their 2019 North American “Evolution” tour. Check out the cities here.
