    David Draiman Has a Message for Fans After Sharing His

    In a new message, Disturbed vocalist David Draiman assured us he’s “not going anywhere” after the singer received an outpouring of support when footage of a tearful onstage confession about his mental health struggles made the rounds.

    When Disturbed play their 2018 song “A Reason to Fight,” he often discusses mental health with the audience. This week, he thanked fans after video from such speeches made headlines.

    “I just wanted to thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of support,” Draiman said. “You are all heard, seen, and very much appreciated.”


    The Disturbed vocalist added, “Much love and thanks to you all. Don’t worry; I’m not going anywhere. You all keep giving me #AReasonToFight.”

    In the video taken from a Disturbed show in Milwaukee, Draiman tells the audience, “A reason to fight. We all need one. The demons that are known as addiction and depression are very, very real. They are diseases no different than cancer. You can’t see depression. You can’t see addiction. It festers inside. It metastasizes, takes over your body.”

    He continues, “You have to write about dark subject matter. … Life is full of dark subject matter. And the only way that you can face it, and the only way that you can conquer it, is by looking it dead in the fucking face. Because whether you know it or not, sometimes darkness can show you the light.”

    During another show, he explained, “I’m tired of losing everybody I love to depression and addiction. Every single band member on this stage has dealt with those feelings, with those demons. And I miss the friends that we’ve lost. I miss Chester [Bennington], I miss Scott [Weiland], I miss Chris [Cornell]. And if I can be completely honest with you, a couple months ago, I almost joined them.”
