Disturbed Singer Reveals Why He’s Off Tinder

Disturbed Singer Reveals Why He’s Off Tinder

Disturbed has been in rock headlines recently with the release of a new album, “Divisive,” and the band is currently on the road in support of the record. The album marked the band’s first studio effort in four years. 

Disturbed frontman David Draiman hinted than following the tour in support of the record, the band was going to ease up on live shows and/or touring

“Disturbed performances will be getting more and more infrequent,” Draiman said to Laser 103.3. “… it’s tough to navigate the waters right now. So we’re doing the best we can.”

With live dates potentially easing up, Draiman has been on the search for “the right woman” following his recent divorce. Apparently the singer was looking for love via Tinder, which he has since deleted calling the app “an absolute sh*tshow.”

“Holly f*cking dumpster fire Batman, @Tinder was an absolute sh*tshow. Scammers, grifters, fakes and phonies abound. What a colossal f*cking nightmare. Deleted it. Dear lord.”

One of Draiman’s Twitter followers wasn’t sure if it was the real singer that posted the tweet, but Draiman confirmed it was. 

 “Not fake lol. It’s me”, he wrote, before again replying to the fan’s apology: “All good. You’d be surprised. It’s hard for a guy like me to meet the right woman. I’ll tell you, it’s been weird so far. Lots of scammers. Trying to figure out how to navigate this new terrain.”

Another fan wrote: “Read: David Draiman can’t get laid anymore.”  The singer responded: “I can get laid anytime I want if I’m willing to drop my standards, but my standards are quite high, and I won’t dishonor myself that way. Looking for the RIGHT woman, not just ANY woman. Oh. And btw? You’re a dick”.

Draiman previously told Kyle Meredith about his divorce and said he was looking for solace in his music: “I just recently finalized my divorce. I just recently said goodbye to my Akita [dog], my best friend of 14 years. There’s gonna be plenty of inspiration for the next body of work. Battling depression, battling all the demons that normally come along with it. And I know that music — our music, other music like it and different types of music in general — is just the perfect means of therapy for so many other people. And it really is my saving grace. I don’t know what I would do without it.”
