DOWN WITH THE WAVE

Primary Wave has acquired the publishing catalog and master royalty stream of multi-platinum rock band Disturbed.

The latest in the pubco’s steady stream of acquisitions, the multi-million-dollar deal encompasses the band’s compositions and masters across their career to date, including hits like “Indestructible,” “The Vengeful One” and “Stricken.”

Also included is Disturbed’s first U.S. platinum-certified hit, “Down with The Sickness,” as well as their 2015 cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence,” which has been streamed nearly a half billion times and landed the band a Grammy nom for Best Rock Performance in 2017.

The terms of the deal give Disturbed access to sync, digital, licensing, name-and-likeness and other marketing and publishing opportunities.

“Over the past twenty years, Disturbed’s genre-defining music has broken down barriers with their iconic sound, instantly-recognizable melodies and uncanny ability to reimagine songs with an aggressive swagger all their own,” states Robert Dippold, Partner & President, Digital Strategy for Primary Wave.

“We are thrilled to welcome them to our family and cannot wait to jump in and do what we do best – build upon their legacy and continue to position Disturbed as one of the premiere Hard Rock acts.”
