Cadium Music Publishing's writer/producer, Kevin Churko, scored his first number one album with Disturbed's latest, Immortalized. Churko has written and produced albums that hit number two on the Billboard Top 200 album chart with Five Finger Death Punch's American Capitalist and The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell (Vols. One and Two), but until very recently, the number one spot had remained elusive.
Churko co-wrote on all the band's 15 songs from the album.
Disturbed, no stranger to number ones, has had its last five albums open at the top spot.
Immortalized has been partly fueled by the anticipation from loyal "Disturbed Ones" who have waited five years for a new record from the group, and the album's first (number one rock radio) single from the disc, "The Vengeful One."
The band will play one show this year, then begin the first leg of their U.S. tour in the Spring.
