Disturbed’s David Draiman joined Breaking Benjamin onstage at their Dallas show to cover Pantera song Walk.

It was filmed at Texas’ Gexa Energy Pavilion on their co-headlining North American tour, which features support from Alter Bridge and Saint Asonia.

Draiman also sang Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound Of Silence with Alter Bridge vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy at their Houston show last night – a cover which earned Disturbed chart success on both sides of the Atlantic after it was released earlier this year. Both videos can be viewed below.

When asked how he felt about seeing their version of The Sound Of Silence do well, Draiman said: “It feels great. Everyone and anyone is welcome to come on board. Music is meant to cross boundaries.

“I think that people have become genre snobs. Many people have eclectic tastes.

“Many people like to listen to all kinds of different music. I mean, I do – I’ll listen to many different styles inside a day, a week, a month, a year. It doesn’t matter. So why not?”

It was announced last month that Disturbed will tour the US with Chevelle this autumn before joining Avenged Sevenfold on their UK tour next January. They’re promoting their latest album Immortalized.

Breaking Benjamin will also trek the US with Korn in September and October.
