Filter are the latest band to tap into crowdsourcing as a means to bring their latest disc ‘The Sun Comes Out Tonight’ to live stages across the world. Launching a new campaign through Indiegogo, leaving their fate in the hands (and pockets) of their fans, Filter will be putting all of the funds raised through their efforts towards an upcoming world tour.
Update: Amazingly, we had the first-ever tie in the history of Loudwire's Cage Match. Filter and Nonpoint received the exact same number of votes by our deadline of 8AM ET Friday. So, with that, we have our first ever Cage Match Overtime. This match has been extended until 8AM ET Monday, May 20.
With Escape the Fate heading to Loudwire’s Cage Match Hall of Fame, it’s time for two new bands to go at it with their newest singles.
During an interview with Filter frontman Richard Patrick about the band's upcoming album 'The Sun Comes Out Tonight,' the musician shared an unnerving story about his wife. As Patrick's wife was driving her Prius, which sports a 'Ban Assault Weapons' bumper sticker, the singer says a car full of "God-proclaiming gun nuts" began to throw trash at her car, almost running her off the road.
After getting word earlier this year that Filter had signed to a new label and was working on a new album tentatively titled 'Gurney and the Burning Books,' the official title and release date have been announced. Now called 'The Sun Comes Out Tonight,' the album will be released June 4 via Wind-up Records.
