NEWS YOU CAN USE! Filter touring and releasing new album, The Sun Comes Out Tonight on June 4th

Formed in 1993, Filter has consistently enjoyed commercial success over the past two decades. With the release of their first album back in 1995, Short Bus, it seemed that audiences were slightly confused about how to categorize Filter, but music writers would quickly label them as a unique blend of industrial and grunge. With their most notable and successful hit, ‘Hey Man Nice Shot,’ the album soared to #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and went on to sell more than a million copies. They continued to delight their fans with 1999’s Title of Record which featured ‘Welcome To The Fold’ and everyone’s most memorable Filter track, ‘Take A Picture’. While they didn’t exactly achieve the same chart-topping success after Title of Record, they continued to release more albums (2002’s the Amalgamut, 2008’s Anthems For The Damned and 2010’s The Trouble with Angels) and their success came from singles included on blockbuster soundtracks, such as 2012’s, Judgment Night, Spawn – the Crystal Method collaboration ‘(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do’- Little Nicky, Demon Knight, Stepfather, Anger Management, Crow 2, Girl Next Door and Cable Guy.

Here we are in 2013, as Filter gets ready to release their sixth studio album, The Sun Comes Out Tonight via Wind-up Records on June 4, 2013. The album was written and recorded by leader/co-founder, Richard Patrick and guitarist, Jonny Radtke, as well as collaborator/producer, Bob Marlette. The first single off the new album, ‘What Do You Say’, is now available on the band’s official site as a free download. The official track listing for the album is listed below the videos.

Filter kicks off their 2013 tour with two headlining shows (Niceville, FL on May 25th and then, Ft. Lauderdale on May 26th at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale). After those two dates, they’ll be on their Summerland Tour (with Everclear, Live and Sponge), see the Interactive video poster below. Their tour will include some select headline dates in between.
