New From Filter - The Sun Comes Out Tonight
June 06, 2013

Filter has released their Wind-up Records debut The Sun Comes Out Tonight; limited edition lithograph posters with purchase from participating record store day stores are also available (for more information and the music video for "What Do You Say" visit the band’s website or recordstoreday.com).  TSCOT is also available now through iTunesARTIST direct calls Filter’s sixth studio album, “…their best batch of songs yet. Maintaining the melody of the likes of Title of Record with the right dose of Short Bus-style vitriol and viciousness, their sound has been built up into an even more brilliant beast. Filter`s Sun is shining brighter than ever.” 

Recorded in Los Angeles at Blue Room Studios with producer Bob Marlette, The Sun Comes Out Tonight was written and recorded by leader Richard Patrick and guitarist Jonny Radtke, as well as collaborator Marlette.  The first single, “What Do You Say” is approaching top 20 on the rock charts; the video will premiere on VEVO June 6th on their homepage carousel. 

Filter will be on the road in support of the album doing select headline dates in between the Summerland tour which will hit more than 35 cities in North America (see below).  Filter, Everclear, Live and Sponge will be on the bill.  Tickets are on sale now and are available here.  Filter will then hit Europe this August.  You can get information and dates here.

Formed in 1993, Filter has enjoyed significant success over the past two decades.  The band released their critically acclaimed first album Short Bus in 1995, a disc Rolling Stone praised as "a timely combination of grunge heat and industrial ice." Fueled by the top 10 hit "Hey Man Nice Shot," the album rocketed to # 3 on Billboard`s Heatseekers Chart and went on to sell more than a million copies. They raised the bar with 1999`s Title of Record which featured the top 10 rock hit "Welcome To The Fold" along with a blockbuster crossover smash in "Take A Picture," a song that shot to # 3 on Billboard`s Modern Rock Chart, # 7 on its Adult Top 40 Chart and # 1 on its Dance Music/Club Play Chart. The years that followed saw the band releasing three more albums - 2002`s The Amalgamut, 2008`s Anthems For The Damned and 2010`s The Trouble with Angels, while touring the world and amassing a huge international fan base whose member’s number in the millions. Filter has also contributed songs to several blockbuster soundtracks, most recently their cover of “Happy Together” which was recently featured in the trailer of the film The Great Gatsby and has now sold almost 80,000 singles.
