FILTER Frontman Checks Into Rehab, Band Cancel Tour

FILTER frontman Richard Patrick voluntarily checked himself into rehab over the weekend, and the band have cancelled all touring activities through the end of the year. The group's Rellim Tour was due to start this week. There are no plans to reschedule the shows, but fans will be able to get refunds at the point of purchase.

In a statement, Patrick said: "I want to apologize to all my friends and fans for having to cancel these upcoming shows, but right now I'm concerned about my health and want to get back into the best physical and mental condition to go back on the road next year."
