FILTER Mainman Interviewed On 'Mars Attacks' Podcast (Audio)

FILTER mainman Richard Patrick was interviewed by host Victor M. Ruiz for the latest episode of the "Mars Attacks" podcast. You can now stream the chat using the audio player below.

"The Trouble With Angels", the fifth studio album from FILTER, sold around 6,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 63 on The Billboard 200 chart.

FILTER's previous album, 2008's "Anthems For The Damned", opened with 13,000 units to land at No. 42.

"The Trouble With Angels" was released on August 17 via Rocket Science Ventures. Fans of the band's "Short Bus" and "Title of Record" will be ecstatic to hear Richard Patrick return to his industrial roots.

Rocket Science owner Kevin Day says, "I have known Richard for a good while and have been a fan of his music and the FILTER 'sound' since their first release. 'The Trouble With Angels' is exciting because it's a strong return to the sonically dark jet engine growl that FILTER invented and defined."

Produced by Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, ATREYU, SALIVA), the album's debut single, "The Inevitable Relapse", features thundering chords and an isolated bass line that both conjure and modernize FILTER's signature sound.

"People think 'The Inevitable Relapse' is about addiction, consumption, and obsession, but they're wrong," says Richard Patrick. "It's a love song."

FILTER released a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl single, exclusively for the Record Store Day coalition of stores on July 6, featuring "The Inevitable Relapse" album version and a Rob Patterson 666 re-mix on the B-side.

Richard Patrick has taken "Angels" to the next level both lyrically and musically, employing some of the best in the business for the current tour. The live band features Patrick on vocals and guitar, guitarist Rob Patterson (KORN, OTEP), bassist Phil Buckman and longtime FILTER drummer Mika Fineo.
