ARMY OF ANYONE Frontman Looking Forward To Leaving His Past Behind

Chris Harris of reports:

FILTER frontman Richard Patrick's life has changed considerably within the last four years. He's sober — and has been ever since September 28, 2002, when he checked himself into rehab for alcohol addiction. He's married, having tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Tina Johnson back on October 29. He's moved from Chicago to Los Angeles. He's signed to a new label, and his new band, ARMY OF ANYONE, will release its self-titled debut this week. And soon he'll be singing STONE TEMPLE PILOTS covers on the road.

For Patrick, change has been a good thing, and the singer says he's looking forward to leaving his past behind so that he can focus on his future with some clarity — something he has been unable to do for years.

"When I checked myself into rehab, I didn't know how much my life was going to change, and every single day I'm surprised," he explained. "I don't really remember my 20s. I remember doing some arena gigs, and I remember screaming a lot. Some platinum records showed up on the wall and it was nice. But everything is new for me now, so I don't have any standard."
