ARMY OF ANYONE Schedules 'Rockline' Appearance

ARMY OF ANYONE, the band featuring former members of FILTER and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, will be the featured guests on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" airing Monday, November 20. The live show begins at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET, and fans are encouraged to call in with questions during the program at (800) 344-ROCK (7625).

ARMY OF ANYONE has posted its first video at YouTube.com. The clip is for the song "Goodbye", which comes off the band's self-titled debut album, due out on November 14. Singer Richard Patrick told Launch that the song has an especially personal meaning for him. "I'm in a program of recovery, and unfortunately I've had to experience a lot of loss in that program," he said. "A lot of young lives have ended in front of me, and a lot of great people that have a disease have died. It's hard to deal with. And it's just a very simple song about loss and having to say goodbye. It's not the easiest thing to do."

For the video, ARMY OF ANYONE enlisted director Scott Speer, a 24-year-old newcomer whose credits include SWITCHFOOT's "Stars" and TEDDY GEIGER's "For You I Will (Confidence)", according to MTV.com.

"When he walked into the meeting, I thought, 'Great, someone's junior manager is in here. When's the director get here?' " Patrick joked on the set. "And then he goes, 'I am the director.' But he's got a vision and he's talented and he knows his way around the camera."

Patrick got clean and sober just over four years ago, on September 28, 2002. He has the date tattooed on his arm.

The video for "Goodbye" was shot in late August in Los Angeles.

ARMY OF ANYONE made its live debut on September 20 with a surprise rooftop performance at a restaurant in Minneapolis, Minnesota

The band, which features ex-STONE TEMPLE PILOTS members Robert DeLeo on bass and Dean DeLeo on guitar in addition to former FILTER frontman Patrick, began a promotional radio tour yesterday (October 4) that will last until the record's arrival.

ARMY OF ANYONE will head out on a full U.S. tour later this fall.
