ARMY OF ANYONE, the new band featuring FILTER's Richard Patrick (vocals), former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS members Dean (guitar) and his brother Robert DeLeo (bass), and ex-DAVID LEE ROTH drummer Ray Luzier, will release its debut album on November 14 via the new artist-friendly label launched by The Firm.
The new music company, with records to be distributed by EMI Music in the U.S. and licensed for territories around the globe, will take the unprecedented step of splitting all profits with the artists signed to the venture rather than the traditional royalty structure. ARMY OF ANYONE and multi-platinum recording artist and actress MANDY MOORE are the first to sign to the company.
ARMY OF ANYONE's debut album was produced by Bob Ezrin, the mastermind behind PINK FLOYD's "The Wall" and ALICE COOPER's early hits, and was mixed by Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, WHITE ZOMBIE, SLAYER, KORN, DISTURBED, LIMP BIZKIT). A radio-edit version of "Goodbye", the first single from ARMY OF ANYONE, is available for download at this location.
ARMY OF ANYONE will film a video for "Goodbye" on Thursday, August 17 in the Los Angeles area.
Patrick previously stated about the new group: "I hope that fans of both FILTER and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS will be as ecstatic about the music as I am. Although it is not the album you were expecting from me, I'm confident that you'll be very pleased with the result. FILTER will always be close to my heart, but ARMY OF ANYONE is my priority right now."
