Hightower And Jones conducted an interview with FILTER mainman Richard Patrick August 24, 2010 when the band played at 115 Bourbon Street in Chicago, Illinois. Watch the chat in two parts 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.
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.
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.
