FILTER mainman Richard Patrick has commented on the reports that former FILTER members Geno Lenardo (guitar) and Frank Cavanagh (bass) have launched a new band with ex-ADEMA singer Marky Chavez. Writing to the Filter Discussion Group, Patrick said, "I've heard conflicting reports about this project, and whether or not it's true, I wish them all the best! We've had a lot of good times together and I hope they continue to make great music. As for FILTER, you'll be stunned at the new lineup!"
Chavez, who left ADEMA late last year, recently stated about the as-yet-unnamed new group, " I can't wait to let the world hear this new music. It's the best stuff I have ever been a part of.
"The band is located out of Chicago and we are taking meeting with labels and management! We should have a record coming out toward the latter part of this New Year!
"I really would like to thank all the ADEMA fans that have not forgotten about me, and they won't be disappointed with this new band and record.
"All things happen for a reason, and I am proud of what I did with ADEMA, but this new project is what I have wanted to do for a long time!"
