FILTER Postpones 'Title Of Record' 20th-Anniversary Tour

FILTER has postponed its previously announced tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of the band's platinum-selling, sophomore album "Title Of Record". The trek was scheduled to kick off on October 19 and run through November 27.

The band broke the news of the postponement in a social media post earlier today. FILTER wrote: "Due to scheduling conflicts and deadlines for Richard Patrick's work in film scoring, the FILTER dates announced previously will be postponed to an undetermined later date. Refunds will be given at point of purchase."

Craft Recordings released a deluxe, 20th-anniversary reissue of "Title Of Record" on August 9. The album was remastered and was made available on vinyl for the first time, as well as on CD and digital. All formats were expanded featuring four bonus tracks: "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do" (originally recorded for the cult-classic soundtrack "Spawn The Album"), "Jurassitol" (previously released on "The Crow: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack"), plus remixes of the singles "The Best Things (Humble Brothers Remix)" and "Take A Picture (H&H Remix)". Both the two-LP set, and CD will feature new liner notes by author, journalist, and "Side Jams" podcast host Bryan Reesman. The expanded digital album also offers five additional rarities, including a live version of "Take A Picture", "The Best Things (Dub Pistols Club Mix)" and more.

First released in 1999, "Title Of Record" was a sonic breakthrough for the Cleveland band. Following four years as a touring guitarist for NINE INCH NAILS, primary member Richard Patrick formed FILTER in 1993 with guitarist and programmer Brian Liesegang. Their 1995 debut, "Short Bus", blended industrial pop with post-grunge metal, and became a best-seller, thanks to the hit single "Hey Man Nice Shot". Though Liesegang departed the band just two years later, Patrick enlisted two of his touring band members (guitarist Geno Leonardo and bassist Frank Cavanaugh), along with drummer Steven Gillis, to work with him in the studio. D'Arcy Wretzky of the SMASHING PUMPKINS and cellist Eric Remschneider (SMASHING PUMPKINS, VERUCA SALT, PLAIN WHITE T'S) were also collaborators.

FILTER's most recent LP, "Crazy Eyes", came out in April 2016 via Wind-Up Records.
