Industrial-rockers Filter will launch another series of shows next month
supporting their second album, Title of Record (1999).
After an extensive trek across Europe and Australia, the band will return
for a monthlong U.S. tour beginning Feb. 24 at the World Cafe in Honolulu,
according to Reprise Records. It's scheduled to end March 31 at the
University of North Florida in Tampa.
Filter also are expected to appear on NBC-TV's "The Tonight Show With Jay
Leno" on March 1, according to Ken Phillips Publicity Group.
The band has toured relentlessly behind Title of Record, which was
certified gold in December. In November, the group followed its stint on
the Family Values tour, which featured Limp Bizkit, Primus and Method Man,
with a two-week headlining jaunt.
Fronted by former Nine Inch Nails lead guitarist Richard Patrick, Filter
released their debut album, Short Bus, in 1995. It generated the
hit single "Hey Man Nice Shot" (RealAudio
excerpt) and went platinum. A collaboration with electronica duo
Crystal Method, "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do" (RealAudio
excerpt), appeared on the "Spawn" soundtrack (1997).
The band returned, after a four-year absence, with Title of Record,
which includes the singles "Welcome to the Fold" (RealAudio
excerpt) and "Take a Picture" (RealAudio
"I bared my soul on that record," Patrick said of Title, just after
its release. "The only thing that I can do as a singer is to pour my heart
into my music, which makes me real, which is what kids identify with."
Opening for Filter beginning March 3 will be rockers Chevelle and Oleander.
