Industrial band to play Sick New World, Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple, Freaks on Parade Tour with Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper & Ministry
Alternative Industrial rock pioneers Filter today announced a series of headline dates that will connect several of their appearances on U.S. festivals to celebrate the upcoming release of new music, and the band’s formation 30 years ago.
Beginning in May, Filter will embark on a 6-month-long tour crisscrossing the United States and Canada before a planned trip overseas to play in Europe and Australia in 2024.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the band’s birth. In 1993, founder and lead vocalist Richard Patrick placed the ad below in Scene Magazine in Cleveland Ohio, shortly after leaving Nine Inch Nails as their touring guitarist.
The celebration of Filter’s anniversary began in earnest late last year when Patrick was invited to join Nine Inch Nails for a special fan day Q&A at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The following night NIN mastermind Trent Reznor had Patrick and other former and current NIN band members join him for a special performance at the Blossom Center in Cleveland, OH, where the band was originally formed. The expanded NIN performed such staples as “Eraser,” “Wish,” “Sin,” “Gave Up,” “Head Like a Hole,” and a cover of Filter’s 1994 monster hit, “Hey Man Nice Shot.”
Filter followed that performance with the release of their first new single in over two years – “For the Beaten.” The song was the first for Filter on their new record label, Golden Robot, with more singles to come and a new full-length album out later this summer.
Additionally, Filter will reissue their masterpiece “The Amalgamut,” which will be available for the first time on vinyl, next month.
Filter’s tour plans so far include headline shows, festival appearances and a place on the Freaks on Parade tour with Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, and Ministry.
The band will be offering a limited number of Filter Fanatic VIP Packages that include exclusive merch, signed tour posters, used gear items, meet & greets and photos with the band on many of the dates below. Check avails at www.officialfilter.com
