In this episode we are hanging with Richard Patrick, the mastermind founder of Filter.
Richard stopped by to chat about the bands amazing new album Algorithm as the band announce their First Headline Shows in Australia and New Zealand since 2000!

“Australia and New Zealand are two of the most beautiful and welcoming countries I’ve ever been to. Every time we tour, I push our reps to try and get us back there. Unfortunately, due to circumstance beyond our control like a global pandemic, it’s been way too long,” Filter main man Richard Patrick said. “Rock fans there are a very loyal and devoted bunch, and I know we will bring it when get Down Under. I really cannot wait”

Filter’s frontman and creative mastermind, Richard Patrick, has spent over 30 years pushing the boundaries of musical expression. Filter’s debut album, ‘Short Bus‘, achieved platinum status, propelled by “Hey Man Nice Shot“. The success continued with ‘Title of Record‘, also going platinum thanks to crossover hit “Take a Picture“. This year Patrick unleashed the new Filter album ‘The Algorithm’.

Live Patrick hasn’t lost one iota of his in-your-face, punk-meets-rock persona. He still “belts out the lyrics with pure energy and aggression” and his band always deliver an intense, in-your-face performance.

We chat music, fans, stalkers,autograph hunters, eBay and what he thinks of Gene Simmons

Its a fun hang, and we cannot wait for Richard and the band to hit our shores in 2024
