Decription:
Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter's modus operandi since the release of their selfproduced
debut album, Short Bus. The album's rough-around-the-edges production consisted of
inebriated answering machine samples, lavish bass lines, and jagged guitars set to a backdrop of drum
machines punctuated by the unfurling of Richard Patrick's vocal prowess and signature roar. Patrick,
Filter's magnetic, profoundly intelligent nucleus and frontman jubilantly admits that his creative process
is unorthodox, whether he's staring down and conquering new technology or coalescing with new
bandmate and co-conspirator Jonny Radtke on Filter's current release, The Sun Comes Out Tonight.
Patrick believes in adapting and improvising in the name of achieving results, fully aware of what he's
rebelling against. He addresses his unconventional methods with utmost conviction in his voice, "Let's
break the rules, let's put a finger up to the establishment and do something wrong. If William
Shakespeare was alive today, he'd be using a word processor. He'd be copying and pasting. Does that
change things? Yeah, but at the same time, it's flexible and different. It has to be done." This perspective
is evident on The Sun Comes Out Tonight's lead single, "What Do You Say," an explosive track featuring
Patrick's rousing howl, hypnotic synthesizers, smoldering guitars, biting lyrics, and the triumphant
resurrection of the pulsating drum machines that cemented Filter's reputation for delivering a
distinctive sound unlike any other band in existence. Patrick laughs, "It's all drum machine, just like
Short Bus! I like that we're getting away with something that's wrong. There's almost this notion that
someone like Skrillex is less of a talent because his music centers around making a computer do
incredible things. Music is an interpretive art form."
"The Only Way (Is The Wrong Way)" isn't merely a stand-out track from 2002 release The Amalgamut,
it's an integral component of the career Patrick has fabricated with Filter as a truly capable multiinstrumentalist
and vocalist BLEEP-bent on releasi
