Richard Patrick started his career as a guitarist on Nine Inch Nails Pretty Hate Machine tour before leaving in 1993 to start his own band Filter with guitarist/programmer Brian Liesegang. Twenty years later, although he remains the only original member, Filter is still blazing forward. They enjoyed some smash singles in the 90’s with “Hey Man, Nice Shot”, “Take a Picture”, ‘One’ and an excellent mash-up venture with electronica pioneers The Crystal Method: “Can You (Trip Like I Do)”.
Catch Filter live in Rochester, NY at the Montage Music Hall June 18th as they tour in support of their sixth studio effort The Sun Comes Out Tonight. (Stay tuned to for an album review coming soon.
