A 20th-anniversary edition of FILTER‘s platinum-selling sophomore album, “Title Of Record”, will be made available on August 9 via Craft Recordings. This expanded set includes four bonus tracks: “(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do” (originally recorded for the cult-classic soundtrack “Spawn The Album”), “Jurassitol” (previously released on “The Crow: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”), plus remixes of the singles “The Best Things (Humble Brothers Remix)” and “Take A Picture (H&H Remix)”. It also features new liner notes by author, journalist and “Side Jams” podcast host Bryan Reesman.
Upon its initial release in 1999, “Title Of Record” was a commercial victory, peaking at the No. 30 spot on the Billboard 200. The album also won wide critical acclaim — Entertainment Weekly declared that FILTER‘s “attention to melody and craft is refreshing”” while Rolling Stone praised frontman Richard Patrick as “the most expressive and daring of the new industrial rockers, the most willing to expose the vulnerability that lurks behind the jackboots and black leather trench coat.”

04. It’s Gonna Kill Me

Last year, Patrick enlisted fellow original member Brian Liesegang to make a new FILTER album together.
Richard has successfully led and spearheaded FILTER for the last 20 years, releasing many platinum records, including “Title of Record” and “The Almagamut”.
FILTER‘s most recent LP, “Crazy Eyes”, came out in April 2016 via Wind-Up Records.
