      Bio

      Filter is an Alternative rock group formed in 1993 in Cleveland, Ohio by Richard Patrick and guitarist/programmer Brian Liesegang.

      Their first album, Short Bus, was released in 1995. The album was commercially successful, and included the hit single "Hey Man, Nice Shot". The song was somewhat controversial, as it was seen as capitalizing on the public suicide of Budd Dwyer.[1] Kurt Cobain's suicide was widely rumored to have inspired the song, but the band refuted this. [2] In need of a live band to tour the album, Patrick and Liesegang recruited Geno Lenardo on guitar, Frank Cavanagh on bass, and Matt Walker on drums. They would all later be featured in the video for the album's second single, "Dose".

      When asked about the direction of his music style in an interview with Suicide Girls on September 13, 2008, Patrick said, "Actually the stuff I’m writing right now for a record that I’m going to release sometime next year is actually way more heavy industrial, more electronic. There’s probably not going to be that many live drums on it."

      Patrick also announced a remix album to Anthems For the Damned on November 4th, titled Remixes For the Damned.[11] Remixes For the Damned was released on November 21, 2008 in the U.S. and Canada. The remix album was released internationally on December 1, 2008. The lead-off single was "I Keep Flowers Around".

      A greatest hits album entitled The Very Best Things (1995-2008) was released March 31, 2009. Featuring tracks from all the studio albums, mostly from Title Of Record. There are 14 tracks total, with some tracks being radio edits.
