Filter Yummies 2011, Part 2

To the second part of our 2011 Filter stuffs blog (check the 1st part here) we've collected links to some of the best interviews, show reviews, and most gorgeous photos we've seen regarding Filter last year. Enjoy! Note that you will also find several video interviews 2011 on our Youtube channel.

We start with Little Rat Bastard's interview with Richard Patrick in March. Great photos in there, too!

Guitarist Rob Patterson gave an interview to Whips and Chords.
Rob Patterson-Filter, Sex Tips & Charlie Sheen

"The band’s name “Filter” came from just the overall functionality of the brain. Everybody’s brain is a filter."
Q&A with Richard Patrick of Filter on Zetalambmary Magazine. made an interview with Richard Patrick, Phil Buckman, and guitarist Jonny Radtke, who joined the band for the autumn tour.
Laughing in the Face of Madness – The Filter Interview

"I've actually started to laugh at myself, I just don't take it that seriously anymore, I just don't think that life has to be that serious, especially when you're singing and entertaining. The audience is like sitting there laughing having a great time. That, at the end of the day, is why I got into this."
An Interview with Richard Patrick of Filter on San Fransisco Bay Area Concerts.

"Filter might be popping up in smaller clubs these days, but its gritty, electric majesty hasn’t deflated." - show review on PopMatters:
Filter: 3 November 2011 - Redondo Beach, CA

"Lucky for Orlando, Filter didn't get the memo that opening acts are supposed to warm up the show, not steal the spotlight." - Show review on Concertlivewire:
The Three Musicteers

"Being the headliner, you would expect Filter to be the talk of the show. Yet, the way Filter blasted through the setting, delivered the set they did, and treated their fans afterwards, a lot of other bands should have been there to take notes." - Show review on Columbus Wired:
Filter and Saliva Break Out of the Basement

After all the reading, why not rest your eyes viewing some beautiful photos. The first link below takes you to a collection of pics from Filter's show in Helsinki, Finland, June 17, taken by Marisol Correa. The second one is for a photoshoot with Gino Carlini.

Inspiring things await us fans when we start 2012: there have been rumours about a new Filter album, and some heavy touring is pretty inevitable.

Thank you all for the great 2011! Here's to another fantastic year of FILTER!

Filter Yummies 2011, Part 1

What an eventful year it has been for Filter and fans!

The handful of gigs in the spring, including the famous "punk rock show" at SXSW in March, was just the beginning: Filter had a total of four tours this past year.

The European tour in June had shows in Russia, Finland, Estonia, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. It was soon followed by the Under the Skin of Angels tour in the US, with Saliva, Anew Revolution, and Heart-Set Self-Destruct.

In September, Filter teamed up with Bush and Chevelle and toured all autumn in the US again until it was time for the Shiprocked Cruise. In early December, the band also made a quick visit to Alaska for shows in Anchorage and Fairbanks.

And right before the holidays, Filter took off for a tour in Kuwait to perform for the troops.

We made playlists of some great videos from the tours, check them out on our Youtube channel. There's a playlist for some video interviews as well. Thanks to everyone who've uploaded their stuff on Youtube for all of us to enjoy!

Let's not forget the fact that Filter also made an awesome cover of ZZ Top's Gimme All Your Lovin' for the album ZZ Top - A Tribute From Friends.

Both the album and Filter's rendition got some good reviews, a couple of them below on Loudwire. You can also listen to the full song through the little player at the end of the song review.

More delicious Filter stuff 2011 to follow soon, stay tuned!
