RICHARD PATRICK Says New FILTER Album Is Shaping Up To Be 'Really Different' And 'Original Sounding'
On March 17, Shabby Hasan of All Access Live conducted an interview with FILTER mainman Richard Patrick at the Cotillion Ballroom in Wichita, Kansas. You can now watch the chat below. Speaking about the progress of the recording sessions for FILTER's new album, Richard said: "I wanted to release something maybe towards the end of this summer. I'm hoping that could be the case. But, you know, I'm developing a completely new sound for the band — [what I like to call] 'new industrial.'" He continued: "I mean, I hate genres, and I guess creating a new genre is kind of where I'm at. "FILTER's always been so hard to place. And for people, [some of them are], like, 'I like the rock,' and [others are, like], 'I like the mellow stuff.' And so this is a complete… There are several songs that sound straight-up industrial, like old FILTER, and I have to stay true to that sound as well, but it's so important to venture forward and recognize that we're in 2015." Patrick added: "When you're creating something brand new, you really have to be honest and very on point on your criticism of it, or your style, or whatever. So it seems like it might be a little bit longer than the summer… You don't wanna rush anything. We did just release 'The Sun Comes Out Tonight' [in 2013], and I'm really proud of that record. But I'm always… When I go home, I'm always trying to continue to write as much as I can. I've done a lot of thinking and I just… "Oumi [Kapila, new FILTER guitarist] and I have hit up a good songwriting approach, and it's very… it's really a lot of sound design, a lot of new things that you haven't really heard FILTER do, and I don't think anyone's really done it. But… So it's a really, really different, original-sounding thing, and I really love it." Guitarist Jonny Radtke announced his departure from FILTER in early March, explaining in a tweet that he has decided "to pursue other musical interests." FILTER's sixth studio album, "The Sun Comes Out Tonight", was released on June 4, 2013 via Wind-Up Records. The CD was recorded in Los Angeles at Blue Room studios with producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, ATREYU, SALIVA). The follow-up to 2010's "The Trouble With Angels" was written and recorded by Patrick and Radtke, as well as collaborator Marlette. There are also performances from touring members Jeff Friedl and Elias Mallin (drums) and Phil Buckman (bass).
MEGADETH Indirectly Confirms CHRIS ADLER As Drummer For New Studio Album
MEGADETH's official Facebook page has been updated with a photo of what is unmistakably LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler wearing a MEGADETH shirt, indirectly confirming rumors — as exclusively reported by BLABBERMOUTH.NET on March 14 — that Adler is laying down drums for MEGADETH's new album. Adler's involvement with MEGADETH will apparently be limited to studio work only, and he is not be expected to join the band on the road to promote the effort, which is currently being recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and Adler were photographed last week having a discussion at what appeared to be a fast-food restaurant or a coffee shop in Tennessee. In addition to Mustaine, Adler and bassist David Ellefson, the recording lineup for MEGADETH's new album is rumored to include Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA. MEGADETH has yet to officially announce replacements for drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick, who quit the group last year. The band was still finalizing the recording lineup for its new album earlier in the month, with Mustaine tweeting on March 10 that he was "excited to be auditioning one of my final picks for my new guitarist today."
