Filter will launch a North American tour with the legendary metal act Helmet and Chicago alternative rock duo Local H, running from July 12 to August 14. Filter will complete three festivals before the start of the tour; full dates are available through the Filter website. After the tour, Filter will begin work on new music. The news broke through Filter and former Filter bandmate Geno Lenardo (also of Chemlab and Device), who will rejoin Filter for the tour and new music. Lenardo recently wrote on Facebook, “Rich and I have finished a great week of writing. Jonny Radtke is bringing his enormous talent and heart to the table to up the ante. A lot more to come. We will be back in tracking in LA in September.” Lenardo became Filter’s lead guitarist and Richard Patrick’s primary collaborator until his departure in 2003 after The Amalgamut.
Filter has released six studio albums since 1993, with The Sun Comes Out Tonight released June 2013. The band released its single “Surprise” in October 2013.
