FILTER mainman Richard Patrick has posted the following message to the "Rich's Words" section of the group's official web site:

"So a buddy of ours, Billy Morrison, called up Jerry Cantrell and I last week and asked us to go sing a couple of songs in his cover band called 'CAMP FREDDY' which performed at The Sundance Film Festival in Park City Utah. This band has had a lot of people involved with it over the years, everyone from Dave Navarro and Perry Ferrell to Melissa Etheridge and now us. Jerry sang 'Hey Joe' by Jimi Hendrix, I sang 'Whole Lotta Love' by LED ZEPPELIN and together we sang 'Man in the Box' by Jerry's band ALICE IN CHAINS. What an amazing experience that was, from my perspective I did it as a tribute to what ALICE IN CHAINS was all about and in honor of Layne Staley. It was great to be on stage with Jerry and to be able to sing that song with him. All that was incredible but now I'm back to work on the forthcoming FILTER record and I'm now working with Ken Andrews of FAILURE fame."
