FILTER frontman Richard Patrick spoke to Rock 100.5 The KATT's Allison Chainz about his recent decision to postpone the band's previously announced tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of its platinum-selling, sophomore album "Title Of Record". The trek was scheduled to kick off on October 19 and run through November 27.
He said (see video below): "Well, I have new managers, and they had a little scheduling issue with some of my scoring work. And between my scoring work and the touring, I have to kind of err on the side of doing the scores, 'cause there's way more people that are dependent on that than on the touring side. Because touring is a wonderful thing, but I've been touring for 30 years. I have this new kind of scenario with scoring."
He continued: "The latest movie that I'm doing stars Ryan Phillippe. It's directed by Brian Skiba. Their film needs to be finished very soon, so I'm just kind of, like, 'Darn.' It's a priority, and it's just because my managers on the music side are brand new and I think they weren't aware of that conflict, even though I had hoped that they would understand. So it's one of those things. It's a snafu."
Craft Recordings released a deluxe, 20th-anniversary reissue of "Title Of Record" on August 9. The album was remastered and was made available on vinyl for the first time, as well as on CD and digital.
FILTER's most recent LP, "Crazy Eyes", came out in April 2016 via Wind-Up Records.
