The Sun Comes Out Tonight
Filter always has a spot available on our show and their newest album, "The Sun Comes Out Tonight", was actually released during this program. Richard Patrick and his band always impress, combining a sound which is familiar yet cutting edge, state of the art in approach and consistently relevant lyrically. Each album, especially the latter more thematic releases, seems to arise from a flashpoint of emotions, political observances, a good dose of rage, critical thinking and occasionally a tad of irrational thinking too, only when absolutely needed to make a point, of course, all topped off by a dollop of justifiable righteousness. Simmer on low heat for awhile and voila! Visit online at OfficialFilter.com
Not only does Patrick take on the enemies a good Progressive should, the Tea Party, perceived Republican stall tactics, global warming, government aid, Benghazi and so on, this time he tries to get into the minds of those who are proponents of that opposing point of view. What leads them to such disparate beliefs from his? How can they not care? This new album is the result of the partnering of two musical minds, Richard and Jonny Radtke, a couple of guys who knew each other, but had never worked together. Join us as we feature the new album, "The Sun Comes Out Tonight", with two of its creators.
It's Richard Patrick and Jonny Radtke of Filter on our next ROCKLINE!
