About the Artist
Filter was formed in 1993 in Cleveland Ohio by Richard Patrick and Brian Liesegang. The pair
signed with Reprise Records in 1994 and released their debut effort The Short Bus the next year. The album performed very
well commercially, especially the single "Hey Man Nice Shot," which probably remains the most recognizable Filter song to
this day. The song received considerable airplay and put Filter on the map among music fans. The group eventually settled
on a couple of other permanent members of the collective to flank Patrick and Liesegang.
Filter released their follow-up
effort to The Short Bus in 1999 with Title of Record. This album was also a success and featured the popular song "Take a
Picture," which earned a lot of radio play and helped increase the band's popularity.

would temporarily leave the band to pursue another project, but eventually returned. The group continues to tour to this day
and released an album as recently as 2012, when they put out The Sun Comes Out Tonight. It was their sixth album.

airplay on rock and mainstream radio stations and garnered Filter significant attention. The single was also featured on the
soundtrack for the movie Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight.
