Sometimes even rock stars want to talk for no other reason than to communicate with the outside world. Prepare for the intimate with this artist, man.

Richard Patrick (vocals), Oumi Kapila (guitar), Ashley Dzerigian (bass), Chris Reeve (drums), and Bobby Miller (keyboards) have a nice little thing going on in Filter. On Apr 08, 2016, the new album, Crazy Eyes, dropped onto the masses and the masses did rejoice. The band is out on the road for the Make America Hate Again Tour with Orgy, Vampires Everywhere, and Death Valley High.


After a few well-intentioned attempts to get Richard didn’t pan out, we managed to get our time and then some with the Filter frontman and creative force. He talked about the album, why changing the others around him was a good thing, and about the meaning of some of the new songs straight from the source. This is one of the most open and intimate interviews that I have had the pleasure of doing for National Rock Review. Richard is honest, blunt, and very real with how he approached some of the topics we hit on in this extended interview.
