It begins with their smash hit, "Hey Man Nice Shot" and ends with their song, "Thanks Bro". The album really focus's on songs that reflect the evolution of the band's music, including "Soldiers Of Misfortune", from their 2008 album "Anthems For The Damned".
In addition to its studio albums, FILTER was also known for writing songs that appeared on a number of popular soundtracks including: "The Very Best Things" gathers several of those soundtrack songs, including: the savage intensity of "Jurrasitol" from "The Crow – City Of Angels"; "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do" the massive hit from the band's collaboration with THE CRYSTAL METHOD for "Spawn: The Album"; as well as "One (Is The Loneliest Number)" and "Thanks Bro", two songs recorded for different "X-Files" albums.
After a six-year hiatus Richard Patrick brought FILTER back to active duty with the release of the politically charged and critically acclaimed album "Anthems For The Damned", which was released last Spring. The band followed up with the November digital-only release "Remixes For The Damned", which features brand-new remixes of various tracks from "Anthems". FILTER is planning a hardcore tour and he couldn't be happier about getting the band back to gether and getting on the road to see all his long awaiting fans.
