Filter announces The Anti-Folk Revival in Drop-D Tour with Helmet and Local H starts soon. Filter's previously unreleased track "The Hand That's Dealt" will be available July 29 through iTunes.
"Somehow what used to be heavy, punk, mean music called "alternative" became a rerun of "Hee Haw." Filter, Helmet and Local-H will help you get your insanity back. Come and get a proper dose of our thick and rich guitar sounds not a banjo," said Filter leader Richard Patrick. "Usually we take the summers off to barbecue and go to festivals to watch other people do their job. But we're still pumped up from our last tour and this tour looked like it would be too much fun to miss. Till the wheels come off, I guess," noted Local H. Filter released an EDM remix of their track "Surprise" reworked by Audrey Napoleon (Deadmau5, Avicii) on SoundCloud and iTunes. The original version of the track is available on the album, The Sun Comes Out Tonight, available now.

Matthew Sweet is working on his first studio album in three years and heading out on the road for three weeks of US tour dates taking him down the East Coast and through the Midwest (see below). Fellow '80s pop songwriter Tommy Keene will be the support act for the first 10 shows, including NYC and DC.

For this tour, Sweet will be performing material from throughout his career including his 90s releases, with such alt-rock radio hits as "Girlfriend," "Sick of Myself," "I've Been Waiting," and "Devil With the Green Eyes" through his most recent release, Modern Art. The touring band will include longtime collaborators Ric Menck (drums), Paul Chastain (bass) and Dennis Taylor (guitar).
