Platinum-selling alternative-industrial rockers Filter announces their first headline shows in Australia and New Zealand since 2000 as part of The Algorithm World Tour.

The Australian tour, starting in April 2024, follows a six-month-long trek that crisscrossed the United States and Canada, and then is scheduled to go across the pond in March 2024 and hit such countries as The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, and the United Kingdom.

“Australia and New Zealand are two of the most beautiful and welcoming countries I’ve ever been to. Every time we tour, I push our reps to try and get us back there. Unfortunately, due to circumstance beyond our control like a global pandemic, it’s been way too long,” Filter main man Richard Patrick said. “Rock fans there are a very loyal and devoted bunch, and I know we will bring it when get Down Under. I really cannot wait.”

This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the band’s birth. In 1993, founder and lead vocalist Patrick placed an ad in Scene Magazine in Cleveland, OH, shortly after leaving Nine Inch Nails as their touring guitarist, looking to form a band that would eventually evolve into Filter.

Patrick has spent three decades pushing the boundaries of musical expression. Filter’s debut album, Short Bus, achieved platinum status, propelled by Hey Man Nice Shot. The success continued with Title of Record, also going platinum thanks to crossover hit Take A Picture.

This year Patrick unleashed the new Filter album The Algorithm, which has delivered a sonic revolution for fans worldwide and has been called the band’s “best record in twenty years.”
