Eric Aiese of Billboard.com caught up with Filter frontman Richard Patrick to talk about the band’s new album ‘The Amalgamut.’ Patrick says the album concept grew out of his adventures on a cross-country road trip. While traveling the U.S., he began to appreciate the juxtaposition of fast-food culture alongside the local charms of the country’s different regions. “‘The Amalgamut’ is the American melting pot come to fruition,” he says. “We’ve melted, we’re together. As much as the country has homogenized itself, there are a lot of special individuals out there.”
