    ARMY OF ANYONE

    Ex-STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Members To Join FILTER frontman RICHARD PATRICK? - July 13, 2005
    Source: Blabbermouth

    According to a posting on the STONE TEMPLE PILOTS fan site Below Empty, the rumors of Robert and Dean DeLeo (both formerly of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS) joining FILTER frontman Richard Patrick have been gaining strength this week. Richard has been complimenting Dean's guitar playing in recent interviews, even calling him one of his three favorite guitarists ever, and in a recent posting on the official FILTER web site, Patrick makes a comment about rehearsing with his new band, whom he has shared the stage with only once before.

    Many people are taking this last hint as a reference to the October 12, 2001 concert in Chicago, when Richard joined STONE TEMPLE PILOTS on stage to perform the FILTER classic "Hey Man, Nice Shot". So far, there have been no official words on the new members of the FILTER lineup. All that is known is that Frank Cavanagh and Geno Lenardo have left to work with other bands and that Richard Patrick is working with new, but well-known, rock musicians.

    Same here! I hope it's true. There's no mention of Eric Kretz on drums though, and he was a big key to the STP sound.

    I don't know if I can put a lot of belief in this.
    I can see the DeLeo's starting a supergroup with Patrick singing, but actually joining Filter?

    It'd HAVE to be a supergroup thing with a new name but I'd DEFINITELY buy their record...

    This is kind of 'old' news as far as the STP community goes. There is still nothing official, but these rumors date back to early this year, if not before that.

    I was never big on Filter, but I liked a couple of their songs. I love Robert and Dean, so it should be interesting, since I always thought of Filter as a 'modern' sounding band, and the DeLeo's seemed to always be what was 'retro' about STP.

    Eric Kretz opened up his own studio called Bomb Shelter (www.bombshelterstudios.com). In that studio, he recorded a band named Spiral Arms (www.spiralarms.com). Their drummer got a career threatening injury, and Kretz recorded the drums for the album. Since then, Eric has official joined Spiral Arms as their drummer.

    It sounds interesting although I'd rather see STP back together (and G'N'R for that matter). It's got to be better than the "Talk Show" project, which this development reminds me of.

    regarding this topic...I just found out who the new drummer is. It's Ray Luzier from DLR's band. My source is about as close as you get to the horses mouth. This should be intresting.....

    Thanks for the info dude. I'll have to check out Spiral Arms.

    That's pretty interesting if that Ray Luzier rumor is true. That guy is one of my favorite drummers, and one of the best drummers I've ever seen in person.

    Default ARMY OF ANYONE

    The Newest Supergroup: STP's DeLeo Brothers Join Filter Singer In Army Of Anyone
    09.29.2005 3:27 PM EDT

    Band's debut LP is slated for release early next year.

    LOS ANGELES — "We should probably just let down the cover now," former Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo deadpanned during a break from recording at Swing House Studios earlier this week. "Thursday nights we get together at my place, we have a little card game, and I actually won Filter in a card game. So Rich really had no other option than to do this with us."

    This is Army of Anyone, rock's latest supergroup, featuring Filter's Richard Patrick on vocals, Dean and his bassist brother Robert DeLeo and Ray Luzier, from David Lee Roth's band, on drums. And while the band might not have come together exactly as Dean says, it is sort of true that Patrick had no choice.

    "The first musical experience we had," Patrick recalled, "they came over to the little studio in my guest house and it was like Siamese twins — they had guitars growing out of 'em. Literally moments later, [Dean] was like, 'Yeah, I think I wrote something on the way over here,' and boom, it was like the most beautiful music I'd ever heard. Within moments, we'd written this gorgeous song and we looked at each other and it was just like, 'Yeah, this is where it's at, right here. This is what we want to do.' "

    The song, titled "A Better Place" and set to be released on the band's debut album (which is slated to come out on Columbia in early 2006), kick-started a jam session that lasted some 12 hours.

    "We called it the 'Around the World Jam,' 'cause we went to Mexico, we went to Brazil, we went to Pittsburgh, a little polka, a little bossa nova, a little rock and roll, a little punk — we just blended it all in," Robert DeLeo recalled. "Just to be able to do that, to play together with someone and be able to establish that, is a thing on its own."

    The musicians, who knew each other from touring with their previous bands, also jelled on a personal level.

    "We all knew what we wanted and where we were in our lives separately, and to me that was the first step in getting together and actually calling this a band, which is a big commitment," Robert explained. "It's one thing writing music together and going through those motions, but actually committing to being a band is a huge thing."

    Especially when neither Filter nor Stone Temple Pilots ever officially broke up. In fact, since 2002's The Amalgamut, Patrick has been working on and off on the follow-up, although he clearly stated, "This band is my priority right now" as he sat with his Army of Anyone bandmates.

    As for STP, "Personally, I wrapped things up with my past a while ago and I don't know whether this signals the end, but it definitely signals a beginning," Robert said. "And I think we're all here because of that beginning."

    And for Patrick, Army of Anyone marks not just the beginning of a new band, but a new life: He's making music totally clean.

    "I can't believe how I survived on the planet for so long, the way I was living my life before — before this day, actually," he said pointing to a tattoo on his arm with the date he went sober, September 28, 2002. "It's been the most exciting thing in my life. I'm so glad I really have a second chance, and I'm going to take full advantage of it."

    Patrick also quit smoking and believes it's done wonders for his voice. And then there's the songwriting.

    "Your brain turns on when you get sober, so there's songs that are really personal, there's songs that are political ... I'm really, really proud of these lyrics," he said. "Lyrics were always the thing that I did at the end of the song, but now I really focus and make them perfect."

    Army of Anyone, a name Patrick said comes from "the naive hippie thing" of wishing the world was all on the same team, are recording their as-yet-untitled debut with Bob Ezrin, the mastermind behind Pink Floyd's The Wall and Alice Cooper's early hits. The music sounds just like a fan of Filter and STP would want it, with Patrick's soaring vocals elegantly balanced with the instantly recognizable DeLeo riffs.

    "I know it seems kind of like the trend to do the supergroup kinda thing," Patrick said, referring to Audioslave and Velvet Revolver. "But for us it's just the natural progression of where we want to go with our lives. And it's about chemistry."

    Dean then explained that trend.

    "How do you come from Guns N' Roses or Rage Against the Machine and find somebody to fill those shoes, with musicians that are that seasoned?" he asked. "You get Scott [Weiland], you get Chris [Cornell], you get Rich. Everybody kinda has to come into it at the same level where everybody else is. And we fortunately have the luxury of doing that with one another."
