(Army of Anyone)
Welcome to 2&2 where we ask rockers
to take a short break from their busy lives to answer a few burning questions
for us. We kick things off with Johnny Hardcore's recent Q&A with Richard
Patrick about his new group Army of Anyone. Here's Johnny!
With the advent of the Super Group. Richard
Patrick of Filter likes to call the new side project he is involved with
a "Super Duper Group" Featuring the DeLeo brothers Robert & Dean from
Stone Temple Pilots and David Lee Roth's drummer, Ray Luzier. Their self
titled album has a release date of November 14, 2006 and we were given
the opportunity to interview Richard on how things are progressing.
2&2: What is your favorite song
on the album and why?
Richard: I love "A Better Place"
because that's the first song we wrote together. Also, "It Doesn't Seem
to Matter" is a great rock song. I love singing it!
2&2: Patrick, being clean and sober
since September 28, 2002 you say has helped you with your lyrics. What
is your feeling now when you pen songs as opposed to before that date?
Richard: When I was drinking, it
made everything I wanted to accomplish more difficult. I wasn't as clear
and present as I am now. Ultimately, when my brain was so soggy from the
alcohol, I couldn't be as creative.
2&2: Do you have or - when will
you be touring? The Army of One website has no tour info.
Richard: We will start touring within
the next few months. As soon as we get everything firmed up, we'll post
the dates on www.armyofanyone.com as well as on our MySpace site.
2&2: If all goes well with this
first release, what are the bands long term plans? You mention 5 albums,
Have you started on #2 already?
Richard: We intend to be around
for a very long time. We're constantly writing music for ourselves as well
as future releases.
