“We were all given an extra helping of FILTH on this night. The guys were as amazing and outrageous as ever. Their devious and FILTHY little plan is working…..with solid ass kicking metal, these consummate showmen are proving one set after another that metal can definitely be good fun…. Why, be so dark and serious all the time? The more we see ‘em, the more we love ‘em, as they progressively move forward teasing us with just a little more naughtiness each show.” - Rose's Damned Opinion


“The band’s live show is something that must be seen to be appreciated and enjoyed. The band members, Eric Mann (vocals), Mike Andes (guitar), Mikey Vettel (bass) and Freddie Hull (drums), feel duty bound to put the fun back into a live music show. Their attitude and passion along with numerous stage props and skits enhanced their music, taking it up several levels beyond what has become the norm for live music shows. Witnesses to the spectacle Friday night didn’t even need to be metal fans to enjoy the show and end the night with a smile on their face.” - The Examiner


"These guys are awesome...you guys are always doing something crazy...over-the-top without being ridiculously over-the-top..." - Raw Talk Live


"One thing remains the same through the turbulence of my changing preferences: I am ALWAYS down for a greasy, grimey, angst-driven rock 'n roll experience. I was raised on an eclectic mix of 90's rock and jazz and somehow I always come back to the deepest, darkest parts of musical genre. F.I.L.T.H embodies this for me...a powerfully putrid escape that, against all that is known, feels comfortable." - Mike Hoy


"Eric’s unique singing to screaming vocals plus the music shows why F.I.L.T.H is so highly loved. Mikey’s bass line mixed in with Mike and Josh’s guitars sounded perfect. Add in Freddie’s drumming and it was amazing. I was blown away. They followed with “The Quiet Song” which took up the energy a notch. It felt like F.I.L.T.H wanted to make this the performance of a lifetime." - Bernard Cana, Dread Music Reviews


The crowd loved [F.I.L.T.H's new song I'm Drowning] and were jumping and cheering during the song. F.I.L.T.H got a well deserved round of applause when they finished. They set the bar that night for the remaining bands. - The Dread Music Review

Bio

To date, F.I.L.T.H has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such amazing acts as Fear Factory, Saliva, Straight Line Stitch, Green Jello, Hellyeah, Evanescence, In Flames, Rise Against, Killswitch Engage, OTEP, and Mushroomhead, as well as a number of incredible national touring acts.

The bands origins can be dated as far back as 2009 when Bassist Mike Vettel and Guitarist Mike Andes had already begun writing what would be the foundation of F.I.L.T.H. The pair enlisted new members for the project only to realize later the lineup would ultimately have to change. “There was a lot going on at the time…” recalls Mike Andes, “…the timing just wasn’t right for the direction we wanted to go…” The two then decided to put the project on hold.

Almost a year later, they were introduced to drummer Freddie Hull. “I was playing with Kevin Palmer (Trust Company) before I stepped away from playing….I hadn’t played in almost 12 years. By the time I was introduced to Mike and Mikey, I was playing in a local cover band…” For the next several months, the trio talked about putting it all together and in early 2011, headed into the studio and started to go to work. “Freddie came in and branded his own style to the chemistry that Mikey V and I already had….he just fit…” exclaims Mike Andes. Soon after, the three began the search for, what would ultimately be the next piece to the lineup. And it didn’t take them long before front man Eric Mann brutally filled the void they were searching for. F.I.L.T.H. was born. “I hadn’t been in any bands before. I had done some promotional work and what have you, but I’d never been in an actual music project. For about a year, Mike Andes had hit me up about trying out, but the timing was never right.” Mike Andes remembers, “I had seen both Eric and Freddie perform on stage and I’d already worked with Mikey V, so, I knew that the chemistry was there and the showmanship I was looking for was prevalent..…I just had to put them all in one room and see if it worked.”

Over the next year the band pressed on working, writing, playing shows and incorporated guitarist, Matthew Twifford. On September 6th of 2013 the bands first EP dropped. Although a five member band at the time, guitarist Matthew abruptly left the band shortly after. "We spent about a year writing with Matt, but things in his personal life were changing. So, he left to pursue other things....it was tough to see him go.." says Mike Andes.

The band moved on, and with their debut EP almost a year behind them, the word was put out. Not long after, in late 2014, guitarist Josh Lyons stepped in to fill the spot. "Josh is raw material…" says Mike Andes, "...we've already started writing with him and plan on hitting the studio to record our second EP with him next year.."

Pushing forward, bringing their music and their somewhat controversial and completely unique live show to fans of heavy music everywhere, you may enjoy it, you may be offended by it.... whatever the case may be, F.I.L.T.H. asks you only one question.

Will you be a part of F.I.L.T.H. nation?
