Filter have announced the hotly awaited Australian leg of their Algorithm tour, marking their first shows Down Under since 2014 (when they made the trip over for the now-defunct Soundwave festival).

It’ll also mark their first headline tour in Australia since 2000, when they toured in support of the prior year’s Title Of Record album. This time plugging The Algorithm – Filter’s eighth album, which arrived back in August of this year – the band will kick things off at The Croxton in Naarm/Melbourne on Friday April 5, 2024.

They’ll follow it up with back-to-back shows in Eora/Sydney and Meanjin/Brisbane over the weekend – Saturday April 6 at the Metro Theatre and Sunday April 7 at the Triffid, respectively – before wrapping up with another one-two punch in Kaurna/Adelaide (Tuesday April 9 at The Gov) and Boorloo/Perth (Wednesday April 10 at Magnet House).

Tickets for all five shows go on sale at 9am local time this Friday (September 15), with a pre-sale running from the same time this Wednesday (September 13). Head here for info on both sales.

In a press statement, Filter frontman Richard Patrick said of the upcoming run: “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.

“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.”
