"Back in the '90s, we thought AIDS was as bad as it was going to get, but things are so much worse right now. I'll tell you what, as a parent of two young kids; Sandy Hook was absolutely like 9/11 to me again. For all parents with toddlers, that was a scary day,"Filter mastermind Richard Patrick tells Noisecreep.

We're chatting with the singer/guitarist about The Sun Comes Out Tonight, Filter's upcoming new album, their first for the Wind-up Records label, when he tells us about a frightening story that happened to his wife this morning near their home in Southern California (March 29).

So this big Ford pickup truck pulls up next to her and the passenger starts throwing garbage at wife's car, and they tried to throw also throw stuff at her windshield. She almost got ran off the road in the process, cause they were so busy trying to throw stuff at her and flip her off.
