After a seven year hiatus from studio recording, Filligar returns with their long-awaited and highly anticipated eighth LP entitled Future Self. With this powerful release, the band will not disappoint its loyal and rock loving fans throughout the US, Europe, AMEA, Australia, and Latin America. Mixing its signature “big sound” with lyrics exploring life and love, Future Self presents eleven original tracks, each one single worthy in its own right.
Filligar has a prolific recording catalog heralded by some of the most influential musicians, journalists, and cultural outposts. Over the past eight years, the United States Department of State has designated the band as cultural ambassadors — sending them six times on tours to perform worldwide as emissaries of American arts and aspirations.
Filligar is Casey Gibson (piano/keys) and the Mathias brothers Johnny (guitar/vocals), Teddy (bass), and Pete (drums). Together, they have produced a music catalog of over ninety original songs celebrated as a “breath of fresh air” by Consequence of Sound and “of prestige value” by The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers
They have recorded at hallmark analog studios (Gravity Studios, Electrical Audio), sold out the nation’s top music venues (LA’s Troubadour, NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, DC’s Wolf Trap, and Chicago’s Lincoln Hall) and supported GRAMMY-winning artists such as Counting Crows on their Outlaw Roadshow national tour, Alabama Shakes, and The Black Keys.
