Filter did in Iraq a few years ago. Would you be interested in playing shows for the U.S. Army only or perhaps other allied military forces as well?
Chris Hodges (vocals): Performing for the wounded
warriors at Camp Pendleton was one of the highlights of my musical
career. It was a special moment, because a lot of them had just landed
back in the states from Iraq, and they were so excited and welcoming to
us. I got to meet some very brave soldiers who lost their limbs only two
weeks prior, but the energy and passion they brought to the show with
them was unforgettable. I have so much respect for our military; I'd do a
tour for them any day, any time, any location.
Chris Egert (guitar/synth/programming): It would be a
real honor to do a gig like that. It’s refreshing to play to people
outside of the “scene” who are so enthusiastic and receptive to the
music, and a show like that would certainly carry more gravitas and
meaning than some stupid bar on the Sunset Strip! My little brother is
actually part of the National Guard and getting ready to deploy overseas
again this fall, so this kind of opportunity would really resonate with
me as well.
