OPIATE FOR THE MASSES will be supporting Filter on their upcoming tour.

The band recently signed a record deal with Century Media Records and has a new single headed to radio in support of their upcoming Century Media debut, "Manifesto." "Manifesto," recorded by two Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum producers: Ulrich Wild (Slipknot, Deftones) and John Travis (Kid Rock, Buckcherry), is set for a July 8, 2008 release. "Manifesto" is a propulsive mix of sheer hard rock aggression, soaring melodies and electronic experimentation. A track that will be included on Manifesto, “Dead Underground,” originally appeared on the Saw III soundtrack and exposed the band to a whole new audience.

OPIATE FOR THE MASSES' lineup consists of Ron Underwood (vocals), Jim Kaufman (guitars, synths) and Seven Antonopoulos (drums) with newly added bassist, Anna K (Drain STH, Revolting Cocks).

OPIATE FOR THE MASSES created a solid buzz and diehard fanbase with their self-produced debut album, "The Spore," and its slew of major tours alongside the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, My Chemical Romance and Seether, among others. They were also a featured act on the inaugural Taste of Chaos tour. Their latest touring adventure will be with FILTER, beginning on May 20th in Atlanta, GA. They will play a total of 35 dates with Filter.
