The Amalgamut is the third studio album by industrial rock band Filter released in 2002 on Reprise Records. It includes the hit single "Where Do We Go from Here". Sales of the album stalled at 90,000 copies upon lead singer Richard Patrick entering a rehab facility. The song "The Only Way (Is the Wrong Way)" was used in a Hummer commercial.[6]

This was the last album to feature Geno Lenardo, Frank Cavanagh and Steve Gillis.[7]

Release and promotion

On the eve of the beginning of the touring in support of the album, Patrick cancelled all tour dates in order to enter drug rehabilitation.[8]
