Platinum-selling, post-industrial/alternative rock pioneers, Filter are set to release their much-anticipated new album, The Algorithmon August 25th via Golden Robot Records. The album, their first in seven years, is a tight conceptual statement heralding career-best songwriting from mastermind Richard Patrick and giving the classic Filter sound a modern sonic edge.

The variety of writing on The Algorithm attests to this being the freshest batch of songs that Patrick has dropped as one long-playing statement under the Filter moniker. This can be attributed to Patrick’s long list of collaborators – Zack Munowitz, Brian Liesegang, Sam Tinnesz, Mark Jackson, Ian Scott and Seth Mosely – with different writing partnerships contributing to an overall more colourful and creative patchwork, all unified under the vision of Patrick.

The Algorithm

  1. The Drowning
  2. Up Against The Wall
  3. For The Beaten
  4. Obliteration
  5. Say It Again
  6. Face Down
  7. Summer Children
  8. Threshing Floor
  9. Be Careful What You Wish For
  10. Burn Out The Sun
  11. Command Z 

Richard Patrick, the creative mastermind behind Filter, has spent over 30 years pushing the boundaries of musical expression. His tenure as Nine Inch Nails‘ touring guitarist and involvement in the band’s iconic music videos cemented his place in rock history. Patrick left NIN in 1993 to form Filter. Their explosive debut album, Short Bus, achieved platinum status, propelled by the breakout single Hey Man Nice Shot. The success continued with their follow-up release, Title Of Record, also going platinum thanks to the crossover hit Take A Picture.

Despite struggles with addiction and a stint in rehab, Patrick’s determination led to the formation of the supergroup, Army Of Anyone, in 2006 alongside Dean and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots and Ray Luzier of Korn, before refocusing on Filter’s output of later lauded albums, Anthems For The Damned (2008), The Trouble With Angels (2010), The Sun Comes Out Tonight (2013), and Crazy Eyes (2016). Craft Recordings and Rhino Records have been tending to the Filter legacy, recently releasing deluxe remastered editions of touchstone albums, Title Of Record and The Amalgamut. Now, after 20 years of sobriety and a seven-year break from his main artistic vehicle, Patrick unleashes The Algorithm, promising a sonic revolution for fans worldwide. The fight is on. Richard Patrick has got your back: “Revolution’s on its way / Never surrender never surrender.”

Alternative Industrial rockers Filter have announced a series of headline dates across mainland Europe and the U.K. celebrating the release of new music and the band’s formation 30 years ago. It is Filter’s first tour in the region in 8 years. “It’s been way too long since Filter has been back to Europe,” said Filter’s Richard Patrick. “Some of my greatest touring memories have been performing in the U.K. and across Europe. I’m so proud of our new record, I cannot wait to share with everyone over there.” 

The band head out next month playing select shows and are special guests on the Freaks On Parade tour with Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper and Ministry. The world tour continues into 2024 with headline dates in the UK/EU in March 2024. All dates are below
