Platinum-selling, post-industrial/alternative rock pioneers, FILTER release their much-anticipated new album, ‘The Algorithm’, today 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.


Produced by Patrick and Brian Virtue (Jane’s AddictionThirty Seconds To MarsAudioslave), and mixed by Virtue, ‘The Algorithm’ is also a major musical statement, packed full of mini-epics comprising Filter’s signature hooks and soaring, anthemic choruses. But there’s also profuse angles. This is dynamic ear candy to both seduce and shatter speakers.

The triptych of singles released from the album to date highlights the deep form that Patrick and co. are in, from the metallic blowout of first taster, “For The Beaten,” to the sinewy, romo-rock boogie of “Face Down,” and the utterly mammoth current single, “Obliteration.” Other highlights from the most colorful patchwork Filter has created include the gorgeous, sun-kissed pop of “Burn Out The Sun” and the blissfully nihilistic and spacey, solemn closer, “Command Z.” 


‘The Algorithm’ is an album of many and varied strengths, with the band sounding as fresh and dynamic as they did on early landmarks ‘Short Bus’ and ‘Title of Record.’ Patrick says of the recording: “It’s been seven years between albums for Filter and during that time we had to deal with a pandemic. I juggled several film scores and other projects, but I can safely say I am really very proud of ‘The Algorithm. The amount of time I had to make this record gave me the opportunity to work with super talented new people, some of my former bandmates, and even allowed me to explore ideas that have been floating around my own head since ‘Crazy Eyes.’ This record is the best record Filter has made in many years.”

Currently 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. All dates are below.

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). Now, after 20 years of sobriety and a seven-year break from his main artistic vehicle, Patrick has just unleashed the highly anticipated new Filter album, ‘The Algorithm,’ promising a sonic revolution for fans worldwide.
