“I spent a lot of time in the studio the last two years working on various projects and collaborations but at the core of it all, there is always Filter” says Patrick, “We chose ‘For the Beaten’ as the first single because it’s dynamic, dark, and heavy, just like the moment we are in. I look forward to working with Golden Robot and can’t wait for everyone to hear the full album.”

This release is the first for Filter under the Golden Robot umbrella with CEO and President Mark Alexander-Erber previously expressing his excitement at working with the band, stating, “We are over the moon to sign Richard and Filter to Golden Robot Records for new music, and working with him and his manager Marc Pollack is an honour. I’m more than excited to let the world hear the new music that’s currently being produced.’’

Filter’s last studio album was 2016’s Crazy Eyes.

Last month, Patrick joined his former band Nine Inch Nails for a special performance at the Blossom Center in Cleveland.
