Face Down with Filter

 ‘Face Down’ is the latest song from platinum-selling alternative-industrial rock pioneers Filter, and it’s available digitally now via Golden Robot Records.
‘Face Down’ follows the release of ‘For the Beaten’, issued in October 2022. Written by Filter founder Richard Patrick, ‘Face Down’ lets you know early on where it is headed and locks you in from the start without ever becoming predictable. It will appear on Filter’s upcoming album, that is expected to arrive in 2023.
“‘Face Down’ speaks to the hate and negativity plaguing the world today,” said Patrick. “I wrote it after being inundated with lies, deceptions, and pure vitriol I saw on social media. I’m pumped. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the full album.”
For the first time in their 30-year career, Filter will present California Screamin – a full concert global stream performed live on location in Los Angeles, USA. HITKOR will be the official on demand streaming partner for the show, that will take place on 17th June. The performance will include special guests, classic songs Filter has not performed in over 25 years and the debut of brand-new material.

“I’ve been itching to do a live stream since things shut down a couple years ago but I got caught up in the studio working on our new album,” said Patrick. “When Scott [Donnell, CMO HITKOR] came to me and told me about HITKOR, and then invited me down to see Ministry do their thing, I was sold.”

The celebration for Filter’s 30th anniversary began in earnest late last year when Patrick was invited to join Nine Inch Nails for a special fan day Q&A at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The following night NIN mastermind Trent Reznor had Patrick and other former and current NIN band members join him for a special performance at the Blossom Center in Cleveland, OH, where the band was originally formed. The expanded band performed many staples and a cover of Filter’s 1994 monster hit, ‘Hey Man Nice Shot’.
Filter also reissued their classic The Amalgamut, this year through Craft Recordings that became available for the first time on vinyl.

Beginning in May, Filter will embark on a six month-long tour crisscrossing the United States and Canada before a planned trip overseas to play in Europe and Australia in 2024. Filter’s tour plans so far include headline shows, festival appearances and a place on the Freaks On Parade tour with Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, and Ministry.
