Industrial rock band Filter has signed a worldwide recording deal with Golden Robot Records.
‘’We are over the moon to sign Richard (Patrick) and Filter to Golden Robot Records for new music, and working with him and his manager Marc Pollack is an honour,” said Mark Alexander-Erber, president and founder of Golden Robot Global Entertainment. “I’m more than excited to let the world hear the new music that’s currently being produced.’’
Patrick said: ‘’The new Filter record is less political and more of an examination of the human mind. We are way more inward after being locked up during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are happy to be signed with Golden Robot Records because we think they have a great future in music. We were meant for each other.’’
Filter formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1993 when Patrick desired to start his own band after leaving Nine Inch Nails as touring guitarist. Its debut album, “Short Bus,” was released in 1995 and ended up going platinum, largely due to the success of the single “Hey Man, Nice Shot.”
1999’s “Title of Record” also went platinum, driven by the success of the song “Take a Picture.” Filter’s third album, “The Amalgamut,” was released in 2002.
Patrick also formed the supergroup Army of Anyone with Dean and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots and Ray Luzier, now a member of Korn. That band released one album and toured the United States.
After AOA went on hiatus, Patrick returned to Filter, releasing “Anthems for the Damned” in 2008, “The Trouble with Angels” in 2010, “The Sun Comes Out Tonight” in 2013, “Crazy Eyes” in 2016 and, most recently, the singles “Thoughts and Prayers” and “Murica.”
