Industrial rock band Filter has released the new single “For the Beaten” via Golden Robot Records.
“For the Beaten” features Filter founder Richard Patrick with longtime collaborators Johnny Radtke on guitar and Elias Mallin on drums, as well as newcomer Zack Munowitz, who co-wrote the song and plays guitar. The song was co-produced by Brian Virtue and mastered by Grammy Award-winner Howie Weinberg.
A new Filter album is expected in 2023.
“We chose ‘For the Beaten’ as the first single because it’s dynamic, dark and heavy, just like the moment we are in,” Patrick said. “I look forward to working with Golden Robot and can’t wait for everyone to hear the full album.”

The single release comes a few weeks after 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 Trent Reznor had Patrick and other former and current NIN band members join him for a special performance at the Blossom Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where the band formed originally. The expanded NIN performed such staples as “Eraser,” “Wish,” “Sin,” “Gave Up,” “Head Like a Hole” and a cover of Filter’s 1994 hit “Hey Man Nice Shot.”
