Filter’s New Album Is Now Called ‘The Algorithm’

May 21, 2023

Filter singer Richard Patrick was recently interviewed by New York’s 94 Rock WOTT and confirmed that the band’s new album will now be called “The Algorithm”.

Patrick said the working title was “They Got Us Right Where They Want Us, At Each Other’s Throats”, adding, “The other title was way too long. And I don’t wanna be as divisive as I’ve been in the past. So I decided to just call it ‘The Algorithm’ ’cause if makes total sense to me.”

As for what inspired the new music, “America. Just social media, America, divisive behavior. We’re all in this together. The ultimate message is we’re all in this together, bro. We’re all on this tiny little planet. And it’s fragile, it’s being polluted, the people on it are fighting. We live a very, very, very beautiful life for 70 years or so, and then we pass on. And let’s take advantage of this time and work together and protect each other and help each other. And that’s the ultimate message of the record.”

You got a new Filter song earlier this month, called “Face Down”.

“‘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.”

Meanwhile, Filter is on a six-month North American tour before a planned trip overseas to play in Europe and Australia in 2024.
