“Face Down”, the latest single from platinum-selling alternative-industrial rock pioneers FILTER, has just been made available digitally via Golden Robot Records
“Face Down” follows the release of “For The Beaten”, which was the first FILTER track to be issued by Golden Robot in October 2022. Written by FILTER founder Richard Patrick, “Face Down” is classic FILTER — a tight song with loads going on, including some killer drum fills and a restrained vocal delivery that seems ready to explode at any given point as the song progresses. The track 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, which 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 its 30-year career, FILTER will present “California Screamin'” — a full concert global stream performed live on location in Los Angeles. HITKOR will be the official on demand streaming partner for the show, which will take place June 17. The live performance will include special guests, classic songs the band 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.”
“California Screamin'” tickets are $14.99 and All-Access passes are $19.99. For this special engagement, FrontRow advanced ticket discounts are $9.99 and $14.99, respectively, and are available until Friday, June 2. Purchase only at HITKOR.com.
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. The band will be offering a limited number of “Filter Fanatic” VIP packages that include exclusive merch, signed tour posters, used gear items, meet-and-greets and photos with the band on many of the dates.
