Platinum-selling, post-industrial/alternative rock pioneers, Filter are set to release their much-anticipated new album, The Algorithm, on August 25th via Golden Robot Records. The album, their first in seven years, is a tight conceptual statement heralding career-best songwriting from mastermind Richard Patrick and giving the classic Filter sound a modern sonic edge.

Today, the band has released the album’s lead single, the speaker-shattering ‘Obliteration.’ The three-and-a-half-minute track shines through heavy power chords, classic riffs, and a soaring, anthemic chorus. Produced by Patrick and long-time collaborator Brian Virtue, ‘Obliteration’ was co-written by Patrick, Sam Tinnesz, Ian Scott, and Mark Jackson (Grandson, Bishop Briggs).

Patrick exhorts:

“Ashes circle the drain / and now it’s all that’s left / all that’s left of me / sink my teeth in the pain / watching the world go numb / and I’m just one step from obliteration.”

‘Obliteration’ is out today. The Algorithm is set for release on August 25th via Golden Robot Records.
