Filter have revealed that their new album will be called “They’ve Got Us Right Where They Want Us, At Each Other’s Throats.” Further details are still pending.
Filter have signed a new worldwide deal with Golden Robot Records. Richard Patrick commented:
“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 have premiered a new video for their new single “Murica.” This song is expected to serve as the title track of the band’s upcoming album.
Richard Patrick told Alternative Press the following:
“The ultimate sin of the entire thing is that it’s poor people versus poor people. If Americans actually learned the real truth of what was going on with their finances, with everything that’s going on in the world, rich people have a stranglehold on them. It’s outlets like Fox News and Breitbart and the Mercer family.
It’s rich people that are keeping us at each other’s throats so that we don’t fucking see what they’re doing with their finances.
And it’s so obvious. Trump is just playing along in the game. He’s not rich. He’s not seriously wealthy. Like [2.5] billion wealthy. You know, he’s sleazy. He’s a bottom dweller, just like the rest of us.
It’s the people that are super-insanely wealthy that are really fucking controlling us. For the last four years, the right has owned the government. They’ve loosened up their taxes. They can pollute more. And they’ve got the right mad at the left. And it keeps us all occupied.”
He also added:
“The character in the video is a Trump-supporting, gun-loving, unmedicated, super-freak ’merican unhinged and at his wits’ end. And he’s trying to take control of something that is not out of control. And he’s afraid. He’s the super-afraid white male. The Trump-supporting nutbag that I hope I can reach.
These guys that are so far right that they think CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC [and] BBC are all out to get our President Trump. Like they’re all in a conspiracy to be super-left-wing, crazy liars. I’m trying to make an attempt to show them what they look like.
These are the guys that can only listen to Fox News and Breitbart and that type of news outlet. They believe every fucking thing that the Rush Limbaugh’s, the Alex Jones’ [say] and listen to only the right wing, ‘the truth, man.’
They ‘do their own research’ and believe 9/11 was an inside job, President Obama wasn’t a real citizen and the lunar landings were faked. Hillary Clinton personally went out and killed people in Benghazi and it’s her fault, she’s [a] criminal and ‘lock her up.’ It’s those people that I’m portraying in the video.
Who is the character aiming at at the end of the video? He’s aiming at anyone from the left and at anyone from the normal middle. The regular folks who make up the country that are pretty much normal and just want to raise their kids and stay COVID-19-free and try and make a living.”
After previously releasing a music video for the track, Filter have now premiered a lyric video for “Thoughts And Prayers.“ This song will appear on the band’s upcoming album “Murica.”

Richard Patrick commented:
“America is spinning out of control. It’s never been more sick, unemployed and especially divided. I love my country so much that I’m willing to part with some fans that might not like my message to her.
‘Thoughts And Prayers’ has become a meaningless catchphrase that gets thrown out every time something bad happens. Usually a mass murder etc. It’s an empty gesture. It’s time for more than thoughts and prayers. It’s time to wake the fuck up and start listening to each other.”
Filter will be releasing a new video for their new song “Thoughts And Prayers“ on June 18. Richard Patrick confirmed the news in the below video, while also teasing another new song titled “Come Take My Guns.” Both tracks are expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album.
Filter will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Title Of Record“ by performing the album in full at the Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA on November 27. This news comes after the band previously postponed their “Title Of Record“ 20th anniversary tour.
Filter have been forced to postpone their “Title Of Record” 20th anniversary tour due to scheduling conflicts. The band issued the following statement:
“Due to scheduling conflicts and deadlines for Richard Patrick‘s work in film scoring, the Filter dates announced previously will be postponed to an undetermined later date. Refunds will be given at point of purchase.”
Richard Patrick has confirmed that Filter are working on a new album titled “They Got Us Right Where They Want Us, At Each Other’s Throats.” The frontman was previously working on a follow-up to “Short Bus” with Brian Liesegang, but those plans were recently scrapped.
Patrick told Loudwire the following:
“reBus is noBus, or at least not-right-now bus.
Brian and I have decided to shelve the reBus album for right now for a variety of reasons, but know this…
I will be working on a new FILTER album called “They Got Us Right Where They Want Us, At Each Other’s Throats.”
Hopefully three songs will be on the new album that Brian and I wrote together, working titles being “Murica,” “Thoughts and Prayers” and “(Command-Z) High as a Muv’ Fucka’.”
Filter’s Richard Patrick previously reunited with Brian Liesegang and was planning to record a follow-up to their 1995 debut album “Short Bus,“ called “ReBus,” but those plans have officially been scrapped. The cancellation of the record follows the collapse of PledgeMusic, which the band were using to crowdfund the effort. Patrick will now be shifting his focus to the group’s 20th anniversary celebration for “Title Of Record.“ The 20th anniversary edition of that album will be released on August 9 and a Dub Pistols Club remix of “The Best Things” from it can be streamed below:
