“For the Beaten” is the latest single from platinum-selling alternative-industrial rock band Filter and will be available digitally October 14 via Golden Robot Records. 

This release is nothing short of classic Filter and exactly what hardcore fans of the band have been anticipating for over 2 years. “For the Beaten” showcases Filter founder Richard Patrick’s signature tenor screams coupled with the band’s unique chugging guitar riffs.

The song comes just mere days after Filter founder Richard Patrick reunited with his former bandmates in Nine Inch Nails for the first time in over 25 years. Patrick, the first guitarist to ever tour with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, was in the band for 4 years before departing to form Filter.

On Sept. 23, Patrick was invited to join NIN for a special fan day Q&A at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The following night Reznor had Patrick and other former and current NIN band members join him for a special performance at the Blossom Center in Cleveland, OH, where the band was originally formed. The expanded Nine Inch Nails performed such staples as “Eraser,” “Wish,” “Sin,” “Gave Up,” “Head Like a Hole,” and a cover of Filter’s 1994 monster hit, “Hey Man Nice Shot.”
