Another new Filter song
2013-05-21 by Raul Stanciu STAFF | 11 Comments

Filter have premiered another song off their upcoming record, The Sun Comes Out Tonight. According to front man Richard Patrick, 'Self-Inflicted' tells the story from a mass shooter's point of view.

He also added: “I wanted to try and understand the mass shooter, so I created a character, wrote the lyrics and performed it from the perspective of the shooter … based on the psychology I read that said there was a pattern,” he explains. “For example, an event like Columbine, [looking at it as if] the shooters were the victims and that somehow we or society made them do it — that somehow they were the victims. That this was self-inflicted.”

the album is shaping up to be a solid 3.5 so far. Good song.

Best song from the album yet. I wasn't a huge fan of the others. This is definitely standard Filter, but its very well done. It would have fit in on The Trouble With Angels (good thing imo) and I don't really think the others would have.

This is gonna be the worst album in their discog. Wish they would do another album like their first four.

Is Richard Patrick fucking high as a kite? He did "Columind" on The Amalgamut.

That is verbatim what I was thinking.

New songs are atrocious at best. Sounds nothing like what they should sound like.
