Last week, Ohio industrial rock vets Filter released their first new music in several years in the form of a music video for track “Thoughts and Prayers.”
Today, the band have revealed an official lyric video for said song, which you can now check out below. The new track will appear on the band’s upcoming album ‘Murica,’ which is scheduled for release later this year.
Speaking to Loudwire, Filter frontman Richard Patrick had the following to say:
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.
