Filter is ready to rock the states on their new tour called “Make America Hate Again”. The band is coming up on their Seventh full length album called “Crazy Eyes”. Filter were popular during the mid-‘90s wave of industrial rock championed by Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor. The comparisons to NINE are apparent since Filter’s founders were originally part of Reznor’s backing band before forming their own group. On the strength of the singles “Hey Man, Nice Shot” and “Take a Picture,” Filter were a favorite among alternative-rock audiences before taking a lengthy hiatus for much of the 2000s. The long stretch without the sounds of Filter that we know and love so much made fans curious if the band ever had any plans to come back and rock once again? Im glad all the doubts faded because Filter is coming back strong as ever with their new single ‘Take me to heaven”. Reconstruction requires deconstruction. The institutions must be razed in order to clear space for the future to flourish. you must break barriers and tear down the old in order to build up the new. Filter founder, singer, guitarist, and producer Richard Patrick knows this routine well. Its what established the group as a multiplatinum industrial alternative luminary, and catalyzed their seventh full length album! The new album called “Crazy Eyes” is anticipated to come out April, 8th 2016 via Wind-up records. Richard had this to say about the process of making this new full length album.
“Filter is the mind,”. “It’s your interpretation or my interpretation. Our thing is to look at people’s unexplainable behavior and assess it, using sound. It’s a way to approximate the insanity of the human condition. The reason this record is so fucking heavy and strange is it’s exactly the opposite of what’s popular. It’s not pretty. It’s not cute. It’s real.”
This is exactly what the people want to hear when they listen to a band like Filter. Its like the band literally “Filtered” out all of the bullshit and stuck with the hard rocking tunes we know and love the band for. A perfect example of this is filters new single off that album. Take me to heaven is the new single and it hits you hard! This jam makes you want to bang your head and raise you fist in the air to the almighty rock gods! The new single gives us a lot of insight on what the new album is going to sound like and I don’t think filter fans will be disappointed. But you can be the judge of that yourself, heres their new single “Take me to heaven”,
