Filter preview Take Me To Heaven video

Filter have issued a preview of the video for Take Me To Heaven.

The tune is the lead single from the band’s seventh album Crazy Eyes, which is due on April 8 via Wind-Up Records.

The band says: “Here’s a taste of what’s to come..”

The follow-up to 2013’s The Sun Comes Out Tonight was produced by frontman Richard Patrick, who took on the role in an effort to help shape the direction and sound.

Patrick tells Billboard: “On the last record, there was another guy at the label who signed us, and I felt a responsibility to him. He wanted a big rock sound so I let the guitars be the main focus.

“With this record I said, ‘Let me focus on being the kind of artist I was when I was at Warner Bros.’ and Wind-Up was way into that. It’s way more of what we used to be and so much of where we are.”

The singer has branded the project as the creation of a ‘new industrial’ sound that reflects elements of the group’s early records.

Patrick is joined on the album by guitarist Oumi Kapila, bassist Ashley Dzerigian, drummer Chris Reeve and keyboardist Bobby Miller.

Filter will launch Crazy Eyes on the Make America Hate Again tour which gets underway in April. They’ll be joined on the trek by Orgy, Vampires Everywhere and Death Valley High.
