On Friday Filter's Richard Patrick Talks Deeply Personal 'Take Me To Heaven' was a top story. Here is the recap: Filter have announced that they will be releasing their new studio album "Crazy Eyes" on April 8th via Spinefarm Records. Late last month they gave fans an early taste with the release of the single "Take Me To Heaven".
Frontman Richard Patrick had this to say about the deeply personal new single, "I was looking into the eyes of my father when he was passing away, and I held his hand".
"He glanced at me really quickly, focused on me, had this look of gratitude, and then he slipped away. I was almost like, 'I hope you're going to heaven'. Scientifically, the idea doesn't make any sense to me, but if there is a heaven, take me there. That's what happened."
Patrick also had the following to say about his motivation on the new album, "I'm completely into this for the music. Being yourself is the most important thing. I authentically went to places I'd never gone before. That was from my heart. I'm trying to be as genuine as possible to what Filter is. It's about sounding f***ing different, forward and original."
