Crazy Eyes, the new record from multiplatinum industrial alternative luminary group Filter comes from a place of deconstruction. As a nod to Filter’s debut, Short Bus, the forthcoming release (and Filter’s seventh full-length), Crazy Eyes [Wind-up Records] eschews the signature wall of guitars heard on their last release (The Sun Comes Out Tonight) and breathes with a stark, industrialized menace that’s equally haunting and hypnotic. Richard completely immersed himself in the process after getting off the road in support of 2013’s The Sun Comes Out Tonight—which moved over 8,500 copies first-week, 10 million streams to date and a Top 13 radio track with “What Do You Say.” Ultimately, Crazy Eyes comes back to the fact that Richard remains honest. “I’m completely into this for the music,” he leaves off. “Being yourself is the most important thing. I authentically went 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 fucking different, forward, and original.”
