Filter have inked a deal with Wind-up Records
Filter, who made their name in the ‘90s with alternative rock hits such as “Hey Man Nice Shot” and “Take a Picture,” has a new home. The group has announced that they’ve inked a deal with Wine-up Records, home to rock bands such as Creed, Seether, Five for Fighting and Company of Thieves.
“We’re excited to enter a new phase of our career with Wind-up,” singer Richard Patrick said in a statement. “They’re expecting great things from us and we plan to deliver.”
“I’m happy to say that based on the demos I’ve heard, this new album could very well be their best to date,” Wind-up Records president Ed Vetri added. “Filter is more committed than ever to delivering great repertoire and bringing these songs to life at their live shows throughout 2013.”
Filter’s last full-length was 2010’s “The Trouble with Angels,” and the band is expected to release their follow-up to the album via Wind-up this year. Expect the band to book a tour in support of the upcoming release, as well. For more on Filter, head to the band’s official website.
