Blue October is the Houston, Texas-based band known for its shimmering melodies and heart-string-pulling lyrics, boasting a powerful lineup of players and one of the most emotionally charged and magnetic frontmen in music today in Justin Furstenfeld.

Blue October has charted nine Top 40 Hot AC and Alternative singles over eight albums with songs like “Into the Ocean,” “Hate Me,” “Home” “Calling You,” “Dirt Room,” “Say It,” “Bleed Out,” and “Fear” from albums such as 2009’s Billboard Top 200 No. 13 debut “Approaching Normal,” 2011’s Billboard No. 8 debut “Any Man in America,” the platinum-selling “Foiled,” Billboard’s No. 13 debut “Sway” and, most recently, 2016’s album “Home,” reaching audiences around the world as the No. 1 Alternative Album, No. 1 Rock Album, No. 1 Independent Album, and No. 5 Current Album in the Top 200.

On April 22, 2016, Blue October released their eighth studio album, “Home.” This album was co-produced by Furstenfeld and Tim Palmer and features mixes from Palmer and Mark Needham.

“’Sway’ was about finding inner peace and learning to live in a healthy way,” says Furstenfeld. “This new album, ‘Home,’ is about what we do with our time on Earth, how we’re going to utilize that time in a positive way and make it the best we possibly can by bettering ourselves.”
