Richie T Interviews Justin of Blue October

Listen Here

On having his daughter on the bus with him:

"Ever sine I was a teenager people would ask me what is your goal in life? To sell a bunch of records and be able get a bus that sits your wife and your kids one day so that when you go out you can go everywhere with them. So now I get to live that dream, it's hanging out with them and then going and rocking until three in the morning and then hanging out with them again."

On life right now:

 "Things are amazing, I never knew that things could be so good ya know? I think back in 2008 when "Hate Me" blew up, that was a little crazy, that was real crazy. But now we're starting to feel that whole thing happen again with "Bleed Out" and I think I'm in a lot better place for it to happen. I enjoy life now, I enjoy every day."

On Depression:

 "I came out with songs like "The End" and songs like "Dirt Room" which were great songs, they just- they weren't connecting. I was taking that depression and that honesty and I was pushing it up so far up everybody's face that it was like oh god, this guy's got some crazy ass issues. Which of course I did, but I could have stopped and gone, yeah that's the song not me. But what's really cool about now is that I can get on stage and I play them- man all that energy is so much more there and say (whining) look at me! Now it's just so much passion.

LISTEN to Blue October's new album,

BIO

BLUE OCTOBER, the San Marcos, TX-based band known for shimmering rock songs and haunting lyrics on albums such as 2009’s Billboard Top 15 debut, Approaching Normal, 2011’s Billboard Top Ten debut Any Man In America and the Platinum-selling Foiled, makes a triumphant return with Sway (Up/Down Records), the band’s first album in two years.

With lush, atmospheric songs such as “Bleed Out,” “Angels In Everything” and “Fear,” and the edgy rocker “Put It In,” the Texas four-piece comes back strong with a revitalized energy and a positive outlook. As singer Justin Furstenfeld puts it: “This album is about why life is so beautiful. It’s about facing fears and recognizing miracles every day. It’s about enjoying yourself and realizing that life is not something you can half-ass.”

The band began writing the album after coming off a series of tour dates in 2012. Drummer Jeremy Furstenfeld echoes his brother’s attitude. “, “The band is in a really great space now, everyone is healthy, happy, and doing well. That’s changed our point of view, and you can hear that new perspective on the album.”
