“This album is about embracing the darkness and feeling the romance in life again,” says frontman Justin Furstenfeld, about Blue October’s tenth studio release, This Is What I Live For. “I’ve always wanted to make my ‘Cure Disintegration’ album, and this would be it. It’s nice, it’s mellow, it’s sad. It’s slow, it’s romantic, it’s nostalgic. But it just rocks so damn hard.”
This Is What I Live For was produced by Justin at his own Up/Down Studios in San Marcos, TX, and the song “I Will Follow You” was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios.
Watch Blue October’s video for “Oh My My,” the band’s first Top 10 single at Alternative Radio since 2009. Since going independent, Blue October’s base has grown immensely, and is now averaging over 100 million streams a year (almost 800 million total), with 15 Top 40 radio singles in 14 years.
On September 26 at 9:00pm ET from the Texas foothills, the band will perform their 2006 platinum album Foiled in its entirety, including the hits “Hate Me” and “Into the Ocean,” and will perform audience favorites from their past 10 albums.
A husband and father of three, Justin has been spending lockdown at his hometown of San Marcos, Texas, where he’s been broadcasting free weekly show ‘Positively Justin’ on Tuesday nights.
