MEET THE BAND
Blue October is a rock band originally from Houston, Texas. The band was formed in 1995 and currently consists of Justin Furstenfeld (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jeremy Furstenfeld (drums, percussion), Ryan Delahoussaye (violin/viola, mandolin, piano, backing vocals), C.B. Hudson (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Matt Noveskey (bass guitar, backing vocals).
Blue October released their first album, “The Answers,” in 1998, a well-received debut which sold over 5,000 copies in Houston alone.
Blue October caught the attention of the major record labels while working with producer dB (Don Byczynski) in early 1998. Tracking was done in a studio setup at Justin’s home in San Marcos, Texas. The recordings were sent off to Universal, then in 1999 Blue October signed to Universal Records for the release of their second album, “Consent to Treatment.” The band was dropped by Universal Records in 2002.
After being dropped, the band got together with new guitarist C.B. Hudson, recorded and self-released 2003’s “History for Sale.” Due to larger-than-expected album sales, the band was re-signed to Universal and the album was subsequently re-released on Universal. “Foiled” was released in 2006 and in February 2007, was certified platinum. The album reached the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 Albums chart and #8 on the Rock Albums chart. “Hate Me,” the first single from “Foiled” peaked at #2 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.
The band’s fifth studio album, “Approaching Normal,” was released in March 2009. Like its predecessors it was distributed via Universal. The album debuted at #13 on the Billboard 200 chart and #5 on the Rock Albums chart.
“Any Man in America,” their sixth studio album, was released via Justin Furstenfeld’s Up/Down Records and distributed through RED Distribution. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts and in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart.
