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.”
Ticket price includes applicable sales tax. Due to the concerns over the spread of COVID-19 or “coronavirus” as it’s more commonly called, it’s with a heavy heart that we are postponing our show at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on April 8th and rescheduling it to July or August (exact date is still being worked out). Tickets purchased for the show will be honored at the rescheduled date. We will let you know once we have the new date confirmed. Our concerns first and foremost are for you, our fans, who have shown us time and time again how much you support us. I know many of you were looking forward to this show as much as we were, no place we’d rather be, but like each of you, we want to do everything we can to keep everyone healthy and happy.
