PLAYBACK:stl interviews Justin Furstenfeld

PLAYBACK:stl  has a fantastic interview with Justin about the acoustic tour, acoustic album, studio album, C.B. leaving the band, Blue October fans and much more.

Tell me what’s behind the whole idea of the acoustic tour.
We did some acoustic dates last year. We were just so happy. It was a chance for us to just sit back and tell the stories of each song, and not just be so rock ’n’ roll. As much as I love doing that, I love also just sitting down playing guitar and not having to worry about shoving it all down your throat.

I think you’ve always been a somewhat unclassifiable artist. It’s in the genre of rock, but it’s not just one sound.
I think that’s what I kind of love about our fans—listen to me; I hate that word, fans. The people that believe in us, the ones that actually allow us to be who we are. Not the radio and the corporate record labels who are like, “OK, you guys are too all over the place. Which one are you going to be?” It’d be so boring to just play one style of music for the rest of your life. Why not try everything, but do it with a passion?

Tell me about the lineup switch.
C.B. [Hudson] wanted to be a family man. (I tried to do that once.) We still love him to pieces, he still loves us to pieces; it’s a healthy split. Julian [Mandrake] is just an amazing guy and we believe in him completely. He’s always been there for us. When I broke my leg on that last tour he came with us for eight months, all over the world, and when I was better he had to leave. He’s an amazing guitarist, too, a really good guy.

Read the entire interview here.

InsideSTL interviews Jeremy Furstenfeld

InsideSTL talked to Jeremy about the upcoming acoustic tour, the acoustic album and Blue October’s new album, tentatively titled Any Man In America. I love it when reporters that are actual fans of the band. You can tell J. Boyd is just by the opening sentence of the article.

Blue October is a band that is hard to describe. One part energy, one part immense talent and many parts emotion, all adding up to one of the most powerful bands I have ever come across.

I had a chance to catch up with drummer Jeremy Furstenfeld to chat about their upcoming live release “Ugly Side” and impending 14 date acoustic tour in support. One of those dates will stop at The Pageant in The Loop on Friday, May 6th. Furstenfeld was very upbeat in talking about the tour saying “I am looking forward to getting back to the way these songs were written and to play them in a more intimate, exposed setting.”

I asked Jeremy if this was a planned release, he said “We planned to record it, but not on the release…. but after going back through it, we were like you know there is some good stuff in here”. He also stressed the importance to stay out there in front of people in this age of mass information so this release would be a good bridge to their next studio album because “people are quick to move on to the next thing.”

I asked Jeremy about the new the new studio album, Blue October’s 6th, which is planned for a late Summer release. He said it is in the final mixing stages and the working title is “Any Man In America”.
