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”.
