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."
