Blue October is a band out of Houston fronted by the kindest most down to earth rock stars I've ever met, Justin Furstenfeld. We at Alt 92.9, have not only championed him and his amazing band for years featuring Blue October at free live concerts in and around Boston (including on a boat cruising the harbor) but we have developed true and lasting friendship with Justin, Jeremy and the rest of the band.
Ok with all the pleasantries out of the way, I can now gush about their new song "I Hope You're Happy" my pick of the week.
"I Hope You're Happy" is the title track from Blue October's forthcoming 9th studio album which has a tentative release date of June 8 of this year. This new album will be the first Blue October album which Justin produced himself.
After this song (the first off the album), was first released it became one of the top alternative rock downloads on iTunes, and is creating quite a buzz in the Alt rock world across the country, largely thanks to it's progressive 80's vibe.
Check it out and let me know if you get the same vibe great I get from this and all of Blue October's music.
Here's - I Hope You're Happy:
