This summer will belong to Blue October. The band is back, and they'll release a new album, Any Man In America, on Aug. 16. They'll also tour the U.S. to support its release.
Having declared their independence from the major label system, the band will release the album via their own Up/Down Records with distribution from RED Music/Sony Distribution, MRI Associated Labels and Brando Records.
From the opener, “Feel Again,” to the hopeful last track, “The Follow Through,” Any Man In America is an album that takes the listener on a journey and chronicles the personal events that have taken place in singer Justin Furstenfeld’s life since their last release.
The album was produced by Furstenfeld, who produced the band’s platinum album, Foiled, together with Tim Palmer, who has produced and mixed for Robert Plant, Pearl Jam and U2. Any Man In America is the follow-up to 2009’s Approaching Normal and is the seventh studio album in the band’s 16-year history.
Blue October is Justin Furstenfeld (vocals, guitar), Ryan Delahoussaye (violin, mandolin, piano), Matt Noveskey (bass) and Jeremy Furstenfeld (drums).
The debut single from the new album, “The Chills,” is available on iTunes today. Check out the video:
