Happy release day, Blue October!
Platinum-selling progressive/alternative rock band Blue October has a new album out today, Tuesday August 16th, about 14 years after lead singer, songwriter and guitarist Justin Furstenfeld gave birth to the band in 1995. This sixth studio album by Blue October is called Any Man in America and I am really excited to tell you, if you are interested, there are two ways to listen:
1) You can stream the entire album FOR FREE from AOL Music. All 13 tracks are available for your audiophiliac pleasure.
2) If you like the album, Amazon.com has a special offer today only: Buy the album in MP3 form for only $3.99. That's less than a Subway sandwich, folks. But if you're the hesitant type, just remember it's the "Deal of the Day" and tomorrow it won't be.
Plus, as a bonus treat, here is the music video for the sixth song from the new album and the first single, "The Chills":
A description of the album from the press release:
From the sentimental opener "Feel Again" to the hopeful last track, "The Follow Through," Any Man In America is an album that takes the listener on a cathartic journey and chronicles the deeply personal events that have transpired 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.
If you're loving Blue October, catch them on tour as they promote the new album, beginning in their home state of Texas on August 17th and ending in Atlanta, Georgia on October 20th.
