“Hate Me” is the kind of epic hit most bands dream about. With that one song, Blue October has become a household name across North America. The tune’s ability to crossover with audiences is just part of its appeal, as Blue October singer Justin Furstenfeld’s emotive vocals resound with the universality of the song’s themes of self-deception and failure. Yet that’s just one track from this Houston, Texas band, which released its first album, The Answers, in 1998. Its Universal debut, Consent to Treatment, followed in 2000, but it wasn’t until radio stations picked up on the single “Calling You” (also featured on the American Wedding soundtrack), off the band’s 2003 independent release History for Sale, that things really began to take off for Blue October.

Now, with the success of Foiled and its gargantuan single “Hate Me”, Blue October is one of the hottest modern rock draws in the world. With plenty of material to draw from, including the blistering tracks that make up its latest disc, Blue October puts on the kind of thrilling rock show that radiates strength and confidence.
