Rather than lean on destiny for direction, Blue October invents and inhabits a future all their own. The platinum-certified alternative quartet from San Marcos, TX—Justin Furstenfeld [vocals, guitar, songwriter], Jeremy Furstenfeld [drums], Ryan Delahoussaye [violin, mandolin, piano], and Matt Noveskey [bass]—consistently evolves with an outlier perspective. For their eleventh studio album and first double-LP, Spinning The Truth Around: Part I & II, Blue October unlocks another creative renaissance.
“We feel like we’re at the height of our craft,” states frontman Justin Furstenfeld. “The lyrics are universal and poignant, but we’re showing the songs can stand alone instrumentally. We know the sound we want.”
The original creative core of Blue October found some new inspiration, as Justin immersed himself in the work of J Dilla. He wrote at a feverish pace at his own Up / Down Studios in San Marcos. Similar to the early days, the record is a band collaboration.
