Blue October’s two latest albums were both spawned by Furstenfeld’s nasty divorce and subsequent custody battle.
There is no simple life, though, which is perhaps what draws so many people to Blue’s music. The band is like the Adele of Rock music, helping listeners channel all the dark, twisted instances in their lives. Your cheating, abusive spouse or drug addiction could be decades in the past, but a few minutes with Blue October have a tendency to make it all come rushing back.
But, that’s good! We’re a generation who likes to bottle stuff up. (Unless we’re blasting it all over Facebook.) Blue October, whether on the radio or in concert, helps its fans deal with shit in a therapeutic fashion.
