Last week, Blast caught up with Justin Furstenfeld and Matt Noveskey of the band Blue October at the House of Blues. The guys talked about their Pick Up the Phone tour, which focuses on bringing awareness to the subject of suicide.
Last week, Furstenfeld also opened up to Blast’s Brooklynne Kelly Peters.
Furstenfeld formed Blue October as an outlet for his clinical depression. He describes Blue October’s music as "bipolar art rock; up and down, all over the place." The content of the music isn’t something meant for dinner conversation. "I like to bring shit up that people don’t like to talk about so we can get it out in the open â€” the elephant in the room."
