BLUE OCTOBER RETURN AUGUST 16th WITH NEW RELEASE ANY MAN IN AMERICA, DEBUTS HEARTFELT MUSIC VIDEO FOR “THE FEEL AGAIN (STAY)” First Single “The Chills” Available On iTunes, U.S. Tour Kicks Off on August 17th

In support of their upcoming album, platinum-selling band Blue October has released the touching video for “The Feel Again (Stay).”  Directed by Merritt Fields, “The Feel Again (Stay)” is one of Blue October’s most truthful and haunting videos to date and gives fans a taste of the new album, Any Man In America, set for release August 16th on singer Justin Furstenfeld’s own Up/Down Records. If you’ve already heard the first single, “The Chills”, currently at radio, be sure to watch  the video for “The Feel Again (Stay)” for a glimpse at the musical diversity that has won over fans around the world.  The song went live on iTunes this week and the fan reaction shows that the band has once again touched listeners, as only they know how.  The song is available for $.99 and can be purchasedhere.

With Father’s Day right around the corner, “The Feel Again (Stay)” could not be more relevant as lead singer and loving father Justin Furstenfeld chronicles the dissolution of his marriage and separation from his daughter.  “I was separated at the time, and my daughter was in Nebraska while I moved back to Texas alone,” Furstenfeld explains. “I decided to document everything. If I messed up along the way, I’d tell that too.  I called the album my ‘Audio Journal’ as I was writing. I didn’t want the music to just be about me though. I wanted it to help other fathers in America who might be going through the same thing.”

In addition, “The Chills,” the debut single from Any Man In America, is available on iTunes and can be purchased here.  The song will also be going for adds at modern rock radio with an official impact date of June 28th, but is already receiving early spins nationwide based on the band’s previous radio success.

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 Furstenfeld’s life. The album was produced by Furstenfeld (who produced the band’s platinum album Foiled), alongside Tim Palmer who is known for his work with Robert Plant, Pearl Jam, and U2. Any Man In America is the follow-up to 2009’sApproaching Normal and is the 7th studio album in the band’s 16-year history.

After years of relentless touring, the band exploded into the mainstream with their hit single “Hate Me.”  The song, from their 2006 release Foiled, garnered the band a new fan base when it catapulted to the top of the modern rock charts.  That album went on to sell 1.6 million copies and the band continued their success at Modern Rock radio with the Top 10 hit “Dirt Room” from Approaching Normal.  Blue October will kick off a U.S. tour on August 17th in their home state of Texas.
