Singled Out: Blue October

Blue October scored their highest chart debut this week with their top 10 album, "Any Man In America." To celebrate we asked frontman Justin Furstenfield tells us about a couple of songs from the very personal album. Here are the stories:

The Chills: "These are the chills that piss you off, because they're more like feeling that you're being controlled by another person. This is the type of feeling that gives you these chills. Yet you still keep falling for it, again and again and again. And that falling for it perpetuates these chills.

They can be a good thing in a healthy relationship. But in an unhealthy relationship when there is a child involved, those chills are not good news and never really go away. Except now, those chills would come from my daughter looking at us both and saying 'Why can't we just all be together?' Those are the f**kin' chills I'm talking about."

The Follow Through: ""The Follow Through" is the last song on the album and it's meant to convey hope for the future. Hope has to be there; I mean, there's a baby involved. It's basically, 'Look, let's lay down our bullsh*t and move on. We've got to move on and be stronger. Let's stop fighting. Please.' It's the happy ending that every parent wishes for upon getting a divorce. It's divorce's happy ending.

Now put that happy ending in the mix with conniving lawyers, brutal lies, and constant threats and you have yourself trapped with a serial accuser. It is a fact that a serial accuser will do anything in their power for the sake of control - which in my case is to keep me away from our child. The one thing I've learned the most is when a mother loses her child, she is sorrowful, sympathetic, and sad. When a father loses his child he instantly wants to fight and do anything in his power to get them back. Now take those two personalities to court and put a muzzle on the guy and you have my situation."

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
