Blue October Postpone Tour Following Chart Success

Blue October

(Prog) Blue October have postponed their German and UK tour to "get more traction" in the US after their album title song Home spent its 16th week in the country's Top 40.

The Texas outfit had a number of shows scheduled next month in support of their eighth studio release, but they've pushed back the live dates until next March so they can capitalise on their domestic chart success over the coming weeks.

Frontman Justin Furstenfeld issued a video statement, saying: "I can't believe Home is doing so well here in America. It's amazing - we haven't done anything like this since we were on a major label.

"Now we're going to be pushing and working as hard as we possibly can to make it react even more in America, because then that translates to UK, Germany and overseas touring.

"So, unfortunately, we're having to reschedule our UK and German dates for next March because we're trying to build a foundation at radio so we can come over there more." Read more here.
