Blue October, the Platinum-selling Texas-based band, have announced details of their UK tour in March 2018. The band will perform eight shows across the country. The band will also release a single, “I Hope You’re Happy” on 2 February 2018, just ahead of the tour. The track is taken from their forthcoming album.

Justin Furstenfeld said, “I’m honestly more excited than ever to return to England. Everyone who knows me knows I grew up living and breathing bands from the UK like The Cure, The Smiths, Joy Division, The Cocteau Twins, Stone Roses, and the list goes on and on. These artists taught me how to write and feel through music. I’m in love with the U.K. now and forever.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
